    I’m definitely a 1950s girl. It suits me down to the ground.

    1950s! I’ve always wished that I could’ve lived through that decade.

    I like the femininity of the 30s, especially the late 30s. But I do like some of the structure of the 40s

    We avoided the wedding world conception of “vintage” and went with a more heyday of swing emphasis with a lot of mid 40s music, my dresses were 50s and 30s influenced. We chose musicians and dancers that were prevalent in the late 30s through early 50s, we only chose one modern dancer, but she is known for being one of the experts of Bal so we felt she fit.

    1930s all the way. It’s pure Jean Halow-esque glamour. Bias cut gowns, wavy hair, beautiful headpieces… sigh.

    30’s and 40’s for the glamour aspect. The 50’s was too much in the way of housedresses (fuller skirts,belted waists) and too much practicality.

      THIS was not attractive. (50’s)

      THIS,was. (40’s)

    For clothes the 40’s but for furnature and decor maybe the 20’s or 30’s because I kinda like art deco.

    It’s a tie for the 40s and 50s. I love the nipped-in waists and full skirts of the 50s, though. The 20s are fabulous, too, but I just don’t have the right body type to rock that style.

    I’m all over the place. I like the 20’s and 30’s for their architecture and design. I love old art deco buildings. I love the 40’s and 50’s for the fashion and hair and makeup, and the 50’s for interior design. I am a HUGE fan of mid-century modern and danish interior design. I love the 60’s for the 60s Mod look.

    Then, if we’re counting music and movies…. pretty much every decade from the 20’s until now for different reasons.

    I would say that the 50s probably wins the majority though. I really like the dresses with the full-skirts and natural waists. I find that that style is very flattering on me.

    @ItWasntMe: I agree to disagree. 🙂 I love those dresses from the 50s.
