Fun with Fashion Advertisements

I absolutely love advertisements, whether on paper or on the T.V.  I love jingles, slogans, and unusual situations that marketers place people or products.  To honor my appreciation for trying to sell a product, I thought I would share some of my favorite fashion advertisements/catalogue inserts from 1900-1950!

1900-1910

While this isn’s a true advertisement, I still find this fascinating as the shoes on display are simply to die for!

1910-1920

A cover for a clothing catalogue gives just a glimpse at some of the, I’m sure, wonderful items for sale.  Of course, a little support of the war effort doesn’t hurt either!

1920-1930

Need I explain why this is wonderful?  I didn’t think so! 🙂

Okay, I know this is an advert for Milky Way, but just look at how wonderful this couple is dressed.  If Milky Way gives you this sort of fashion sense, sign me up!

1930-1940

I hope she gets a picture of herself…look at that perfect finger wave!

Fall fashion in both clothing and footwear…the perfect combo!

1940-1950

I only wish I could look this good in a sweater featuring a reindeer or love birds!

Sometimes less is more…and this advert hits it right on the head!

1950-1960

What a lovely green…I wonder if it is still possible to find thread and fabric and zippers that match?

Unique, ornate, and colorful…what more could you want!

Look at that cute bottle of foundation!

I hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past!  Seeing pictures like this encourages me to save my current magazines so I can look back in twenty years and reminisce over fashion, beauty, and the thought of “did I really think this was in fashion?”

  1. Lovely vintage pictures and advetrtisements! Love the idea of saving some of today’s magazines to look back on in 20 years. I made some scrapbooks with ideas for home decor in the 1980s and still have them. I cannot bring myself to throw them away! Popping in as part of my blog comment challenge 300 in 30 days.
