A Different World Challenge


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.

Winifred “Freddie” Brooks (Cree Summers)


Freddie was a free spirit. She often wore earthy tones, loose fitting clothes, denim, and lots of fringes.


Lena James (Jada Pinkett)


Lena was very eccentric when it came to her outfit choices. She wore bright colors, ripped jeans, hats, crop tops, and body suits.



Kimberly Reese (Charnele Brown)



Kim had a very chill and laid back style. She often wore long loose skirts with fitted tops, suit jackets, and long fitted dresses.




Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet)


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 rep the 219, Indiana. I'm a wardrobe stylist and owner of Vintage By. B. 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 :)
