Big Shoulders - 1984

First, thank you all for your kind comments about last week's series on moving like a lady. The response was overwhelming, with many requests for more. I am actively searching for more information like this for you, and promise to bring it to you in the future.

Moving on, I finally broke down and purchased some vintage magazines from the 1980's. This decade has been influencing current fashion for the past couple of seasons, and it is time to admit that clothing from the 80's is now considered vintage.

Several designers showed exaggerated shoulder lines for Fall 2009. Above, two looks from Louis Vuitton. You think those shoulders are new? Take a look at how we did it in the spring of 1984.
