My Obsession with the Fifties

One of my favorite past times is simply looking at editorials from the 1950's. Something fascinates me about this era, whether it be the perfect hair, tiny waists or the glamor. I find my muse in old editorials, with a fraction of the magazines we have today being available back then, it is quite interesting to see editorials from over 50 years ago. Each shot makes me think who was this woman? And then of course my mind wanders into a million other questions. Right now the 50's is my favorite era to look back on, it may change with time. I love finding out which era other people love, because I think it can say a lot about a person - whats yours?

  1. The fifties was definitely a unique decade. I think fashion from the past is great! Nothing should ever go completely out of style. We should keep mixing trends.
