Vintage Vogue Heaven

Thanks to those of you who asked how my midterm went! It was a hard test, but I think I did okay. And now that it's over with, I get to spend my time doing more interesting things, like poring over old pictures from Vogue!

The paintings and drawings that filled the past issues have always amazed me with their stunning beauty, but today I'm drawn to vintage Vogue photographs. Check it out:



Gossip Girl, eat your heart out! 1950s fashionistas pulled off the schoolgirl look in a classy, sassy way.

Coco Chanel makes that tangle of gold medallions look so elegant.

I love Goldie Hawn's dress almost as much as I love her pose.

Oooh, Sophia Loren! Smoking kills, children...

I adore this picture of Penelope Tree. I just do. I would wear her outfit out, no questions asked.

If you want to ogle some more vintage photographs, or perhaps feast your eyes on beautiful fashion artwork, head to the Conde Nast store. Also available are pictures and covers from magazines like Vanity Fair, Mademoiselle, House and Garden, and GQ. Enjoy!

I'd never seen that image of Goldie Hawn. She looks fantastic.

And I hate chokers, too. I won't be wearing one any time soon.

Wow.... I too love Goldie Hawn's dress and the first photo of the two pencil skirted ladies is quite inspiring...

so chic! goldie hawn's picture looks incredibly modern.
gosh, whenever i see a picture of a glamorous person smoking, all those anti-smoking lessons i learned in elementery school go right out of my head.
i'm off to go repeat my personal anti-smoking mantra over and over: "smoking makes you ugly... smoking makes you ugly..."

A quintessential staple of Coco Chanel is PEARLS....she used to almost strangle herself with loads of pearls, that is what I think of when I see any pictures of her, I am always looking for those pearls.....I wish we could still pull of those looks from the pages of these vintage vouge's without looking retarded.....I truly bllieve I was born in the wrong era!!!!

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.
