I should let my daughter write this post up. This is her expertise, all things fashion. She is a fashion fanatic. Anyway here they are…beautiful clothes and designs from the 1920’s. At least I think they are pretty.

The fashion ads are all works of art. Some of the dresses back in the 20’s were just gorgeous.

These dresses here ranged in price from $3-$5. Can you imagine getting a dress that cheap now days? Maybe at a secondhand shop if you are lucky.

They even had plus sized dresses that were pretty. Look at their hats. I wonder what people would think nowadays if hats came back into fashion. They only seem to be in fashion in England and at weddings.

Now this I can’t even imagine having to wear.

Corsets look like they took a lot of time to put on and I bet they itched. They look itchy to me. So happy Spanx was invented. Although I never have owned Spanx I am sure they are a lot more comfortable then a corset. I mean, come on, look at this…it looks like a nightmare to wear. I won’t even go into bathroom issues, maybe a little TMI there.

Even kids had pretty outfits. Who would want their kids to get dirty in these? I think  these outfits were considered the dress clothes for Sunday church. My favorite is the checkered overcoat with the black hat.

Wow, how shoes have changed since the 1920’s. Sorry, but these slippers aren’t very pretty, hope they really were comfortable like the ad says.

Look at the drawing of this dress. It is so pretty. It would look nice in a tiny frame. In fact, most of these ads would look pretty in a frame. This isn’t even an ad for a dress; it’s a tooth powder ad.

This was pretty. Wonder what she is thinking about. That is a look of love…it’s got to be a that.

An article on fashions

Designer dresses from long ago. Again, look at those gorgeous hats. We need to bring hats back into fashion, they do look pretty. I like the one with flowers of course, you know me and my flowers. There was a lot to this article, maybe I will post a larger photos of these designer dresses in another post. When I took photos for this post it was outside (during the summer and record temps) and I was getting over a nasty summer cold, so some of the photos are not my usual style. This ad alone needs more attention because the drawings for these dresses were amazing to me.

There was also an article about the different fashions to wear for different occasions.

Out for dinner.

Wow, what pressure there must have been back in the 20’s to always dress nice and to look pretty? I would have stood out like a sore thumb with my painted covered jeans and old t-shirts, which I love by the way.

They were very pretty with their styles back then, that’s for sure.

I did not have any ads of men’s fashions. This was a 1920’s women’s magazine after all. Hope you all enjoyed. Part 4  will be on beauty products of the 1920’s. If you want to check out some 21st fashion styles by another fashion fanatic like my daughter then check out 3cstyle.com blog (https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/114273120/posts/10089). She is not only a beautiful person inside and out but she is also very talented with her outfits and matching them to nature. I didn’t do a favorite posts this past month but if I had, this post would have been one of them. Looks like she had a very colorful and fun vacation in Mexico.
