Hi everyone! It's warming up out there! Horray! Today I am taking you back. Have you ever been to a fashion show? The one You are about to see took place in the forties and was supposed to be all about summer wear.
The narrator weaves a story and the models play their parts. This Fashion show seems to have been filmed in Palm Beach
OK, here are a few things I noticed about life in the forties....
1. I guess people didn't sweat or mind the heat of summer because the men are wearing suits in the hot sun!
2. Their resort wear would be considered Dress up clothes now.
3. A bare midriff meant that the skirt or shorts was worn way above the belly button; it also meant that about one or two inches of skin was on display. ...scandalous!
There are terms that I have never heard before...
Like "patio suit"
they called outfits "costumes"
I love the patio slack suit in the begining and the Tahitian print double knotted Cabana dress toward the end
