Style Icon: Denise Huxtable



I wanted to be Denise Huxtable, but she was so cool, I knew it probably wasn't going to happen.


"The Cosby Show" was watched regularly in my household, and Denise was my favorite. She was the clear bohemian of the Huxtable bunch. She always walked to the beat of her own drum. (And it was quite the fabulous beat.)


Her taste was kind of typical '80s at the beginning of the show, but as she got older, she became more amazing. You know real-life Lisa Bonet had to have some say in that wardrobe. It's just so artistic, awesome and odd.


You gotta love a girl who loves hats. I mean, you just gotta. 



So I loved "The Cosby Show," but I loved, loved, loved "A Different World," it's spinoff about Denise.She went to a historically black college and made friends and struggled with her studies. She was only on the show for a year or so, but it spread its wings and flew off on its own and was the best

So to conclude, "A Different World" is the best, "The Cosby Show" is the second best, and Denise Huxtable is in a style league of her own.

I hated that character, I though she was dry and uninteresting but her choice in fashion was pretty cool.

The 80's had some great bohemian style. I kinda miss it. Denise was one of the best.

omg I loved A Different World! I always liked it better than The Cosby Show. I love this post. I'm happy there is another blogger out there old enough to have watched these shows.

Lisa Bonet is so pretty. She was married to Lenny Kravitz for a while and they were pretty much the best looking couple of all time.

I grew up watching both of those shows, too - and loved Denise's dynamic, creative, artsy style, too. I would still, to this day, totally wear the green ensemble she's sporting in the photos above.

Thank you very much for your blog comment today (that poem is immensely fitting for sure, it was sweet of you to share the link) - have a relaxing, lovely evening.

♥ Jessica

Ahh, the lovely 80's! We wore fully clothed and wore crazy hair but somehow people like Liza and her character made it look cool ans stylish!

Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment so I knew you had popped by.
I loved reading your post about FL and the HG, looks like a lot of fun.
Oh and your polka dot shoes are just fabulous!
If you do visit the UK then Lacock is definitely worth a day trip.

Yeah, A Different World is one of my favorite shows. Of. All. Time. For reals. I wanted to be Dwayne Wayne. OK, not really, but I did want his flip glasses.
