Satin, velvet, beads, rhinestones … ahhh, the beautiful era of the 1920s. Gone were the tight corsets, women cut their hair in stylish bobs and became emancipated with fashion.

Old Hollywood glamour is definitely my favorite style era.
It was so sleek and sophisticated. It’s as if they were
wearing works of art!

Early '80s-there was so much to choose from-short or long hemlines, heels or flats, dresses were everywhere.
We still got dressed for work.

I love the '80s fashion, which my daughter wanted me to roll up her britches the other day, and I did it Hammer style!

Earthier comfort of the late '60s.
I like the more natural way of beauty and fashion.

My favorite fashion era was the late '60s-early '70s.
It was a time of warm, earthy colors, soft fabrics,
minimal accessories and comfort.

The '40s combined simplicity and elegance. Fabric textures
abounded including fur, tweed, velvet and suede.

The '40s were so glamorous with the beautiful hats and gloves.
The fabrics were so elegant. Men wore hats and dressed to complement their date. People cared about how they looked.
