Here at Double Denim Days we celebrate everything that rocked in the '80s & '90s.
The TOYS rocked. The FASHION rocked. The CARTOONS, TV SHOWS & MOVIES? Oh yeah they rocked. And what about the MUSIC? Holy rock lobster the music rocked! Don't even get me started on the hair...
This is the place where you can party like it's (1980 -) 1999.
So pull on your stone-wash Levis, tuck in your Esprit T-shirt, and - please - don't be shy about throwing that bedazzled denim jacket on top. Cause that's exactly how we rock &/or roll here at Double Denim Days.
Can't quite remember how to bring that double denim look together? No problem!
We've put together a little Double Denim 101, especially for you - featuring '80s one-hit-wonder, page 3 girl, and all round foxy lady - Ms Samantha Fox...
DENIM up top + DENIM downstairs = DOUBLE DENIM stylin'
So what can you expect from Double Denim Days?
Hopefully there's plenty of those 'oh my gawwd, I totally forgot about that amazing thing that is just so amazing!' moments. We're based in sunny Brisbane QLD, so Aussies might find a few extra sprinklings of gold dust just for them.
Our regular features include nods to all the popular culture gems we love to look back on. We're big on Fashion here at DDD, and we know you are too. We've got you sorted with '80s & '90s Fashion Fixes each month, and we throw in a few 1-Minute Fashion Fixes as well - just to keep you going 'cause we're lovely like that.
We celebrate our Masters of Music each month, as well as the best Movie Moments of the '80s & '90s - of which there are so many. Every now & then we'll knock off early on a Friday and see what kind of flashbacks we can conjure up before we start hitting the turps and it all turns a little bit funky.
Got any great memories of camping out in front of the tele? On The Box will probably be your thing then. Here you could find anything from your fave angsty drama to the best sitcoms of the '80s & '90s, and of course all of those great cartoons we grew up watching.
Everyone loves a 'best of' list, and we're not about to rain on anyone's parade. Our Top 10 (+ 1) posts could count down anything from Versace's 10 (+ 1) Best Bedazzled Bustiers (we're REALLY big on alliteration too, in case you missed it) to the best 10 (+ 1) board games we used to play. You know the ones. We'd crowd around the dining room table and play until someone threw a hissy fit after landing on Park Lane that had eleventy-seventy hotels parked on it.
Our Spotlight On features delve a little deeper into whatever we've plonked down underneath that spotlight, and we always round out each month by digging up and brushing off our latest Time Capsule. It is our hope that by immersing you guys in a singular moment in time you get a flood of wonderful memories come back, possibly even some to haunt you as well 'cause we're kinda sick like that.
Oh! Almost forgot! If you're gonna hang out here, you've got to get on board with change. We celebrate every change of season with a fabulous look back at a great song with an even greater key change. It's a 1 + 1 = amazing kind of thing. Change is always good, and here at Double Denim Days change is VERY good.
When Principal McGee in Grease 2 announced to Rydell High that 'it's better to play with a group than with yourself', she wasn't only talking about band try-outs. Any frolic down memory lane is always going to be infinitely more fun with other people than on your own.
Everyone has their own experiences and tales to tell, so don't be shy about sharing a few of your own. And don't forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter below, where you'll hear what we're working on before anyone else & grab a few extra little tidbits along the way!
