How do I look?

"Are my seams straight?"
"Yes, but your legs are crooked."

Shoes, Dress, Spread

Love the shoes and the dress on the left. I have a white chenille bedspread very much like the one in the photo. Mine is probably vintage to that time or shortly afterward. Chenille is making a comeback, believe it or not!

Re: Size 12

I'm sure it was, a size twelve in 1941 was 30, 25, 33, that's a size zero now.

They look

healthy. No anorexia or bulemia there. It was a great time to be a size 12

Yes

I guess I have always loved girls who wear dresses and stockings. Nice.

Not to be too obvious, but...

Nice gams.

I Want...

Those shoes. Mind you, I wouldn't say no to legs like that either!
