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:

Put a vintage music filter on it

Rita Hayworth 1940s

What’s current life without some typical vintage meets present vibes? Vintage fashion and style are hotter than ever. When it comes to music, old has ofcourse always been gold. As long as I can remember, I grew up with classics of the old days and of course the popular 90s hits that now have become classics. Back then – as in: the 90s – I used the rewind button a lot. Mostly because I always scrolled back too much and then I had scroll forward again, while still missing the beginning of the song. 90s kids will understand the struggle. At the moment the repeat button makes my life a lot easier.

If I lived in the roaring twenties

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?

Before selfies were cool


first ever selfie

Remember the pre-selfie time a few years ago? The time when you asked someone else to make a picture of you with a good old (digital) camera. Or…the time when you used the self-timer button for delayed action shutter release to create those very professional and spontaneous pictures that still make you proud. “No this picture was not made by a professional. Shutter buttons for life.”  The shutter release button time is still going strong, because why wait for someone else to make a picture, when your shutter release button skills are still going strong.
