Wouldn’t it be nice?

Hey there! So those of you who have been reading my posts from the start know how I go about; I take a random topic off the top of my head and if it feels right, I’ll try and write about it.  Today’s no exception and I had this thought come to mind “If I had to go back in time, to any era, what would I take with me?”

The first answer is easy.  Clothes.  I’m not going to go all hipster and say I’m a huge vintage clothes lover because although I love the style, I don’t have the time and funds to be really invested into it.  I do however appreciate how well they dressed back in the day.  I would probably pick one of those huge dresses, Pride and Prejudice style you know, with the puffy skirts and layers of fabric.  Then I’d go forward in time a bit and maybe snatch away some gorgeous 60s dresses and blouses just because that style is wearable today.

Half of those I own similar versions so….

Next thing I’d get is music.  It’s not something I can actually get or something which I can’t really find nowadays, but I would get the people from back in the day to try and come and speak to people today and explain to them how to make some great music.  Not that I don’t think we have good music today, but all my favourite songs are ones from the 80s or before so I’d love to get some great artists back with me and have them release new material just for me.

                                                    One of my favourite songs of all time!
I might also snatch a car or two, after all, vintage cars are worth a lot of money right?(As you may have gathered, my knowledge of cars is merely on the basis of “Wow that’s preeeety”) And I’m sure my boyfriend or my brother would love that, so yeah, I’d get a couple of cars with me, have the boys drool over them, and I’d just be their pretty passenger wearing a huge dress and listening to all the classic songs I love so much.

Before you guys think I’m crazy…(if there is actually anyone who managed to reach the end of this weird post and not die of boredom) I’m going to stop here. I’m sure I’ll think of other old stuff I’d want to get with me if did go back in time, but these would be the first on my list.  So please, if you know of someone who has a time machine, let this crazy girl know!
