I went for an overnight stay to Carla's on the weekend - our big plan was to hit up the yard sales, we did but it was a great big bust - we bought nothing!! Last year we went and we found some half decent things, this year it was loads and loads of clothing, toys, buck store stuff and just junk in general that we surely are not interested in. That's why I said that the two yard sales I struck gold at this year would probably be it for the summer - that could very well be true!
We did venture to an antique shop that we had wanted to check out before but never did, it was just ok, don't think I will need to go back again for another year. I am always on the lookout for a Christmas catalogue, none again but I picked this Simpsons Sears catalogue up, there's no cover on it, but I had to buy it, it's from the year of my birth - 1958. Vintage fashions always make for a good blog post - here's what my Mom must have been wearing that summer.... There are so many great things in these catalogues to share - hope you enjoy the fashion show.
I love the dress on the upper left - drip-dry tie print cotton - it cost a whopping $8.99
The coral dress on the bottom left came with a personally monogrammed hankie - the dress was only $6.99
Many of the pages are in black and white - aren't they all just so Mad Men??
Maternity Styles - to look your very best!
You could buy the "Heather Glen" coat for $39.95 cash or $4.00 down with payments of $5.00
These seemed to be a lot of drip dry clothing - the most expensive shirt on the page is $2.98
Here's some drip-dry skirts - they're all pretty cute!!
I like the turquoise "boxy "popover" in cotton corduroy
There are six pages of hats - so many styles and so fashionable!
Elegance in leather and plastic!!!
Love the "baby dolls"
These slips could pass for dresses now...
Notice the briefs with "Jax" Active Back!! No bikinis or thongs back then..
This looks painful to wear!!
I remember Mom having these buckles and bows to go on shoes, I think Carla has a pair of them now...
These don't look so different from what we might see now.
What do you think of the styles back then?
