I adore looking through old magazines. Talk about a step back in time! Recently I got my mitts on a Good Housekeeping from April 1957. It was only 35¢! The pages smell a little musty and are yellowed, but I don’t mind! With classic article topics like “10 Ways to Look Different” that suggest you “change your dress color” and “point your eyebrows out” to a full-length article asking “To Refreeze or Not to Refreeze?” life just seemed so simple and sweet in the 50s.
But the real prize are the advertisements. Check out these incredibly revealing (and sometimes hilarious!) peaks into the past!
A Kotex “belt”? Oh my god.
Such a pretty bottle of makeup!
Why isn’t there a spray nozzle on the starch bottle? Would you just dump it on?
Underwear sure has come a long way. I’d love to step back in time and shows these ladies a pair of thong underwear. Imagine!
Compared to today’s makeup this probably isn’t very good, but the pink liquid looks so pretty I want to try some!
There’s nothing cuter than vintage baby clothes!
To think this staple was once “new!” I use this stuff all the time!
Aren’t these fun? I’ll probably eventually do another post on some of the articles I found in here. Such a time capsule! Let me know what you think in the comments!
