Thursday Thrill – Oscar Night: Which Decade Wins?

Academy Award Postcard Invites "And the Oscar goes to..."
Oscar Party Invitation Postcards by Girl in Gear Studio

Fashion changes quickly and everyone has their favorites. The Academy Awards technically started in 1929, so we will start our fashion reel there and head through to the 1980's. There is, undoubtedly, a wide range of styles within each year, but I've selected one dress that reminds me of each decade. Which decade do you find yourself most drawn to?

    1. Beautiful ombre huh?! Tough pick for me. I favor the 30's and 40's pieces, but would probably pick the 40's in real life. :-)

  34. OMG! I am so excited for the Oscars and to see the dresses and all the outfits! I love your vintage twist on this! I would see myself wearing the 50s dress and channel Audrey Hepburn as well as the 80s dress since fashion of the 80s is definitely a trend right now!
