Blast From the Past

Who doesn't love the iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, the flirty appeal of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and other retro favorites...I think we all have a little bit of glamour envy for the beautiful starlets of the past.  And, in fashion vintage/retro inspiration is especially prevalent right now. 

It is with that in mind, that we at Flourish are hosting a fashion show on May 31st, with the theme of fashion from the past.  Our "Decade-nt Fashion Show" will feature looks from the 1920's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and today!  RSVP to event here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/events/398904850130146/

Check out my take on what details from each decade are having a comeback right now:
