Here's a bit of history:
1950s fashion was regulated by three C’s – code, conformity and consumerism. Emphasis was on practical but attractive house-dresses, not only for household chores but suitable for quick errands or daytime running.
For all of you out there
who long for some winter-magic...
here's an issue that features fur, mittens and heavy coats!
they look like elfs to me. :)
..and then they added a bow
and made everything stunning
Heavy coats, leather gloves,
fur collars (mind me: make that fur a FAKE one, please)
and light but sturdy shoes.
Kids looking less like a small adults.
... and a slow beginning of a teenager!
Great looking omelette;
a way to impress gussets while cooking on a budget.
Sleek and simple rings
(just what I prefer)
A love story - what a cover-image!

"Yes, this dress was made with Orion"
That kid has an amazing gloves!
For a great shape
one must have shape-wear.
I have nothing to say on
Zone out, with Telefunken..
the birth of TV, a friend of mine,
whom I grew up with. :)
Oh, yes.. ever wonder who to "blame" for a shift in shape?
It's Balenciaga He was influential and in the mid-1950s he created flawlessly cut clothing with loose, stand-away backs with fitted fronts and shorter sleeves. He introduced the sack dress, a shapeless shift, which was far removed from the hourglass silhouette that had endured for a decade.
About sacks - you love them or you don't... you brave them out, or you stay away. Sack-dresses are those pieces of clothing that cause opposite opinions.
For some reason, lately - I chose to brave them, wear them and.. like them.
Have a wonderful day!
