I’m sick AND trying to finish my reviews for the mini-contest, but I thought a few scans would be in order. Last week a student commented on how toned-down colors were in the 1940’s-50’s. Really? The movies were in black and white, the world wasn’t. So here’s some technicolor goodness from October 1958.
I love the pink sheath with the polka dot bands. Also, is dress 10 a throwback to the 30’s? I like it, though I think if it weren’t carefully made up it would look dowdy and cheap. Check the back- it is completely pin tucked and complete with no less than two bows. The self-fabric bows don’t scream 1930’s to me.
There isn’t a dress in the lot that I wouldn’t wear. The gray “Matron’s frock” is a little… uhm… matronly.
How cute are all the teeny romper suits? I’ll have one of each…
