NYC Fashion in Black and White
Jan 7, 2010
Looking at vintage photographs of eras goneby always makes me a little bit sad. When did people stop caring about their appearance? I think at some point during the last century most Americans decided that since they would never look like Cary Grant or Grace Kelly there was no reason to keep trying. It was at that point that they traded their dresses and suits for Juicy velour and t-shirts. It’s tragic really.
The following photos are courtesy of LIFE magazine and the website BryanBoy. You’ll notice that there isn’t a pair of Uggs or a Vera Bradley handbag anywhere.
Can I have the gown in the window? Please?
I think I need to start bringing back hats for daily wear. Sadly, my round face looks bad when I wear a hat.
Eight women, eight pairs of high heels. You’d never see that today.
I love the suit, the hat, and the car. Everything really, except for the poodles.
