Inspiration: Golden Girls

All credit goes to Linde and Chris for making this observation: It seems like nowadays, hipster girls are channeling the original chick clique- The Golden Girls for fashion inspiration. From full coverage polyester and lace dresses that are borrowed from grandmother’s closet to sequin drenched tunics, the influence of the Golden Girls can be spotted both on the streets and the runway (super saturated blazers and early 90s florals are gonna be major for spring).

Golden Girls Intro:

This trend, like any other, is only flattering when in moderation. I was blessed with fashionable grandparents but that certainly doesn’t mean that I want to look like I AM a grandparent. Ya dig? I mean, channeling the past is one thing but I’m not ready to move into a Florida retirement community. Just think about the fact that in the fashion world when you’re being compared to Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche or Rose it’s because you’ve had a “what was she thinking” moment. I don’t think it’s fair to give those lady such a bad rap though – so if you’re gonna use them as inspiration, keep it fresh.

P.S. – How awesome is this photo of Bea Arthur with Angela Lansbury?
