Last week I was a bit hard on the Glamour cover that I chose to feature, so this week I thought I’d go with one that is a lot more to my liking. I know it is matchy-matchy, but isn’t that what this era was about to some degree?
Carnations must have been THE flower of the late 1950s, because we see one yet again. How about the clever way it is pinned on her coat through the brooch? And I really love the grey eyeshadow which is French Grey from Elizabeth Arden.
The cloche hat is from Emme, and the price in 1958 was $49. That’s almost $384 in 2012 dollars!
