What great images! I have a soft spot for the fashion of that era. My grandmother used to have the most amazing hats from the 50s and 60s that she had held on to (with a pair of matching gloves and handbags for each.) And when I was really really good she let me play dress up with them.

Style and beauty are ageless. What fun photos you found.

Really I know some of your home pics have been circulating for a while but after I took the tour on Apartment Therapy I was reminded again how beautiful it is. I even had to look @ them twice today.

What ever happened to those high-necked sweaters? I had a few from the 50s, but the silver fish got to them. Why aren't these sweaters back in style. They are so flattering.
