Vintage lifestyle is more popular than ever these days. And rightly so. A lot of times the focus is on heydays of vintage Hollywood and fashion: the 1950s and 1960s. And again…rightly so, because – in my opinion – those were the peak days of feminine fashion. Also, focussing on the positive things of the old days is always a good idea.
On this blog you see a lot of my fascination for the 50s and 60s, but also frequent sidesteps to the other eras. Remember the vintage fashion serie?
Put that egg on your face
If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you’ve probably noticed that I received a very interesting birthday present. A book with articles and recipes of the 1930s. A time where the dresses were very long with an open back, because in the 1930s sunbathing became popular and ofcourse you had to show off your tanned back. Want a beautiful face? Put an egg on it. Also as a real salmon fan I want to know some good old salmon recipes of the 1930s. Let’s not forget to have a healthy lifestyle: Who needs the gym? Housework is the ultimate workout! You can imagine that in a time without the luxury of a dishwasher or washing machine….
So forget the glamours, marie claires, cosmopolitans and every other lifestyle magazine of the present: It’s time to turn back the clock 85 years. Below you can see a few excerpts of the book: What every woman should know. Lifestyle lessons of the 1930s. Vintage 1930s meet the present!
