100 Years of Fashion

I am in love with this video. It is so fun and clever!

 

What is your favorite decade/fashion? Which era would you love to live in?
I would choose the...

20s

 30s

40s

and 50s

Imagine having so many decades in a row with perfect fashion. Sigh...

Vintage fashion is my favorite. Sometimes, I even wonder whether I've been placed in the 21st century by mistake. I wish I was one of the girls in the picture!
(sorry I'm rambling)
Anyway, you blog is marvey and your pictures are great, just letting you know :)
Love, Maria

OH HOW I LOVE THIS POST!!!

And it is always so nice to see you come by to visit sweet SUNSHINE!!! Oh dear one, I so know the feeling of being SO BUSY with the job that all the creativity time gets squeezed out. I had been feeling like this last week especially. But I was gently reminded by a colleague that we are all in the same STRESSFUL situation, that had really discouraged me. Teaching is WONDERFUL, but with budget cuts and more to do, it makes it a horrible experience at times. EVEN THE CREATIVITY of teaching has been squeezed to be very hard to reach. BUT somehow, I have found to at least sell some of my art that I already have...but I am now itching to create new ideas because my Etsy is starting to feel more comfortable. Last week, I FREAKED OUT because I was wondering how I would manage my busy school week with this new venture. But that is what weekends are for: TO FIGURE IT OUT and make it run smoother!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT; you are a constant friend and I so appreciate that. I SEND YOU MY WELL-WISHES and love and may you find a moment to enjoy what YOU LOVE!!! Anita

The video made me smile.
Darling, happy happy happy birthday!!! I hope you had a lovely one! I can't wait to see pictures!:)
Tell me more about the new job! I adore how good you are at accepting change. It's inspiring, and it makes me smile.
My week was very busy, but my weekend has been relatively slow. My mom is here. My heart is happy.



LOVE!

Kavery said...

Nicely done video. And aren't we lucky to have so many decades to choose from?

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

Darn, I can't watch the video at work :( But it sounds really interesting!

I would pick either the 50s or 20s. I used to be completely obsessed with 50s style, but the 20s has the solo charleston and flappers so now it's too hard to choose between them!

Wida said...

It is so fun and clever!! It must've taken them forever to make it perfect!

About Last Weekend said...

Love the fashion of the fifties but would have been a tough time for women to get ahead I think...

Punctuation Mark said...

i love that video!!! so cool!

Madeleine Roberts said...

That video is so cute. Hmm my favorite decade for fashion? That is such a hard question. I love them all for different reasons but I guess I span between 50s and early 60s. I love that whole Mad Men style. But then to contradict myself I also love the late 60s and early 70s too.

The 50s remain my favourite decade. I think style was synonym with fashion more than in any other period.

Great Video! I'm sure it was fun to do as much as it is for us to watch.

I love those eras too up to the 60's. And I am actually working on my project with that same concept! :) Ah the nostalgia... I often wonder what it would've been like to live in those times.
