Reliving My Passion For Fashion Over At Obsessory
As a teenager in the 80’s, I was all about fashion.
I had a huge passion for fashion.
Music, dying my hair in various colours and patterns, and worrying about how to spike my hair to an extreme height, were big obsessions for me back then – fashion was where it was at.
I was a teenager at the height of the second British (music) invasion.
At that time, I lived and breathed British new wave/punk music and fashion. I was obsessed with all the “hot” British musicians (I’m looking at you Duran Duran!).
I really, really wanted to have a British accent, and longed to visit Great Britain.
To this day, I still love music, British bands…and still long to visit Great Britain.
But, thankfully, I no longer dye – or spike – my hair…or wear black from head-to-toe.
My fashion sense? With a nod to the band Right Said Fred, I stopped doing “my little turn on the catwalk” and left my passion for fashion behind in the early 90’s.
But not before I went through one last fashion phase – flower patterns and jumpsuits. Ugh!
You Want To Interview Me?
It was truly a great surprise when the folks from the British website, Obsessory, contacted me to ask if I would like to do an interview with them for their blog.
Me? The non-fashionista? Do an interview with a fashion website?
Why not? I’m always up for a little fun!
