Fashion Ads From Days Gone By

Converse 1961

Taschen created the book “Ads of the 20th Century – Fashion” that graces my bookshelf at home.  They publish lots of fashion inspired both hard and soft-back books.  I love looking through the colourful images, that are glossy and inspiring.  Of course, like many of my books, I buy them purely for the pictures as they look perfect dotted around my house.   A splash of fashion in every room looks good to me.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

    In the change rooms at my local Myer are framed prints of a past advertising campaign – women’s and girls “summer frocks” from around the 1930’s. Cute and stylish options! Always an interesting way to pass a few minutes if waiting for a free cubicle!

    • What a nice touch and something to look at while waiting. Mum still has some patterns from many years ago, and I still remember her busy sewing clothes for me and Kathy. Somehow the boys didn’t wear anything home made!!

  2. I love the brassiere and control girdle. Remember Bridget Jones’s “mummy” pants?
