Ladies, you look absolutely fabulous!
These girls are looking very gay in their Day-into-Date Dresses! Simply switch the skirt to go from a “day into date” look. The dress is made out of “Cloud-soft classics of Cohama Velgado, a new wonder-blend of Acrilan and Rayon that looks and feels like lightweight Wool Flannel.” And ladies, it’s washable, too! They have four colors to choose from – Beige, Emerald Green, Lilac or Coppertone.
(Don’t you just love the word “wonder-blend?”)

I heard the phrase, “You can never have enough hats, gloves and shoes” somewhere, but I can’t remember where. Whomever said it, I completely agree with them!
There is a new website that you must simply visit! It is called My Vintage Vogue and the images are to die for!
Jessica is the lovely lady who collects fashion images, including such magazines as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Charm and Mademoiselle. The photos range from the 1920’s through to 1965. Her website shows the hard work she puts into finding and posting her images. You can also find more images through her links on the Contact Us page.
Jessica, you are certainly top drawer!
