Blogmas 2019 – Through The Decades With POSH, part 2/4

2010s are ending and within a month we welcome the new decade of 2020s to begin. But before that in this year's blogmas and in celebration of the new decade we are not going to even look at Christmas derocation, present ideas nor recepies but our favorite fashion eras in the previous century. What's more, to keep this Blogmas exciting we are not going to start from the beginning or end in the ending but go through some of the fashion decades in a totally random order. I am also turning "Posh blog" temporarily into a century defining "Posh magazine" that glances through times with a help of some fun cover shoots as well as outfits to remember. Are you ready to go through the decades with Posh?





Popular culture's golden age starts from the 80s when MTV was born and cable TVs became household necessities. Movies, music and fashion had never been so global, celebrities so famous and mass unemployment so high. Yet people wanted all the glamour. Basicly, the less you had the louder you wanted to be. The bigger and bolder you were the cooler you appeared. Especially, in Britain this was all a response to the poor economic situation, an escape from the grey reality to a colorful, rich and fabulous Blitz night club that had a dress code more extravagant than any other place in the world.

80s was the decade of block colors, big hair, dramatic makeup, power dressing and The New Romantics which designers from Westwood to Donna Karan perfected, defined and invented. But most of all it was a time of icons and royals of all kind. Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Boy George and Princes Diana alike set trend after trend in sequins, lace, shoulder pads and hairdos that till to this day are recognised world wide. In short, 80s was the era of wild dressing, feverish excess, acid wash denim, Nike Air Jordans and overload of fuchsia eye shadow.









"Do you really want to hurt me?

Do you really want to make me cry?

Precious kisses, words that burns me

Lovers never ask you why

– Culture Club (Do you really want to hurt me 1982)








"Cause we are living in as material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl"

– Madonna (Material girl 1984)







"Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator

Bring us down?

Oh, no, let's go

Let's go crazy

Let's get nuts

Look for the purple banana

Till they put us in the truck, let's go"

– Prince (Let's go crazy 1984)
