  1. Robin says:

    I loved the ’80’s look. I loved “Golden Girls” not only for the comedy but the fashions (especially Dorothy’s clothes).

    I lOVE this post -its fun to see fashions from the past, so interesting.
    Thank you

  3. Wow! This was a very interesting post and must have been very time consuming. Appreciate all the time and effort you put into this. It was fun going back in time while reading this. Thanks.

    LOVED your post today! The clothes in the 40s and 50’s were awesome. I live near Kent State University and there is a Fashion Museum on Campus that I want to visit.

      What a wonderful trip down memory lane. I could insert my own pictures beginning with my mother in the 20s, my tiny waist (19 in) skirts and dresses, on to my Mary Quant suit I made (you could buy designer patterns) to power suits when I went back to work. I’m inspired to make a scrapbook of fashion starting with my grandmother. Thank you!!

      I live fairly close to Kent State also. And have been saying for several years I want to visit too. I wish their fashion/design major existed when I was college-age!

        As someone who works in higher ed, and who did my MA part time in my 30’s while working, fixing up my house, getting pregnant and having my daughter (she was 2 1/2 when I graduated), I very much encourage you to think of your entire life as being ‘college-age’. Life long learning is a thing. I work with several students who are in their 30’s and 40s, and know there are students in their 70s+ in other parts of the university. No reason you can’t explore the Kent State classes and see what they have available for continuing education etc, especially since they have that major that’d be so interesting for you!

    What a great trip down memory lane! I remember those styles starting with the 60s. Was and still am fascinated by Jackie Kennedy’s style. But my closet held those tailored suits for work and bell bottom pants ( I still remember a great pair in Apple green) and crop tops.
    Then went into law enforcement work in the mid 70s and uniforms were front and center. I never really lost the dressing well idea, it just didn’t fit into my profession.
    Now that I am retired, I’m really having fun finding
    my new style. My closet is looking really well rounded.
    Thank you so much for your posts, I look forward to each one,

    I enjoyed the history lesson! My mom was born in 1923 and her mom in 1900. Seeing these pictures and reading about the decades was fun for me because I (now 67) have memories of them in some of these styles.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this stroll through fashion history! I too had go-go boots and fake ( can’t even say faux, they were that bad) white leather pants. Fortunately, there are no pictures remaining!

    What a great post! I remember the 80’s and 90’s very well. Padded shoulders and pastels. Oh my!

    Thanks for this fun post, Beth. I adore fashion of all ages!

    My Aunt just passed away,nearly 100 years old. I just reviewed her century of photos,demonstrating exactly what you have shown here. Most amazing was the flapper era beachwear including stockings and spats! You did a fabulous and thorough job. My Aunt was always glamorous and understated in pearls, skirts and coiffed hair. Grace and Jackie would be honored.
