Golden Girl Chic- Unexpected inspiration from 3 girls gone wild in Miami

YOU ARE GOLDEN - Miami Beach Chic

Okay, I admit it— I love the Golden Girls! And I’ll tell you something, my heart is true, I’m a pal, AND a confidante!!

I seem to have developed a pattern of turning to it around midnight on weeknights that I’m home; inevitably it will be either on hallmark channel, We, or Oxygen, and I can’t seem to get enough of Sophia Petrillo, Dorothy, slutty Blanche, and my favorite, St Olaf’s Rose (Or Betty White)

In watching, I’ve realized in a weird way, that the show really was  ahead of it’s time it was in a lot of unexpected ways– and you would never think this off the bat, but you can actually get inspired by their fashion. Before you scoff, trust me- It’s true.

Before Gossip Girl, Sex and the city, and the L word, these white haired beauties were pushing boundaries. The original housewives, make that widows of Miami. Blanche is the sexy empowered Samantha, Betty is goody two shoes Charlotte, and I guess that would make Bea Arthur…. SJP—:)

Those girls have their daily talks over coffee and food at the cafe, these girls had cheese cake in their kitchen, they had escapades, and these women have more boyfriends then most single women in their early 60’s.

Yes, these trailblazers were light years ahead of their time in all aspects. Think Miami chic + 50 years—

Gray hair, long floral skirts, over-sized boyfriend blazers, gold, lame accents, and even bow-ties worn in unexpected ways. And these days, with 60 being the new 40, it just proves that even in your twilight years you can be chic and stylish- And that’s golden….
