Vintage isn't always good

What timing spikesgirl58 since my 1969 Woman's Day magazine showed up yesterday! Here's my contribution to Gross Food Friday.

It's a three-fer of yuck!

That said, these pages of the fashion weren't too bad. In fact I'd totally wear many of these (click on them for bigger versions)

I would wear ALL of those looks!!! Love love love 'em!!! My absolute favourite is the blue skirt and tiny top on the last page there ^_^

You would look adorable in that!

I adore the floral dress that has an underskirt in the second set of pictures. I would wear that in a heartbeat.

Do you think it's something I could reasonably make (sew) myself??? It looks pretty simple... ME WANTY

The one with the orangey top and darker bottom?? Oh yeah you would rock the hell outta that :D

It shouldn't be too difficult. You're essentially talking about taking a long piece of fabric and a shorter piece of fabric and hemming them then putting one bit of elastic in the skirt and two in the top. The trick would be is if you got fabric with a pattern like that where you have to be careful to line things up straight.

Yep, with the cute little puffy sleeves. Love it.

I'm gonna try it ^_^ Summer project WOO

Sooo cute. Which shoes would you wear with it??

Shoes with mine depend on when I'm wearing it. If I do it with the tights like she's wearing, I'd go with either my white Docs or my black boots that look like docs for the contrast of making it less girly.

However if I wore it in the warmer months, I have some sandals that are actually similar to what the woman is wearing in the one you like.

Ooo yeah it would look cute either way ^_^ I love the more fall style with shoes (not sandals) but if I DID wear it with sandals I think I'd go for a big wedge heel! Looove that look ^_^

Those fashions are definitely good. I really like the raspberry knit poncho.

Aren't they awesome? Though there was also a several-page spread of poor children wearing plaid polyester from head to toe so there is that flip side lol.

what you consider gross was the food of my childhood and looks pretty delicious to me... different strokes.

That's what my parents said. I'm from Ohio originally so I did like some jello with pears or berries and occasionally the lime jello salad with the slaw mix in it.

But aspic with what is likely canned asparagus in it topped with hard cooked eggs isn't all that appealing to me.

The 60s were great, music and fashion-wise. Food, not so much.
