You might find yourself at home thinking. Thinking about wanting to have a job. Or you find yourself working in the office although you know that this job is not for you. You’re back at home again thinking about your current situation which is so different than you what you dreamed of when you were 11. Or you’re out for dinner, celebrating present success but…what’s next? At home again, you’re scrolling through your social media newsfeed and you realise life is just bittersweet and for some people way too short. Which again stimulates you to think about your own life, hopes and dreams. Let’s add some more fuel to that Dreams engine.

You know those days when you feel like watching a good old serie that you already watched a hundred times? Well, last week I had one of those days. I felt like watching Sex and the city again. There were two things that went through my head while I was watching. And one thought was new…
- It’s all about the good and sincere friends.
- Samantha cracks me up again. Brain flash. Hmm…she reminds me of… Mae West!
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:

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.
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?
