I totally envy their home decor and clothes! Especially the first girl's kitchen. ADORABLE.
I think it's kind of cool that they're so devoted to immersing themselves in living in, like, this retro little world, and as long as they do it out of choice and don't force their opinions on others (like, that second girl sounded pretttty damn self righteous) I'm sure it works for them. I probably wouldn't do that, but I don't judge.
If you read any women's studies history book or scholarly article, you will find out that those women were either unhappy about their life (lack of rights, lack of options, responsibilities, etc.) OR too simple and/or brainwashed to be unhappy.
