    Love It!!!

    There's something magical and inspiring about the 1950s 'look'. At the risk of sounding ultra conservative I think they had the right idea about how to dress back then. Watching old movies makes me wish I could have been born in an era where women were oh so glamorous and...

    What An Era For Fashion

    I absolutely love the fashions from the 50's. I love everything about how women dressed in the 50's.  What is not to like.  Bare legs were not in fashion so women always wore nylons.  Pantyhose were not out yet so women wore garter belts or girdles and nylon stockings.  Back...

    Growing Up In The Fifties

    Everything I learned about being a woman was learned from women of that era. I absolutely love everything about the fashion of the 40's to early 60's. Refuse to wear panty hose!!! Love to All Vicky

    As a child of the '90's, I shouldn't like the decades way before me, but I have a soft spot for vintage and retro clothing...It doesn't even have to be clothes. It could be photographs, knicknacks, anything. I'm trying to build a record collection, too, but I need more money...

    Love Fifties!

    I loved the kind of clothes girls and women wore then.  I remember cotton lisle stockings for younger girls; ffstockings, corselettes, obgs, slips.  I still wear most of these items.

    Battle Of The Stripes

    In the early '80s I went out for a date with a girl on a nice summer's day. Given we were aged 12 our parents were keen to know the date was to take place at a 'suitable' venue so I came up with a visit to the zoo - not so much for the opportunity to see the animals but more so...

    I love 50's fashion, I also like 1940's music!

    Especially at this time of year, it makes me feel really festive!! Nothing better than putting on an old vinyl and humming some blues :)

    What A Great Decade

    I don't think we could ever have a better time than during the 50's....  Women looked, and acted like women.. The innocent 50's indeed.. Just look at the femme apparel during those years...  Ultra feminine. High Heels were gorgeous, although HIGH HEELS are very much back in...

    AMC's Mad Men Tv Series ... Women's Clothes

    Oh my, I so love the fashions the ladies wear on this show set in the 1950's. Janie Bryant, costume designer for the hit series, really does the 50's and 60's justice. The clothes are truly awesome and adorable. I could never say no to these women's fashions.   This might...

    I Wear It Today

    I see nothing wrong with 50's fashion. It's called 'retro' or 'vintage' today. Some of the clothes women wore back then are beautiful and amazing. They could be sexy, alluring, beautiful and it didn't matter if it was casual of more formal wear. There were house dresses or day...

    School In The Fifties.

    I started school in the late fifties. At the age when I began to notice, and take an interest in, what was going on around me we got a new teacher. She, Gladys W., ( early twenties) wore the circle skirts and petticoats of the era. I can still picture her today and it was due...

    I Am The Only Member Of My Family That Still Wears A Girdle.

    I am part of a family of 2 boys and 2 girls and none of the girls wear girdles. Since I fell in love with the fashions of the fifties 55 years ago, I have been wearing a girdle when I have the chance. In the early years chances were few but for the last 20 or more years I change...
