For a typical OMG I Am So Retro person, the present times are fantastic. We are truly living in the golden online era. I wasn’t born in the roaring twenties, the golden Hollywood 1950s, swinging sixties or floral 1970s. Thankfully for us modern vintage fanatics who were born a little too late, the current technology makes the good old times come alive again. Every now and then it occurs to me, that there is definitely a pattern in mentality when you’re a retro and Classic Hollywood fan nowadays. So I have created a little vintage & retro fan checklist. You know you’re a sucker for vintage & retro when…:
When you have a Vintage meets Present blog, the past meets present vibes pop up anywhere and anyplace. So here are some random vintage meets present thoughts on a random Monday night:
When you cannot find that amazing Classic Hollywood movie, because it’s so rare even Google can’t find it.
When you’re totally digging the vintage fashion style. But you realise it’s not a good idea to turn up at work like this:

When I say 1920s, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Party like it’s 1920-1929? Flapper girls, economic prosperity, jazz or the Harlem Renaissance? Or maybe all of them? For me it’s a combination of a lot of things. I remember watching the movie the Great Gatsby. Of course, my fascination for vintage made my vision a little but colored, but I loved that movie. Especially the way the roaring twenties atmosphere was recreated. After the 1950s and 1960s, the roaring twenties have a special place in my vintage heart. That’s why it was time to think about randon thoughts that would cross my mind if I had lived in that time period. Please note, just like the previous episode If I lived in the early 1900s, most of the time I am on the don’t-take-it-too-serious road. What would life be back then?
In a nutshell: I am a firm believer of Vintageology. In my opinion, knowledge about life(style) of the bygone days really adds (more) value to my present life. Vintageology is good for your mental health, mind and your knowledge level rises and rises. I’ll explain it in a bit. Wait for it.
If you’ve read my “About Me” page, you know that I like to blog about the best and positive aspects of the past without forgetting that I am living in the present and ofcourse I have my frequent trips to Homemade Inspiration town. Sounds like a mouth full right? So how does that look like in real life? Have a peek:
Every now and then I take the Oriental Spice part of my blog literally.
