Things From The 1930s-1950s We Should Totally Bring Back
♡:: Loose pin curls as seen on old Hollywood beauties such as Veronica Lake, Vivien Leigh, Rita Hayworth, Diana Dors, and Lauren Bacall.
♡:: Intricately decorated hats worn to the side of one’s head.
♡:: Fur stoles like the ones worn by Marilyn Monroe to the premiere of How To Marry A Millionaire.
♡:: The casual wearing of satin and lace gloves to formal events and hell— informal ones, too.
♡:: The use of British phrases and words by Americans— such as mustn’t and fancy.
♡:: The iconic Chanel tweed suits that fell out of the average population’s fashion long ago.
♡:: The teaching of the Transatlantic accent in schools.
♡:: Suits with jackets that had thin, but defining shoulder pads— as seen on the likes of Lauren Bacall in To Have And To Have Not.
♡:: Noir red lipstick.
♡:: Witty hints towards sexual innuendo as opposed to the blatant, boring overtness heard in songs and on television. Word play is so much more exciting.
♡:: Going out for tea.
♡:: Evening gowns.
Things From The 1930s-1950s We Should Leave Behind
♡:: Freakin’ racism.
♡:: Wife beating. And the infamous “wife beater” tanks.
♡:: Pancaking foundation and concealer on.
♡:: Hideous patterns that can be seen on your great-grandmother’s carpeting and curtains.
♡:: Attaching suspenders to high-waisted pants.
♡:: Plucking the ever-loving crap out of one’s eyebrows.
♡:: Separating your eyelashes with a tiny pin.
♡:: Whitewashing in movies— and in general, for that matter.
♡:: Propeller beanies that make you look like an infant birthed by peasants from the olden days.
