1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly April 1987

1-Minute Fashion Fix | Dolly April 1987

I absolutely LOVE this editorial from 1987! Regular Dolly Magazine model, Belinda Riding, is at her sophisticated best here, championing the merits of the humble skirt. I can't pick a favourite, but if you were holding a gun to my head I suppose I could narrow it down to either the black bubble skirt paired with stripey socks, or the gorgeous white tulle tutu. Ooh la la...

Time Capsule | May 1990

There's something a little bit sad about the first half of 1990. We had to say goodbye to our dear dear friend, the '80s. The '80s had been like a cool aunty to us for exactly a decade. The '80s held our hands as we crossed the 4-lane highway of life to get to the sand pit on the other side. The '80s had held us close to her bosom... ok ok, I'll stop.

The point is... hah, actually there really is no point - which almost feels like the actual point of the '90s - as it actually was. It's all getting rather meta in here, so let's dive right in & crack that May 1990 Time Capsule open.
