Live Like the 50's

It's not very often that I post the same entry to both of my blogs, but this article on the American Rockabilly community is fascinating from both a historical fashion and modern culture perspective, therefore I wanted to share it both here and on my sewing blog.

I had no idea that this culture existed, much less in such complete form. Looking at these photos, it's hard to believe the photographer didn't hop in a TARDIS and travel back in time.

While a lot could be written about the health of such a way of living (good or bad), I personally want to applaud the mindset of caring for our personal goods and making them last as long and well as they can. That's the way all of our ancestors lived for thousands of years, and we would do well to return to some of those practices.
