Catalog Sunday


1 comment:

  1. I love the lean, slouchy elegance of 1935, but it's not a look I could rock easily (at least not without a serious foundation.) One thing I could do without: the boobie-pockets or the bows that seem to point right THERE. Those are cute on someone with a typical mid-thirties figure, but not on me. Loretta Young used to look great in these styles.
