All is relative

"Fashion is more usually a gentle progression of revisited ideas." -Bruce Oldfield.

Those are the words to define what encompasses our vintage desires. Below we can see the ways of relativity as we travel through the decades and revisit the past. Generally a nice forty-year difference in some very familiar fashion items!

1920s- T-Strap Shoes (purple), 1960s- T-Strap Shoes (Black & Mustard)

1930s Day Dress Patterns, 1970s Day Dress

1940s 2-button swing coat(black), 1980s 2-button swing coat (red)

1950s Crop Top, 1990s Crop Top

I love when things like this are traceable, fashion forecasting isn't that hard now is it?


  1. I love the both pairs of the shoes!!!

  2. Great post!
    It's cool to see how one decade of fashion borrows styles and looks for another years later.
    I love those shoes, I adore t-straps.

  3. Very fun post, sweetie! I wish that more of the 40s and 50s styles would make a comeback in this day and age, don't you? It would so much fun to be able to readily - if only for a season or two - find more modern pieces in thoroughly vintage cuts. (A girl can dream, can't she? ;D)

    Big hugs & joyful Monday wishes,
