I ran across Vixen Vintage when I googled photos to use in my Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day post - didn't end up using any of those photos but I found a new blog to follow! Solanah has rekindled my love for vintage fashion and I thought I'd use this week to post about a few things I have kicking around. :)
I actually found this newspaper under my bed when I was cleaning. It's from the August 28, 1955 edition of the Omaha World-Herald Magazine so I really have no idea where this came from other than...time travel portal across state lines?
A back page article caught my attention - it's written for "fortyish women" urging them towards elegant maturity.
"Remember throat line."
This ad from another part of the paper made me giggle.
My mom was given a paper sack filled with vintage fabric and I stole these so I could share them with you. They are pre-cut yardages and wrapped with a label.
This part cracked me up.
Especially this one.
Although I'd LOVE pajamas made from that cute pink plaid.
Boy that looks swell! ;)
Come back tomorrow for more vintage goodness.
