Fashion Friday - Shoulder pad




I am linking up with Kori over at Blonde Espisodes.  After thinking of Designing Women I had to do one about the faboulous 1980s fashion trend, Shoulder Pads.

Who's the Boss?


I will admit that Who's the Boss?  sticks out the most for me. 



Designing Women.


I remember having shirts and sweaters with those huge shoulder pads.  I am so glad those things are out now.

  3. I remember my mom cutting them out of her blouses too. That was a strange trend that I never understood.

  4. Ruthie, they may be a thing of the past, but you know my Mother still wears the heck out of those things. God bless. I'm so glad I can dress Madeline, otherwise I know she'd be getting dresses with custom-sewn shoulder pads. Ha! and by the way, I may have to get a season of DW so when you visit us in LA, we can enjoy some good old Southern sass.

    Love you!

    PS~I'll call you tonight after I put bebe to bed.

  8. Such a fun look back! It is just amazing how things are the height of fashion at one time and then we just shake our heads at the thought of having worn them later! Happy Friday!
