We Will Never be as Stylish as We Used to Be…

My children often like to tease me for having an old fashioned taste in clothes and style, and I keep telling them that it's not necessarily a bad thing. If you ask me, the style and beauty of the past are immortal, and will stand the test of time, always coming back. Just take a look at these pictures, from the celebrities of the past to the simple people in the street, they are proof that people back then had a great sense of style.
