Why do I love golden the age so much? Maybe because of Jazz, maybe because of those amazing illustrations styles, or maybe because of the elegant attitudes of the times. But the biggest reason is flapper style. I am not really good at dancing, but it won't stop me loving flapper dancing dress. Chic, delicate and amazing details( of course it is a little bit heavy as well...) Also, it is the most classic type of flapper dress which always appears in the movies. Recently "The Artist" takes the dancing dress trend back. Shall we have a 20s style party? That will be so lovely!
I find myself often being moved by films set in a classical era, somehow we are all escapists in many way be it threw books or film. We want to be taken to another time or another era because it really is a different world, where the thinking, acting and feeling is different. If people ask me what is the era I love the most then I would say 1920s Paris. It seems as if many talents of all walks of life germinated in this one region during this time. If you could imagine another time and place where you had to choose to live where would it be? We are comfortable in modern society, well, the ones fortunate enough to live in a developed places such as Europe, UK, the US e.t.c To name a few. But even so with this comfort comes great complexity which takes away piece of mind. Since I was a child would always think to myself "Times were more simple yet more fun, people had more control of their minds and lives".
Still, we live in exiting times. There are many changes which have happened and more to come, but most of all we have a Index of a Long human history to look back upon. This is very amazing when you think about it, we have the past at our fingertips. To simply see the past I simply need to pick up a Book, watch a film, Surf the Internet where the content is endless e.t.c Technology then has provided us with a means of time travel.
So again, where would you go if you can choose to back in time and place? It has to have special meaning to you , a time and place that moves you.
