This woman lives every day like it’s 1958

I'm envious of her delusion - it's fun and under control. I like the way men dressed in the 50s, maybe I'll start being the male version of her.

She looks great in that style, and the house does look like a real middle class home from the era, not something styled to be an overly "tasteful" recreation of the era. My only question - do they have air conditioning? While window units were first available in 1945 they were obviously expensive new technology; I don't think the kind of person who owned that house in the era could afford AC until the mid to late 60's.

1958: The worst post-WWII recession up to that point; the first full year of the Edsel (introduced as a '58 late fall of '57). Some of the ugliest cars imaginable from other makers---the last packard (really a Studebaker with ugly add-ons), the chrome riddled Olds and Buicks.

This is not a lovely and innocuous story. The woman has mental issues. It's not like this is her hobby that she does on weekends. She lives this way 24/7. Social Services should kick her door down and take her poor son away. She should be in a mental hospital, not inflicting her delusions of grandeur on society.

Marilyn Monroe wore size 14 dresses, so people are shocked to learn she averaged 120 pounds with a 25 - 27 inch waist. Modern day vanity sizing would put her at a size 6 - 8.

Also, sewing pattern companies who cater to the cosplayer market have had to alter their retro design reproductions to fit the “modern American woman.” Anyone who has worked at a vintage clothing store in the past few decades probably knows the terror of the tattooed female customer with a side-cut shopping for a “rockabilly“ dress.

[quote]Those rockabilly people have been doing that for years.

True, and I find the whole vintage lifestyle rockabilly thing to be creepy. I was briefly friends with a woman who I gave my grandmother's 1930s art nouveau necklace to, because she dressed in 1930s and 1940s vintage wear, then about a year later discovered she and her husband had gotten banned from a bunch of vintage forums because they were literal Nazis. They collected bootleg Nazi paraphernalia and had tried to recruit people into an anti-Jewish group they'd become part of.

While reading the threads about what they had done, I ran across a dozen men who said they refused to let their wives use modern appliances because "there were no washing machines in the 1940s," they had to use those old style ringers and a tub. They'd say that about all sorts of appliances. Meanwhile, they were typin' on the ol' Internet.

No sign of anyone on those boards who wasn't white and straight and rightwing. So, so creepy.
