So you find yourself stuck in the 21st century without a DeLorean to take you back to the 1950’s? Me too. It’s a shame that time travel is reserved as a luxury for only the very wealthy. But the good news is, we can still live vicariously through old songs, photos, fashion styles and some of the (although seemingly antiquated) ideas of the mid-20th century.

And in this blog, I’m here to do just that. My name’s Deidre, but you can call me Retro Dee. Hopefully my tips and stories will inspire others to keep the greatest era in the History of Mankind alive today. Or maybe you’re just bored and need something to read. Either way, this is my guide to living with my great passion, the 1950’s era.

“In my next life, I want to come back in the 1950’s.

But since time is linear, that leads me to believe that it probably won’t work.”

The mission statement of this blog is to educate, entertain and preserve the 1950’s decade.
