Vintage 1960s Mustang – a forgotten fashion photoshoot

I was going through my old hard drive, and realized that I’d exported these 1960s styled photos of Ashley, but never posted them to this vintage blog! I dressed and styled her in a vintage light green psychedelic floral minidress and hat. Since we were going to shoot other sets, I kept her makeup fairly neutral, but with bright pink lipstick.

St. Louis advertisements for women’s dresses and hats from the August 1924 Fashion Pageant.

I like the illustration on the Gold Medal Hats advertisement, the best. The lady in a cloche hat and bobbed hair is draped with a shawl coming seductively off her shoulder, holding a feather fan. The birthmark on her cheek is in the shape of a heart.

1920s advertisements – mainly mens fashions

This entry is part 5 of 26 in the series 1924 St. Louis Fashion Pageant

These illustrated fashion advertisements from 1924 are so interesting! These ads seem primarily directed to retailers, rather than the consumer…. I’ve not peeked thru the pages further than I’ve scanned them, and I’ve not researched the Saint Louis Fashion Pageant yet, so maybe it was more of an industry thing like NYC Fashion Week?
