Flashback Friday… seems like the perfect day to step back and take a look at some BEAUUUTIUFL Vintage fashions that you could still wear today. (If  one were able to get out and about and possibly have a need to dress UP).

There’s something about well made clothing and classic styling that quite frankly never diminishes in beauty or wear ability. My Mother always said: “Good taste never goes out of style”… and I must say that Mom was right once again. Enjoy!

Wonderful….one piece swimsuits were all the rage in the 1950’s.

I couldn’t help but feature this stunning Norman Norell dress from 1949.  Luxe detailing and classic lines make it wearable today. Sooooo gorgeous.

The Weekend…

Mad Men returns to AMC for it’s 6th season on Sunday.Fingers crossed that the story lines will improve from season 5-(which were lackluster at best). In a nod to the fashions of the 60’s (which costume Designer Jamie Bryant puts together with the greatest of ease)-I thought it might be nice to highlight some fabulous vintage fashions from days gone by…Enjoy the weekend!
