GRID | Time Machine

Meghan Doherty and I sat around this afternoon and created a fun little fantasy grid that consists of who we'd hang out with, where we'd hang out, and what we'd wear in our wildest dreams of each decade starting in the 20s. We'd LOVE to know your who's, what's and where's too!










1920s: Zelda Fitzerald, Chanel, Fingerless Driving Gloves ($79), 21.
1930s: Marlene Dietrich, Elsa Schiaparelli, Illesteva "Leonard" Sunglasses ($165), Grand Prix.
1940s: Katharine Hepburn, Women's Army Corp. standard issue, I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson ($30+), The Beverly Hills Hotel.
1950s: Jean Seberg, Lady Levi's, Dave Brubeck's Quartet, Vassar College.
1960s: Françoise Hardy, Yves Saint Laurent, Vans Since 1966, Carnaby Street, London.
1970s: Diane Keaton, Gucci, Gucci Portfolio ($500); Saturday Night Live's Studio 8H.
1980s: Kim Gordon, Ralph Lauren's women's collection, Swatch, The Roxy.
1990s: Sofia Coppola, Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis, Dr. Martens ($104), The Knitting Factory on Houston St.

Love this grid - especially the vintage Vassar pennant! I love old college pennants and am trying to find a chic way to display them. Great post, I really love your blog!

Such a creative idea. Now then, how could you miss my historic crush Lee Miller for the 1930s (when she was Man Ray's lover in Paris) or 1940s (when as a war photographer she took a bath in Hitler's tub).
And you must stop flirting so outrageously with Jenna Lyons!

Love this grid... and the first, naturally! I reblogged it on Tumblr at www.femmeinnest.tumblr.com. Let me know if there is an original tumblr link I could use instead! :) Looking forward to more!

Fantastic. I'm definitely 50s ... no 40s ... I think the joy of 2012 is having so many fantastic things and styles to inspire us.

Lovely! I would have put Haddley (hemmingway's wife then) in the 1920's and perhaps ANais Nin in the 1930's, a great retrospective as well as something to contemplate. Thanks

Another vote for Lee Miller in the 30's here, too. Also, while I love Sofia Coppola,(can I hang out with her now, please?) in the 90's I would loved to have hung out with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy! Thanks for the fun post, got me thinking.

Great post. There are too many in the 1970s, but I would have picked Tiny Weymouth! But she could squeeze into the early 80s, too...

I'm so obsessed with this!! So amazing!

This is fabulous. But I think I'd hang out with Gerald and Sarah Murphy on the French Riviera in the 20s-30s! You must read their biography, Everybody Was So Young: Gerald and Sarah Murphy A Lost Generation Love Story.

Love your blog.
