    Casual elegance at its best. Nostalgia of past times. Black and white always my favorite for pictures or movies.

    Love the vintage photos you put up! You actually inspired me to add a vintage photo page to my website. I have photos of my family from the 1800′s all the way up to the 1980′s.

    I love black and white photography! And including the environment in their portrait gives the whole photo a feel for the people and the it.

    She’s dressed so well! 80 years ago… I wonder if you saw Riccione and how people dress there now. I don’t know if you would like it, but there’re beautiful stores there.

    Effortless glam & dapper-ness.

    This is pure elegance and fun for me, thank you Coco Chanel, for showing people that women could dress like this and still be women. I love it, in fact I think the 30s style suits me very much with my big nose, and my petite figure. It’s amazing, a red lipstick with that outfit, and you look incredible.

    thank you for this!!!

    An innocent moment before the next twelve years of mass death and unprecedented destruction ushering the world into the Atomic Age. No one has yet mentioned that so I guess I will.

    That’s incredible! When you look at this picture, you can’t imagine the facism leads Italy at this time and Hitler wins the Ă©lections in Germany. This lovely couple looks like out of the reality…

    This photo is so beautiful, and the funny thing is I always find it hard to imagine that people in these times did live their life in colour!

    Absolutely amazing. BUTTONS up the side of her trousers (or are they lounging pyjamas). His shoes, EVERYTHING. I swoon!

    There is something so captivating about black and white photography..It’s classy and timeless. My latest post is also dedicated to b&w imagery..but a contemporary one.

    Love black and white. There is an Australian photography magazine called black and white and I can look at it for ages.

    People were so skinny back then. Gosh. Love this pic. Love black and white. It rocks.

    Oh my Gosh, she’s so heavenly in her dress, and he’s both elegant and casual with his shirt and trousers!

    Yes, I too was surprised by how few commenters noted the fragile historical moment. Thanks, Scott Hanlon. And, yes, her dress is wonderfully “modern.”

    Beautifull photo, 1933 the year that Hitler proclaim that hell was about to start, this couple was probably in a different set up a year later, the photo is like a gate in time because give us a certain paradoxal nostalgia, I rather be now than there but love the sense of style.

    Love the gorgeous vintage dress as well as the hair and make up. Notice how the lipstick still looks amazing even in black and white?

    Ah, back when people were thin.


    August 1, 2013 at 10:12 am

    This photograph is gorgeous. Did they know what near-divine style they had? The 1930s is my most beloved time for style.

    This picture does show the elegance of the 1930′s. Art Deco was at it’s peak and everything was very over the top and elegant. That woman is simply beautiful.
