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

Below are a few images that I hope will give you a “very vintage visual” on just how lovely this look can be today.

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

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!

One of my absolute favorite’s for beautiful vintage clothing is Timeless Vixen Vintage-(love the title). It’s a site filled with oodles of fabulous finds from the 1870’s to the 1970’s.
