Throwback Thursday~ Barbie is Fashion?

throwbackthursday2

Yes, I can hear you thinking to yourselves “Did I read that right? Did she say Barbie Fashion?” And I did say that. Barbie is as old as some of us are and older than others. But she was just as much a part of the fashiontude in the 40’s as were some of the top designers.Take a look and see what I mean. She emulated all the latest styles and even boosted their acceptance at times. From Vogue to Couture.

For throwbacks, these outfits are still eye-catching today and almost equally as popular.

I guess folks decided that these designs were keepers after all.

That’s all for this Throwback.

Try It Tuesday~Tye Dye Today

When I first started hearing about Tie Dye being back in fashion I must admit I cringed a little. Let me explain myself, for those who are heating up and saying “how could you not like it!” And for those agreeing, let’s take a step back and consider a few things.

Tie Dye today is not the same as it was in the 70’s. I can back that up too. I started out looking and looking with a very biased mind and eye. I was sure that today’s Tie Dye was the same as it used to be. I was sure of it. THEN, I stumbled upon these:

Now I do have to admit that the skirt alone would  not be up to par but they attached it to a nice outfit. Still not convinced?

Check out these then:

This one has a nice vibrant coloring to it which makes it more appealing. It is also not a t-shirt or shorts. The colors do not blur together in a rather neutral shade either.

Stay with me now, I have more. I am determined that you can enjoy Tie Dye as much as I’m learning to.

 
With a front and back view this is encouraging
yet I am not a fan of the sheer skirting attached
to the back of it. I personally feel that it takes 
away from the “elegance” of the dress. I must 
admit though, the shoes caught my eye first!
And it gets even better. This one has elegance and class. I might consider this dress “dance worthy”.
And here’s one you could actually wear to a nice function or even to work at the office! 
I have to add that it does have the swirl of the older Tie Dye but it seems “classier” here.
.
And speaking of the office….
For those with a more casual style, there are a few for you as well.
                                                   

                                                      
                                                              
As a final coo I add this one last photo. 
While I wouldn’t go for the shade shown here, it does tantalize the mind and 
tempt one to try it on other hosiery. Maybe Tie Dye white tights/hose?

These are not necessarily Tie to Dye for but they do put a new perspective on an old fashion idea.
I hope you find this new old fashion interesting enough to go out and “try it”. Maybe by next Tuesday?
If you do choose to, be sure to come back and share your experience with us and some photos too.

Spectacular Sunday~It’s A Jungle Out There

Jungles, their patterns and wildlife have long been favorites in the fashion world. Today is no exception. It has been my experience that these themes tend to be favored by those who are considered more “eccentric”. Especially those in positions of leadership, red heads, and women with long, manicured nails. But this is not always the case. Here are some spectacular jungle-themed items to view.

Fashion walks a fine line along the boundaries of 
CHEETAH
 -VS-
LEOPARD
Clearly the cheetah has “spots” but the leopard has “splotches”.
These shoes were listed as 
Leopard, but they are not, they are cheetah
These gloves are the only ones I found that were correctly labeled cheetah.

I did not find many leopard items.
Another cat favorite is the tiger. 

The animal print I’ve seem more commonly lately is that of the zebra.
 
                                         
Giraffe comes in blacks and browns but I have yet to see a real giraffe with black spots.
That’s okay, fashion comes in all types of colors so that’s all that matters.
                                                
 

                                
In the world of fashion, it is a jungle out there. But with a little help and guidance
you don’t have to be lost. For more help go to our FB page:

Throwback Thursday~Sexy Legs

Legs and their appearance have been an ongoing attraction for years. Not just recent years, more than  YEARS ago, actually ions of years ago. One of the most popular accessorizing of these lengthy and even the not-so-lengthy limbs has been hosiery.  According to Merriam Webster Online Dictionary the first known usage of hosiery dates clear back to 1739! Big changes occurred in the 1940’s with the seamless hosiery becoming more popular as silk hose were replaced with  nylon for use on “dressy occasions”. Actual pantyhose appeared in the 1960’s. Today both hosiery and pantyhose are popular. Here are a few I found most fascinating.

Thanks for taking a “blast to the past” & present with us.

Throwback Thursday~Toe-tally Sock-ed

I came across an ad for toe socks the other day and reflected on my memories of them. Toe socks originated in 1969. I had a pair of toe socks but being hyper-sensitive the thickness between my toes drove my nuts. My daughter however has no such issues. She loves toe socks. As a “tribute” to her and the others all over the world who love these cute little throwbacks, here are a variety of toe socks.

Some can bring smiles to your face and your feet.

Some bring a new “look” to your wardrobe.

They’re designed for men

For fun
Maybe even for comfort. These appear to be very thin. 
Maybe I could wear this pair. 
I may have to find out where I can get a pair.
They are designed to be for dance practices

I know for a fact I could never ever wear these.
To assist in the prevention of athlete’s feet
For something that started in the late 60’s toe socks have come a long way. They were brightly colored with stripes and now come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and styles. No matter which ones you like to wear, you’re sure to be toe-tally fashionable.
