What I wouldn't do to have been alive to see one of the original shows of the Ziegfeld Follies!
What stunning costumes and attention to detail

Sofia Coppola Vogue

WHAT a cover the Vogue Italia from 1992 is, it doesn't look dated, and she looks like she's been painted by one of the Renaissance artists

Vogue Paris spread, fun way to cram in lots of detail, I love her aesthetic, she knows what she likes, and it's reflected in her films and what she wears, fashion is fleeting, style is eternal

Bill you Murray me?

Bill Murray nailed it! The cheesy actor's head shot reminded me so much of Tobias Funke's set from Arrested Development:

Just when the internet couldn't love Bill Murray enough, he goes and adds that gem to the collection!

Jazz Age

Nostalgia for a time one never knew

The hair, make-up and style, of everything! attention to detail

The actresses mysterious, not sharing absolutely every detail about themselves on social media

Here is some music to enjoy dancing to!

The portraits, never to look dated, merely a glimpse to the past

The dresses, such finery!

Dance halls full swing! Behind your local Speakeasy
Dancing until the dawn!
I am in love with the picture below! 
Ladies finding a cab home after a night of debauchery!

Canberra even happens to have its own Speakeasy
 the atmosphere and attention to detail always being marvellous! 
A bar called Molly!

and of course the book that captured the spirit of it all, The Great Gatsby

Nostalgia for the past is a good thing in my mind, if we forget and move on, these things will forever be lost to the passage of time
