Yes, I can hear you thinking to yourselves “Did I read that right? Did she say Barbie Fashion?” And I did say that. Barbie is as old as some of us are and older than others. But she was just as much a part of the fashiontude in the 40’s as were some of the top designers.Take a look and see what I mean. She emulated all the latest styles and even boosted their acceptance at times. From Vogue to Couture.
For throwbacks, these outfits are still eye-catching today and almost equally as popular.
I guess folks decided that these designs were keepers after all.
That’s all for this Throwback.

Legs and their appearance have been an ongoing attraction for years. Not just recent years, more than YEARS ago, actually ions of years ago. One of the most popular accessorizing of these lengthy and even the not-so-lengthy limbs has been hosiery. According to Merriam Webster Online Dictionary the first known usage of hosiery dates clear back to 1739! Big changes occurred in the 1940’s with the seamless hosiery becoming more popular as silk hose were replaced with nylon for use on “dressy occasions”. Actual pantyhose appeared in the 1960’s. Today both hosiery and pantyhose are popular. Here are a few I found most fascinating.
Thanks for taking a “blast to the past” & present with us.

Our apologies for the delay in this Thursday’s post. Miss Trisha passed the ball to Corrina and she dropped it. So here we are late in the evening “throwing” the ball back into play.
From the 1920’s to the 1970’s hair has taken quite a trip in fashion. From slicked down and close to bushed out and fluffed up. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane.

Hattily Ever After
Ever wonder if hats are your thing? Well just put one on and look in the mirror. Do you look good, do you look bad.. Buy it, take it home and get into the outfit that you are going to wear for your outing. If you’re a lady put your makeup on if you aren’t already wearing it. Put that hat on and check yourself out in the mirror. I know it’s going to sound absolutely silly, but totally do it; if anything you will laugh. Make sexy faces at yourself in the mirror. Think “I am the hottest thing since the next Top Model”. Look at yourself and say “OOOOH! Yeah I made a great choice. I am so happy with this purchase.”
Now for all you men out there…. you all know that you love hats and have at least two if not more. You probably have your favorite one that you always wear and it is so worn out you are saying “I can’t get rid of it I have had it through all the best times of my life and to part with it would be unheard of.” Men, you have hats are of all sorts; anywhere from ball caps to dress hats, to stocking caps.
At first men would wear hats just to protect themselves from the sun. Nowadays they wear them to stay warm or to look supper sexy in their duds.
It doesn’t matter your age, your culture or if you are female or male. You are Sexy, Beautiful and Worthy!

So we sit at the threshold of a new year again. But this year instead of looking into this past year, we take you back to the 1940’s. Follow along with a peek into the past…
GLOVES & CLUTCHES
From head to toe, these women knew how to turn heads and accessorize.
As you may have noticed RED, BLACK & WHITE were favorite colors.
Thank you for joining us on the little venture.
