Daily Prompt: New Sensation
by Krista on February 20, 2014
Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.
Oh, yes! I can relate. Ah, sweet youth, so many years ago. I grew up during the 60’s and 70’s. To me, those were the greatest years in my history. Music was a big thing, and hippies were an even bigger thing. I was a ‘wanna be’ hippie; too young to really understand what the ‘hippie revolution’ really was, but I was drawn to the lifestyle and considered myself a hippie, (still do).
I wore the bell-bottoms and raggedy t-shirts. Back then I wasn’t drawn to the flowing skirts, but I love them now. I still tend to dress ‘hippie style’ and love the Bohemian look. I’ve always heard that ‘fashion comes around again about every fifty years or so’.
I wore the leg warmers in the 80’s, and even though I love Madonna’s music, her fashion statement was a bit to risqué for me, (besides the fact that I didn’t have enough in the boob department to pull off the look). I loved, and still do, the skinny jeans. I also loved the goth garb, but felt I was a little too old for the style.
My favorite style comes from my favorite female vocalist, Stevie Nicks. If I could come back in another lifetime, I would choose to be Stevie Nicks.

The only hair fashion statement I ever tried to pull off, was that of Farrah Fawcett, (RIP). Does anybody remember ‘Charlie’s Angels’?

In summary, I’ve spent most of my life in blue jeans and t-shirts.
