I remember growing up in the 80’s playing with Paper Dolls that my nanny made me and I remember finding a CD collection of 50’s and 60’s music….yes, CD’s….my nanny had bought one of those collections they advertise. Before I had my own huge collection of music, I would play these CD’s and dance along. I always found music such as “Rock around the clock” to be fun and full of energy. In junior high, we had 50’s day once and I actually wore some clothes from the 50’s along with an old class ring on the necklace. I loved wearing my hair in a high ponytail with the little curly ribbon dangling off it and the big skirt that felt like it was meant for dancing in. I would often think of what it would have been like to be living back then. I’ve always been a girly girl who wore dresses and skirts to be comfortable instead of pants so the dress code would have been wonderful to me.
Now, I’m older and I like the time period I was born in just fine now…although the world is no where near perfect and never will be. BUT I have a special place in my heart for this time period when I was not even thought of yet….and I love looking at the vintage photos they had in catalogs back then. I also LOVE the ones where the women have some funny little saying…but I don’t own any of them. *Hint, Hint* for any one of my family and friends reading this. Might be a good gift idea! 😉
I wanted to share some vintage photos I found online that I absolutely loved and thought others might like as well!
