That is the tagline for Woman Magazine from 1953…could almost be the the tagline for any ‘woman’s interest’ magazine from today – apparently, not much changes (except women’s body shape but more about that another day!). Anyway, this is a magazine I picked up on a recent trip to Daylesford and a huge vintage warehouse-type place called The Mill Markets – if you’re in the area, and love vintage you should check it out. There’s a huge variety of items available from jewellery and clothing, to furniture and porcelain – and many others besides.
I thought some of you might be interested in the contents of the magazine. I’ll start you off with some drool-worthy dresses.
I love this dreamy dress – I might need to make myself one for next Spring. It’s the perfect Spring sun-dress for floating around gardens in, don’t you think?
How brilliant is this collection of dresses? I think I could use at least one of each in my wardrobe. I particularly like the purple dress on the right.
I really wish I could find seersucker as colourful as this nowadays. I reckon I’d rock the green version!
Well, that’s enough staring dolefully at dresses for me for now – time to go and make some of my own. I’ve a few more gems from the magazine to share soon, so keep an eye out if you’re keen to see more.
