I first saw 'Time Warp Wives', by chance back in 2008. I had taken a day off as I was feeling poorly and spent it lounging in bed watching mindless TV, bored with what I was watching, I turned over to Channel 4 (probably hoping for Come Dine With Me) just as this show was starting, and I was mesmerized.
It's a short documentary, which follows four women who've all chosen to turn their backs on the modern day and embrace wholeheartedly their love of the past by immersing themselves in their chosen eras. Joanne the 50s housewife (more famously known as singer Lola Lamour) and her friend Diane who is also a 40s/50s housewife, Debbie a 1930s housewife and Sammi, the immaculately coiffed 40s lover. Their homes are amazing and their clothes are immaculate (I've Pinned Lola Lamour's wardrobe to death!) and their conviction and dedication to the past has to be admired.
It sounds daft, but watching it back then, was a 'light bulb' moment, it dawned on me that I was not alone in my love of the past. I realised there were other people out there who felt the same way as I did and were brave enough to show the world every day just how much they loved their chosen era. It pushed me that step further forward in gaining the confidence to dress how I truly wanted to and helped me battle the 'confidence crises' I used to have (still, do, occasionally) a short while after leaving the house!
So I was delighted today when I finally found it was back on YouTube so that I could share it with you all! Watch it while you can as it may not be around for long.
