Kitten and Richard may look like they live in wartime Britain, but they’re actually living in a time warp of their own design. The couple, who got married in 2012, is part of a community of “throwback enthusiasts.” Kitten and Richard seek escapism from the modern world by living life like it were the 1940s.

This obsession with the 1940s era has literally taken over their lives. Their home is full of authentic ’30s and ’40s furniture, and you can bet they’ve paid a pretty penny to do so. Even the family photos scattered throughout their living room are developed in that black-and-white retro style! Kitten, who performs as a burlesque dancer and ’40s-style singer, has a closet bursting with over 100 vintage outfits and 100 pairs of retro shoes, not to mention an endless array of vintage accessories. From suits to evening dresses, the couple celebrates style that they believe is both classy and glamorous. In other words, they wouldn’t be caught dead in a pair of jeans.

When Kitten got pregnant with her first child, she and Richard decided to raise Betsy Rose in their 1940s world — and just wait until you see how they dress her up.
