Vintage Mademoiselle 1951 and 1952

I was able to get out to my University's library this week and scanned some vintage dresses from the periodical resources they have on hand. I started with Mademoiselle Dec. 1951- April 1952 issues.

I chose the smallest binder of magazine for my scanner, although it worked great for the larger binders too. Love my scanner, it is 8 x11" screen size, compact and only needs to be plugged into my laptop to scan or copy, so portable. I was in the 30 minute free parking space (otherwise you need a permit), but that was plenty of time to capture a few good pages. It is usually quiet up in the periodicals and since school doesn't start until the end of September I was able to grab a study room to set up as my husband peruses other topics.

Below are two bridemaid's dress and for an after five dinner dress, on left silk organza orginally priced at $39.95, on right nylon and rayon orginal price $29.95.

Here is a taffeta rayon dress and jacket for the holidays and into Spring, sleeveless dress with bolero jacket in black or navy, $20.

Cute striped dress with matching bolero, on the cover of Mademoiselle Jan. 1952. nice touch of red (hat).

Below from Mademoiselle Feb. 1952, very interesting sleeves for this time period, they remind of the Colonial-Victorian era, pretty bouses, the descriptions are nice if you can zoom in on them.

Mademoiselle April 1952, love the cut of these dresses and the prints too.
Coming up are some photos from Harper Bazaar September 1936 and July 1939. If you want a sneak peek, they have been posted on my Facebook at Oso Victoria Vintage go to photos to see them, lots of great vintage photos there. Until then....
