Fall Fashion!

I thought you might be interested in some fall fashion......from 1953! These pictures are from a McCall's from September, 1953.Not too different from today's looks except for the hats and gloves.
These shoe adds were in the same magazine.
These look like today's shoes, too.
Can you believe the price? The magazine was only 25 cents!

My grandma used to get McCall's - I don't remember Mom getting it. Grandma would save the back issues for me when I came to visit - I adored the Betsy McCall paper dolls that came with every issue. On a related note, a few years ago when our neighbor put in new windows, he found old newspapers that had been used as insulation - from 1906 - one page was a local dept store advertising men's suits for $2. It's such fun to see old ads, isn't it?
