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?
POSH GOES TO THE 70S...
70s was an eventful decade in both good and bad. There were terrorism, the Vietnam war was still going on, everybody took apart in strikes and the oil crisis shaked the world. Women protested for equal pay and other minorities such as gays and black people raised voices for their lifes and rights. What's more, icons like Jimi Henriks, Jannis Choplin and Elvis Presley were found death due to overdose. So basicly, everything just seemed miserably terrifying...
However, 70s wasn't all a so dark either. Namenly, entertainment was all about fun. Therefore, escapism from everyday life could be seen in pop culture and, especially, in fashion. From polyester flares to platforms and first Star Wars movie to the rise of glam rock it's obvious that world was hungry for fantasy and glamour from the past decades. Therefore, Biba opened its fabulous doors offering a trip to the luxurious 20s and 30s while New York's Studio 54 made people's glittering disko dreams a reality. Style icons such as Bianca Jagger, David Bowie, Farrah Fawcett and Jerry Hall set the looks of the decade in designs from Yves Saint Laurent to Diane von Furstenburg. And of course during the 1970s, our beloved Westwood put Punk on the map with a help of Malcom MacLaren.
Simply put, the 70s was a search of a sunnier world as much as a slap on the face with a few safety pins.
OUR 70S PHOTOSHOOT STARTS WITH

IT IS NEEDLES TO SAY THAT THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET FABULOUSLY 70S.
OBVIOUSLY, 1970S ARE NOTHING WITHOUT A FEW FANTASTICAL MOOVES TO THE BEAT OF OUR FAVORITE GLAM ROCK STAR DAVID BOWIE...
"THERE'S A STARMAN WAITHING IN THE SKY
HE'S TOLD US NOT TO BLOW IT
'CAUSE HE KNOWS IT'S ALL WORTHWHILE...
– STARMAN (DAVID BOWIE)
...AND THEN BECAUSE SOMETIMES LIFE IS ALL ABOUT ESCAPISM WE PUT ON A PARE OF LARGER THAN LIFE SUNGLASSES AND MOVE TO THE MUSIC OF A PIANO MASTER...
"SO GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD
WHERE THE DOGS OF SOCIETY HOWL
YOU CAN'T PLANT ME IN YOUR PENT HOUSE
I'M GOING BACK TO MY PLOUGH...
– GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD (ELTON JOHN)
... LASTLY, DESPITE ALL THE BAD, HORRIBLE AND SCARY ISN'T IT STILL WONDERFUL TO BE ALIVE, LIVING AND LAUGHING AFTER IT ALL?
Thank you so much for reading!
