Fashion Icons: I Never Liked Darrin.

There are many fashion icons the world agrees on. 
They come up in the annals of fashion time and time again.

I have an unlikely name I would like to add to the list. 
She was my fashion icon when I was but a child.
To me, she is Old School Carrie or The OGFI (Original Gangster Fashion Icon)

I loved Samantha Stephens on Bewitched
I thought she was the hippest mom alive. 
She always looked amazing even as Endora, Dr. Bombay and Serena 
wreaked havoc around her. 
And I'll now confess, I never much liked her husband Darrin. 
I thought he was an ass.


For me....Samantha was IT. The cat's proverbial meow.
See if you agree.







And some color...

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is really cool...especially this post. In designing, I find that my best inspirations comes from the fashion from decades beyond my age and this post shows exactly that. I can look at fashion from the past and recreate it for me in my day. I will be following your blog. Hope you do the same. :-)

  23. Just finished watching re-runs of Bewitched - with the old and the new (later) Darrin. First one was way better IMO. Scriptwriters for series after the second Darrin joined were crap. Some really poor shows/plots. Samantha redeemed them mostly, with great outfits to boot!
