Let's pretend it's 1950.

No really. Besides the whole smiley perfect housewife thing, which I would definitely have to be heavily medicated to achieve any aspect of, I think that women had a class and glamour that is currently few and far between. After looking through old found photographs and vintage Vogue pages, what we now consider glamourous somehow seems cheapened. I don't know if maybe it's because it's less honest or we've gotten the definition turned around somehow, but it's just not the same. I feel like then glamour was more about poise and the essence of the girl, and now it's more about what she's wearing and how expensive it looks. I think back then more women had pride in just being a woman. Not in what we were allowed to do, what rights we had, but just being female. That in itself was something to be confident about, to make you feel empowered. Today women are so busy thinking of all the things they don't like about themselves and pointing out their wrongs that it's no wonder we can't carry ourselves with that kind of confidence and poise. So stop it. Love who you are. Radiate that beauty and you WILL be beautiful. Go be glamourous for god's sake.

Just in case you decide to make the splurge to look the part, Timeless Vixen carries some of the most beautiful vintage dresses in amazing condition. It's really a good thing I literally don't have the money to, or I would be buying out half the store. You know, maybe we should all just go back to wearing clothes this fabulous.

  2. I completely agree with you. We all need some old fashion in our lives!
