Paris Loves Retro

Retro is in. In any form these days it seems. When I look at fashion trends I see retro from the 1920’s to the 1980’s popping up in every magazine. Wedding decoration has gone totally retro, and even photography is looking backwards for inspiration. I love it. Maybe it is just a sign of our times, where our future looks… Read more →
