Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Dreadful Invalid: "Which decade has your favourite fashion trends?"

I am a big fan of mid-century modern (as you might have guessed, given the peeks at my home you get from Daily Dose of Cute pix and home-based selfies). Mid-century modern covers a couple of decades — roughly 1945 to 1975. Although I like the earlier part of the era and its Atomic design, my favorite is the latter part of the era, starting around 1965. Something about the fashion and design from that period really speaks to me.

I mean!
