Fashion


I freely admit that the Mode or fashion section of the museum was my absolute favorite. There is just something so fascinating at looking back on the styles of days gone by. I hope you'll indulge me as this post will have a few more photos than usual.


I am sure every woman has secretly dreamed of wearing one of these beautiful silk ball gowns and twirling around like a princess.


I do admit, I sometimes wish I had been born in an age where we could wear these kinds of dresses, but then I remember how restrictive and uncomfortable they really must be and I'm glad for my yoga pants.


This asymmetrical silk dress from the 1930s could probably still pass muster in a runway show today.


And this hot number from the 1950s would still look great on the red carpet. Some looks are timeless. Hope I haven't bored you with all these pictures of dresses. You'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.
  
PS: Don't forget to stop by Halcyon Travels for a look at my recent trip to Israel.

  2. Oh, I LOVE fashion exhibits! I've been to a fair number of great museums but have to admit that the exhibits that I remember best are ones such as this (and I'm not a clothes horse by any stretch of the imagination!). I love this post!

  7. I love this post. I have to admit that the fashion section of our art museum is also a favorite of mine. I agree about the timeless nature of some designs. It seems I always see something that would look just as good today as it did all those years ago.

  14. That is a great sign. Interesting to see fashion from different eras. That 1930s dress looks quite contemporary, but the 1950s dresses seem dated to that era.

  15. I also enjoy my loose fitting clothes, but I adore those dresses from the 20s and 30s!

  16. Very nice. It would be fun to be able to slip into one of those!

  17. Nice serie.
    I think it would be awful to dress clothing like these. It would take a long time before you are ready. Huh.
    But they are still beautiful.

  18. Loved these! Today, I see dresses in stores that are the same patterns as the shift dresses that my mama made for me back in the 60s and 70s.
