Spring/Summer 1950 in color

Photobucket

A couple days last week were nice and sunny, but we're back into rainy spring mode.

For now it looks like I have to live through the delicate pages of a Spring/Summer 1950 Montgomery Wards catalogue. 

How crisp and bright everything is! 

I'm especially in love with the large print skirt in the last photo. Such a bold print looks incredibly feminine, especially with the simple white top.

Wouldn't you love to know how old these women were? 20's? 30's?

I love looking through old catalogues! Thanks so much for sharing this.

I'll have the (B) dress with white pair of (P) shoes please. :D

I love that print skirt too! But most of all, I love all the green shoes they're advertising. I can't find a pair of green heels for anything...

Ohh such beautiful dresses! I wish these were the images we would see flipping through modern magazines. I would run out and buy them all.

Swoon, thank you for sharing. I am in love with the dress on the right in the top picture, I love the contrast belt.

As usual, my eyes went straight to the bright shoes and skirt with oversized floral print! So predictable. lol. Hope that you get some nice, springtime weather soon--I'd send some of ours your way if I could. ;)

Hmmm...I'm in love with the shoes...ALL of them! Stylish and comfy! What a combo!

I like the blue number with the lace embellishment (J)...This is an easy way to glam up a dress that's sewn out of a plain solid fabric. Make sure there's a pretty scallop edge on the lace too. I'm thinking you wouldn't even need a 1/2 yard to make this work on a short-sleeve dress.
