A mother-of-three has completely shunned modern life in favour of 1940s glamour, ensuring her clothes, house, car, food, and even her friends match the style of the era.
Forensic psychiatric nurse Christine Edun, 55, who lives in Formby, Merseyside, has dedicated her whole life to emulating the style of the decade since she was a teenager, when she began spending hours scouring vintage markets looking for authentic pieces of clothing from the decade.
Christine loved the style of the fashion, the music and the films, and though her childhood obsession started with dresses and handbags, when she moved into her own home Christine started looking for 1940s style furniture, and now says her house is like a treasure trove for vintage goods.
'One of my favourite parts of dressing the way I do is the lingerie and nightwear, and I have even launched my own business selling beautiful underwear online called Femme Fatale.
'The vintage knickers, camis, corsets, stockings and suspenders are so feminine and they feel so beautiful under your clothes.
'The nightwear is also so beautiful. I have gorgeous silk dressing gowns that make me feel like an on-screen goddess!'

There is a store downtown that sells only ‘40s style clothing (all brand new)....yes and underwear.
Wonder if its going to be a trend.
Apparently, her obsession doesn’t extend to the diet imposed by the strict rationing that wasn’t lifted until the 1950’s
I could go for a 1940 Ford V-8 two door coupe.
I wonder if she watches the movies on her vintage 1940's DVD player or streams them on her vintage 1940's WiFi.
I’d go back to 1940’s fashion, movies and that is about all.
Was “forensic psychiatric nurse” a career open to women in the 1940s?
Imagine a world without the Beatles. It’s easy if you try.
1940’s 1911 and Chicago typewriter, That’s all.
Almost afraid to ask for pictures...for scientific research, y'know.
And not everyone is into tattoo culture.
I, for one, am grateful that some resist it. Good photo too.
For a Brit a bit of a odd time to go nostalgic. Almost the whole decade was characterized by austerity and rationing during the War and post-War under the Labour government.
Pre-Cliff Richards, Pre-skiffle boys.
The age of Vera Lynn and trad jazz groups.
The 1930s in America weren’t wonderful with Hoover/Roosevelt but there was streamlined design, swing bands (jazz and Texas country), blues, Betty Boop cartoons, and more. Some fixate on that (like Robert Crumb).
