It was in with grunge, out with panty hose in the 1990s

When my retirement date was set for June 29, a fact I’m still having a difficult time getting my little brain around, my editor suggested I take a look back at the fashion trends I’d reported on during the past 32 years. Looking through photos taken since 1980 has been fun, although at times excruciating. Did I really feature that outfit in the paper, or worse yet, did I wear it? Yes and yes. There’s one thing fashion has proven to me: In time your eye gets used to a look and wham! You’re wearing it.
