Good morning, friends! I’ve got some more lovely inspiration for you: from 1948! (I realize last week was 1947–maybe next week I’ll include some from 1949 and we can just continue to work through the years? lol.) I’m loving some of these looks perfect for sunshine-drenched days (which today is not… sadly!). Enjoy!
I am completely smitten with those green, high wedges! Well, maybe not the double straps, but the color! (Which remind me a bit of the Remix Lido wedges…)
Interestingly the blue denim jeans on the left retailed for $3 in 1948, which would only be a little less than $27 today. I guarantee you those were much better quality than any $30 pair of jeans you’d find now! I love the border print blouse the model is sporting too!
Do I ever tire of sharing nautical looks with you? Nope! I love the lacing detail on the center blouse, and the striped shorts on the right!
I’m a bit sad this ad isn’t in color–be sure to read the descriptions of the color schemes this outfit came in! I think colorways “a” and “c” appeal to me most… They sound so lovely!
I’m not sure I’d wear these ruffled swimsuits (the ruffles are at the wrong spot for me! hehe!), but they sure are darling. Plus they show the continuing trend of the “faux bustle” that was popular in the late 1940s (shown in last week’s post).
