Woman quits job and ditches modern life to become a 1950s housewife

Must See 23/01/2020

Jemima Collins has been obsessed with the 1950s as long as she can remember. 

Over the years she has accumulated a large amount of 50s dresses, brooches, elegant hats and dainty gloves and has recently decided to take her love for the 1950s to the next level and quit her job to become a traditional 1950s housewife.

Although she admits she attracts lots of inquisitive stares from people curious about her fashion sense, she doesn’t care what others think.

Speaking to Metro UK, Jemima said: "I love being a housewife. People might say that I’m going against feminism but it’s entirely my choice."

"My husband and I have traditional roles in the home. My job as a housewife is to look after the home and he goes out and works."

"It might not be for everyone, but it is what works for me. It’s totally my choice and it makes me happier than I’ve ever been."

"I’ve always been really drawn to that period of history, and I adore the fashion from the 1950s."

"I take great pride in what I wear, and it makes me feel amazing, beautiful and confident when I’m dressed in my vintage clothes."

"People will often stare at me when I’m walking down the street or having coffee in a café. They probably haven’t seen anyone dressed like me very often as it’s so different to what other women my age will wear."
