    Thank you for a fun video! The velvet choker necklaces were also very, very popular in the 1970s . (Trust me! I was there! 😉 )

  2. Spare Change on August 29, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Great video!

    I was borne in the second half of the 20th century and have seen fashion being rehashed every decade….70s were thirties, 80s were forties, etc. waiting for the revolutionary look of the 21st century. The Chanel of this century. We may be seeing the beginning of a minimalist uniform era. The land fills can’t take much more. Fashion will be strictly an art form. Fabrics that keep the body cool as well as warm have been created already…

    LOVE this video!! Definitely going to stock up on the capris. 😍😍😍

  5. Diane R on August 29, 2019 at 2:56 pm

    Love the wide-legged shorts. Very forgiving. Most women carry a lot of weight in their thighs.

  6. Libby’s Journal on August 29, 2019 at 2:58 pm

    One of the really great things about a lot of these more classic pieces you can get them secondhand, which I adore so just grab some vintage pictures and put them on ,your phone and look for things sort of look like it as you go shopping.

  7. cutie π on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Wonderfully fascinating!

  8. Linda Weddle on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    It has also been said that Parisians wore the chokers in red to symbolized those who had been beheaded during the revolution.

  9. Matthew Mattocks on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    I’ve noticed that fake hair is becoming really popular for people with a lot of money. I hope natural textures stay in style, I’m not going to heat style my hair regularly again, I’m proud of my where my curls have gotten and i love wearing them natural a lot of the time. Hey

  10. Carol Hardy on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Fun video. Those pleated shorts were commoly called Dance shorts. You could tap or swing and not see anything indecent for the time. There’s a great rehearsal scene with Rita Hayworth and Fred Astaire with the chorus all in pleated dance shorts here… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XigQJCIKoU.

  11. Kendra veganbombshell on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Your hair looks fab like this!

  12. Mylove4beauty 114 on August 29, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Great Video!!

  13. A. Austin on August 29, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    Just FYI – capris ARE available BUT – they are of a modern style☹️ – they are low-waisted, very hip-hugging and in a lot of cases – slightly flaring up on the bottom – the total OPPOSITE from vintage look☹️ Speaking from a desperate experience of trying multiple pairs from multiple places. Ended up buying off eBay a true vintage which fitted 100%. Planning to sew a pair as well.

  14. Sheldon C Edward Thibault on August 29, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    Some agricultural supply stores will sell hole punchers used for leather materials and that sort. I’ve seen them sold there.

  15. Anna Harner on August 29, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    😮 who knew chokers were around that long?

  16. Rebecca Schadt on August 29, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    Here they both are if you want to check them out. Shes great if you like yoga. I hope you feel better.

  17. Sapphira van Doorn on August 29, 2019 at 3:04 pm

    I didn’t realise that those type of belts were popular back then! Definitely learned something new. I think the kind of earrings you are wearing in this video are also available in high street shops now, by the way 😊

  18. lisita1020 on August 29, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    Fabulous! Love all the suggestions. 💖

  19. Songbird Mozlover on August 29, 2019 at 3:08 pm

    Actually you can find chokers even being wore by both men and women in ancient times most likely for protection both from physical threats as well as spirits. This goes across so many different cultures

  20. honey toast on August 29, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    Just wanted to say, I’ve been subscribed to you for only a few months but I’ve been loving your videos. I’m from Australia (tassie to be precise) and honestly watching your videos feels like sitting and chatting with my best friend, plus your videos are so helpful and your style is so similar to mine. Thank you and love from little ol’ Tassie. 💖 xxx

  21. Katherine Hamar on August 29, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    ALMOST totally accurate! lol Marie Antoinette’s white gown WAS seen as scandalous, but because it was only reminiscent of undergarments of the day. It came to be called a "chemise a la reine" because of that, but it was in fact a full dress that she had ordered for the purpose of wearing at her little reproduction farm so she and her children could pretend to be "peasants". I would say the Edwardian blouse is probably more a descendant of the chemise a la reine than the tea dresses, which were actually quite structure, and had what was called a "sack back" like the french dresses of Marie’s time, but certainly the regency white lawn ballgown was inspired by her! Altogether love this video, I adore when history buffs all exchange research and information <3

  22. Beverley on August 29, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    How could anyone be rude to you!!😔💔

  23. Nic San to the chez on August 29, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    I love your style! So beautiful and graceful ❤

  24. Rebecca Schadt on August 29, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Hey I wanted to tell you I heard belly dancing is good for fibroids and if you wanted to ever try a video luscious belly dance for beginners is good I have it. I looked it up when I had ovarian cysts. I dont know if it would help but it’s fun and a great workout. Also, I dont know if you ever tried yoga but this site I use doyogawithme.com has 2 videos involving chakras and the 2nd one is supposed to deal with the female organs. They both are with the instructor fiji mcalpine and phenomenal. Those 2 are free but some arent.

  25. Brit & Patrick & Son Haven & Mullen & Mullen on August 29, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Audrey, so lovely! 🖤🖤🖤

  26. Diane R on August 29, 2019 at 3:16 pm

    Peasant blouses and skirts are long-lasting trends. Worthy investments.

  27. Brit & Patrick & Son Haven & Mullen & Mullen on August 29, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    I love certain Peasant tops, some I find tacky.

  28. Rebecca Schadt on August 29, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    Love your whole look!!!!!! Thanks for another great video! Hope your feeling better. By the way I don’t know if your into yoga but this website where they have some free videos doyogawithme.com has 2 videos https://www.doyogawithme.com/content/chakra-one-flow and especially this one https://www.doyogawithme.com/content/chakra-two-flow. Apparently they deal with your chakras and the second one corresponds to the female organs. It’s worth a shot if your into or open to yoga, both were great. Also one time when I was looking up stuff on ovarian cysts I came across a lady online has fibriods really bad and does belly dancing and says it helps alot. Anyway there is a video I have been doing that is good for beginners https://www.amazon.com/Luscious-Workout-Beginners-Beginner-instruction/dp/B0015FJYV0. It was available to stream free on youtube but then it was taken down so I had to buy it. But I think you can pay $5 to rent on the world of dance website. I always am looking for alternative ways to fix myself, I never have insurance lol!

  29. Diane R on August 29, 2019 at 3:18 pm

    Thanks for your research! Fascinating.

  30. Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel on August 29, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Hiya, I’m a new sub love your channel! You did really well for someone who didn’t study fashion history! I did, but am a little fuzzy so I might be slightly off on chokers which were fashionable in the Middle Ages (I think that’s the time period I’m thinking of- when Da Vinci was around) w/ the wealthy. Peasant style blouses defo go back to ancient times, kept popping up in various folk costumes throughout history. Fun video! Have a lovely week! Jet 🧡🎸🎶⚡️ PS being a wee faery sized woman w/ a short waist, long legs (the opposite of “petite” sizing), low to mid rise hits @ my waist which is tiny as well- always punching holes in belts!😆

  31. MyFairSkinLatina on August 29, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    I remember the chokers were so popular in the nineties. I really love the way they look,. Great job on the video

  32. Diane R on August 29, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    I love capri-length and gauchos. Typically, one length fits everyone. Easy to please many customers. Sensible.

  33. NonStopParis on August 29, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    Add holes to a belt with a hammer and nail! It’s foolproof!

  34. MoonshineMadame on August 29, 2019 at 3:32 pm

    This was really nice! I especially enjoyed the history behind the items, it’s always amazing to see just how long something has actually been around!
    And I have to say, it’s really nice that you are talking so fast. It might sound weird but I find that quite refreshing in comparison to a lot of other YouTubers (who I still love!) who talk slowly so everyone can understand everything. I get that but actually listening to someone talking normally makes listening a lot easier!

  35. Julia on August 29, 2019 at 3:32 pm

    When you were talking about the uptake of the chemise or tea dress style, all I could think of was all the nanas who must have been appalled at the sight of all the girls swanning about in their “undergarments!”

  36. Vanessa Whitehead on August 29, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    This kids, is why you save your clothes, because they will come back in style. I still have stuff from the 80s, and a good thing too. I remember lying on my bed to zip my jeans, yep, because tight was in and that was before they started putting spandex material in jeans. And I had my mom’s mini dresses from the 60s. Wear what you want, don’t worry about whether it’s "in style" or not.

  37. Rebecca Schadt on August 29, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    I’ve so done that before with the scissors and knife on belts!! Lol

  38. Diane R on August 29, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    An empire waistline is the most forgiving for those with a large abdomen.

  39. Caroline Berthiaume on August 29, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Mary Tyler Moore

  40. onni504 on August 29, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Chokers actually go all the way back Rococo period.

  41. VintageVibesInModernTimes on August 29, 2019 at 3:39 pm

    People interested in the Marie Antoinette dress, Amber Butchard did a show called a Stich In Time you can watch on youtube about the history and why it was a scandal. Plus they remake the dress in period materials and practices!

  42. Rebecca Schadt on August 29, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    Such a great and informative video! Keep them coming!!!

  43. Cecilia coker on August 29, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    A hammer and nail work great for making new belt holes too!

  44. Vintage Kitty on August 29, 2019 at 3:42 pm

    LOVING the high waist-ed paints/shorts, so flattering on people. Also, the 80s/90s revival: I don’t think a lot of people realize the 80s copied the 40s.

  45. Raymond31923 on August 29, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    You are a picture of stunning beauty and elegant class!

  46. forfang39 on August 29, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    Yes please, more videos like this😍

  47. Brit & Patrick & Son Haven & Mullen & Mullen on August 29, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    @ 6:15 I love this style of shorts!!! 😍💛😍 Your’s look super cute, I adore Lgt Banana yellow!!! P. S. Love your look!!! Also, sorry people have been rude to you, I can’t imagine why.
    I never stopped wearing high waisted belts ☺️

  48. Destiel Mooselord on August 29, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    Love you and your videos !💘

  49. Diana M on August 29, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    I haven’t been able to find the high waisted shorts!! Also I miss satin vintage dresses. Much needed in my life

  50. Kel B on August 29, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    My boobs are too big for most types of clothes lol
