Good afternoon lovelies!
It’s raining, cold and dreary outside. So, I’m trying to make it sunny inside! I’ve pressed some fresh coffee and I’m flipping through some catalogs from 1956 that my mother gave me. The dresses for Spring/Summer of that year were spectacular!
I love the bright colours, patterns, fabrics and the swing dress style. I have several 50s Summer dresses and spy a dress below that looks near identical to one of mine! It’s the black and white striped shirtwaist dress in photo number 14. One of the types of dresses I like best for Summer is the 50s cotton day dress. They are light, airy and keep one cool in the hot, hot heat. Check out the darling ones below in photos 4, 8 and 22.
Oh, how I wish I could put an order in! I’ve already amassed several new dresses for my Summer wardrobe, but I could always make room for a few more. ;0
