If you’re not familiar with the hit sitcom and spin-off of The Cosby Show, A Different World then what rock have you been hiding under?

A different world followed Bill Cosby’s daughter Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet) as she ventured off to a historically black college…Hillman College. This show focused on her and the lives of many other students. This show aired way before I was born, but I always find myself relating to many of the women. I related mostly to their sense of fashion.

To be completely honest A Different World is one of the reasons why I started getting into Vintage clothing. This show has been a huge inspiration for my current wardrobe.

Unfortunately they took A Different World off of Netflix . (I hope they bring it back), but you can still catch a few episodes here and there on TV One. If you’re able to, please do me a favor mute the TV and just look at what they were wearing for a full episode. You’ll be amazed by what you see and get a true glance of 80’s and 90’s fashion.

I decided to challenge myself and see how well I could recreate and update the looks of 5 of my absolute favorite characters. I challenged myself more, by working with what I already had in my closet. Like I said before this show was a major influence for my current wardrobe, so I wanted to prove that to myself.

Denise also had a very chill style about her. It was almost effortless, but yet it made a statement. She wore loose fitting clothes, high wasted pants, dark or neutral clothing, and vests.

I am a 25 year old from 219, Indiana. I love shopping for pieces that are different and that I know nobody else will have! But one thing I hate about shopping is going broke doing so. Throughout the years of me working in retail, I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks for saving LOTS of money when shopping. I also go against trends by Vintage shopping. I find pieces that I can pair together to create works of art. You can call me a penny pincher, but I’ll look BOMB while pinching my pennies :)
