I was reading an article that speaks about Ditta Von Tyssen and I know the pinup style doesn’t fit me well. I mostly prefer the 20s , its fashion and the flapper era. But at times, I can also feel that I would why not could be living in the 1900s, those times filled with art, culture, expeditions and marvelous perfume creations.
So, I was thinking why not write about this as a poll? This is a great way to know your likes, what times you really love most and perhaps seeing these images those who wonder will finally get an idea of what times they really feel to fit in.
So here are some images, randomly selected. Just choose one (or two) that will let us know what times, what old and not so old times you really love.
I made a selection starting with the 1900s. I could go further back but perhaps this will be posted on another article, only to show a certain time, let’s say the Victorian and Edwardian era.
So, here are the pictures. Chose the one or two photos that make you feel good as if you were precisely in the photo.
Let’s start with 1800s
(btw, she reminds me of Madonna)
Make your choice!
