The Way We Used To Dress
It doesn't surprise me how popular vintage fashion is becoming. Clothing in the past was made better and women tried harder to look good. Today, comfort often trumps any effort to look nice.
My favorite vintage-blogger is Jessica. She is an invaluable resource. On Facebook, Jessica just linked to an interesting article in The Huffington Post about how women dressed in the past. The article is provocatively and accurately titled, "7 Ways Your Grandmother Dressed Better Than You."
The article is worth reading. Here are the highlights:
1. You dressed to impress at every occasion.
2. Clothes were made better.
3. Fabrics were, generally, of a much-better quality.
4. They wore the right underwear.
5. Details mattered.
6. Fit was paramount.
7. Clothing cost more.
