Here are a few snaps from a 40′s Vogue magazine in my collection. I am sharing because we are doing 1940′s clothes over at the Sew Weekly.
Coat in Astrakhan (a wool fabric with a pile cut and curled to look like a loosely curled fur made from the pelt of very young lambs originally bred near Astrakhan, a city and port in southwest Russia)- remember when these used to be in Op Shops?!!
A hat/snood arrangement – perfect for covering up inept hair styling I think! Must get one!
And this lovely ad for Tussy lippy “for that young, young look”!! – sums the era up quite nicely in terms of hair, and fashion.
I hope you enjoyed that!
