Happy 2010: A New Year & Decade

New Year's Eve is always such a special ocassion that one needs to look dapper and sleek throughout this night. And for key moments in our lives like the end of the 00s and start of the 10s, there's nothing that can beat the elegance and class of a tuxedo. Below a photo taken back in 1979 at some club in Paris that shows the power of a tuxedo, notice this one's jacket has a "mosaic" pattern on it.

This year New Year's Eve is a "milestone", since it's not only the end of another year, it's the end of a decade, the 00s. A decade which will be remembered by all the significant events that happened in history, the evolution of fashion (the constant revival of trends from previous decades), and of course our own personal history. The last year of the 00s, 2009, proved to be quite a challenge due to the circumstances in the global economy, fashion wasn't exempt, yet it appears somehow that we've all excelled this challenge and look forward to the future with optimism and perseverance.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you, my readers, for your support throughout this year, and tell you that without you this blog wouldn't be what it is today. Your feedback and comments within this last year have been of great importance and help to me. I can't go on without saying that it has been during 2009, that Retro Vintage Mod Style has experienced an amazing and unexpected growth, and that I'm really thankful to all of you for making this possible.

On the eve of a new decade and year, I would like to wish you and your loved ones the best for the 10s and 2010; may all your dreams and goals be fulfilled, may your life be filled with happiness, peace, and love, and last but not least, may you have lots of stylish outfits that channel the great styles and style icons of previous decades.

And like ABBA sang 30 years ago in 1979, Happy New Year!

I wish you the same and thanks for the wishes!

I know! It's quite bad that elegance has become a bit relaxed in the last couple of years...but well we can always organize a Tuxedo party ;)

ABBA is one of those ageless classics..thanks for this wonderful video. Plus it's so fun to peek at their outfits..yeah, they're dated, but somehow, so interesting and desirable.However,t hat back suit is something that will always be just as sleek and spiffy as the day it was made. Fabulous post, and happy new year to you too!

Thanks for your comments and following! ABBA may have some "kitsch" outfits, yet their songs are part of Pop Culture and we've all listened to them..."Happy New Year" is just one of those "classic" songs for NYE.

The tuxedo is awesome I agree.

Best wishes to you Rebecca, Maddy, and Alec!
