Yesterday, I had a little rendez-vous with the 1950s again. I watched an episode of the I love Lucy show and it was hilarious. The I love Lucy show is a sitcom of the 50s starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The comedy serie is about Lucy Ricardo and her husband Ricky Ricardo. In every episode you can get a 25 minute peek in their marriage and (fictional) life. Thanks to our social media platform nowadays, that’s 25 minutes per episode – without ads. Thank you Youtube. Once again you make it possible to watch one (or two) season(s) in one night.
Last week, I bumped into a dance video of that popular moonwalk. Not performed by Michael Jackson this time, but by Bill Bailey. If you follow my facebook page, you probably have seen this movie. It made me think about other popular dance styles or typical dance moves that ruled the dancefloor back in time. Here are a few popular ones that lasted from the 1920s until the 1960s including some movies that captured those lovely vintage dance styles!
Men Special Alert.
So, I don’t really like moustaches and beards and I can not lie. However since it’s Movember, I can make an exception. Ofcourse the exception will be in Oriental Spice and some Chocolate style. Presenting to you: the 19th century moustache (and beard) special. Men: it’s time to make a statement here. Take your pick for this Movember.

Brace yourself. Halloween pictures will rule your social media timeline the coming week. And in this case you can blame me. However, you may just blame me for some good old vintage entertainment or for that cool, original Halloween look. October is ending, the nights are getting colder and everyone who celebrates Halloween is looking for some fabulous and scary Halloween outfits. If you’re looking for some inspiration, look back. And I mean look way back in history. Get inspired by these vintage Halloween pictures. Oh and pay attention. We go back and forth from nice vintage Halloween pictures, to pictures that are 10 times scarier than nowadays Halloween fashion. Happy (vintage) Halloween!
