When I was a fashion editor - 80's style

This is one of my old fashion styling shoots from the 80's 
and I remember it so well like it was only yesterday.
This was one shot of many for a television commercial for Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre.  
This beautiful model was visiting Australia from the U.S.A. and I remember using her for quite a few jobs, however, I can't remember her name,  maybe you know her?  I dressed her in a long black pleated taffeta skirt and a white organza shirt, which was to die for! the shirt was adorned with little tiny organza flowers.  (You know I have been in love with flowers for a very long time)
and just look at those puffed sleeves!! 

The hair, the jewels......Soooooo 80's What do you think? Do you remember?

Happy Friday Everyone,

Both styles are inspirational and unique beyond anything I have seen in years. What a gift and blessing you are to those of us who follow you. Thank you for sharing with those of us who struggle to express the beauty we see in our lives. You make it come alive for all of us. Namasta!
