30.5.09











Ah the 40's. The time where women wore dresses everyday and made sure their hair was perfect before they went out. When men went to work and were the breadwinners of the family. When kids went to the movies for 10 cents, did the jitterbug and went out for soda pops. 

The reason I dedicated an entire post to the 40's is because I am reading a book set during this time and find it very interesting. I'm not saying the 40's were perfect. There was a terrible war going on for most of it, women had fewer rights, technology was no were near what it is today and people weren't as tolerant with each other back then. However, it would be nice somehow to go back in time and experience the 40s.

  2. '40s styles were awsome. I just got found a vintage '40s hat that I love, so, coincidentally, I was just thinking about the '40s.
