Let’s face it: We’ve got a lot of ways to take and send pictures these days. And while it’s hella convenient, nothing beats the old 35-milimeter for vintage authenticity, not to mention artsy sex appeal. So whether you’re a photographer or just a fan of the old-fashioned photo, here are 6 accessories inspired by the real deal so you can show your love while you’re snapping away on your smartphone. Take a look.
Super girly yet uniquely inspired, this necklace is dainty and distinct. link.
Have you seen this? It’s the first prototype for Instagram’s own digital camera, complete with an internal printer. So it’s like a digital Polaroid camera… pretty cool. link.
Give your latte a little lift with a telescoping lens (no the drink size doesn’t change) coffee mug. Modeled after a Canon lens, it’s true to size, shape and function. link.
If it’s the sincerity of a faded photo you’re into, this company will put a mosaic of your Instagram pictures onto throw pillows, which actually looks way cooler than I would have expected. link.
The perspective on this Etsy piece throws my brain for a loop. You’d almost think you had a real camera around your neck. Oh, and the price is right. link.
There are a lot of iPhone cases out there meant to look like cameras, but I think I prefer this style of a super-real photo over the wooden kind. link.
I’m loving how our generation is looking to the past for fashion inspiration. We’re don’t want to forget all the awesome things that used to be just because technology is making our lives easier. Some kids these days don’t know what a casette tape is! So rock these accessories with pride.
