40 Random Questions Answered
1-What is your favorite decade for fashion
I would have to say I appreciate something from all decades, but my favorites are the late 60’s and the 1970’s. It bugs me so bad when people think the 70’s are all tacky polyester leisure suits and bell bottoms. It wasn’t. Watch the movie American Hustle, to see what I am talking about! So chic!! I love the 1920’s and 30’s as well.

Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha,Van Gogh, Antonio Lopez, and so many others I can’t even think right now! I went to art school, so I really appreciate all art, and artists. They make the world a more beautiful place.
