The Way it Was in Westport

I've been cruising through vintage advertisements this morning, on a mission to find out how handbags were sold decades ago. What a nostalgic trip it has been. OJ selling Dingo boots. Some ultrasexy 60s bra ads. Guy Bourdin's fantastic work for Charles Jourdan shoes. And this classic from Life Stride.

Fascinating to catch a real-life glimpse into the Mad Men era when "mother-daughter" dressing meant daughters dressing up, rather than mothers dressing down.

  1. Then I was the daughter, now I am the mother and I would LOVE a pair of the two-tone lace ups!
