Vintage Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! Hosted by the lovely Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/


I just love all of the romantic fashions of the 1950's Women looked so put together in those days with the clutch purse and kid leather gloves.

Pink was a very popular color in the 1950's and early 1960's. Something of romance in every day life.




I really love the long gloves on this beauty. I have a pair, but never have worn them.



I am getting ready for Easter a little early. I found this wonderful old stuffed vintage looking rabbit with his pink and blue vest at Ross dept store.


Next week during my Pink Saturday post. I will be celebrating my 100th post. I am planning another giveaway, so please stop by for a quick visit! Have a great week.


Hugs,

Lorri

Great post! I love the 50s stuff too. Probably because my mom graduated in 56.

Those pictures are just divine Lorri - I grew up here watching re-runs of shows like Bewitched and thinking that women in America were just the most glamourous, polished, stylish people on earth! Always so smart!!

I loved growing up in that era, Yes, I'm that old, the clothes were so feminine and I wore gloves, hats and dresses to church. And we always wore skirts or dresses. When I had my Home Economics class, we couldn't cook if we had slacks on. We could only wear slacks on special occasions to school. (I don't remember what that occasion was.) hehe It was a fun and colorful time and brings back sweet memories for me.

I remember all to well the pink of the 50's and early 60's. My parents had a pink DeSoto that had push buttons instead of a gear shift. I love the style of the 40's. Oh..by the way I'm new to the group and just wanted to stop by to say "hey". I hope to see you Saturday.
