Don’t We All Need a Little Living in Fifties Fashion?

Hi there, guys and dolls! Have I got a great Raves n Faves for you this week. It’s one of my favorite sites to visit. Well, in fact, settle in and stay for hours on end. Trust me, it’ll take more than just the weekend to discover all the great things about

Oh, the glamourama!

My dear sweet and savvy friend Rita runs this site so delightfully entertaining and thorough. It’s a treasure trove of great and fun information and beautiful pictures. She also tosses in some great hometown and charming information about her own lovely life and upbringing, it makes you smile just knowing such good people are out there, sharing beautiful moments in time.

There’s those amazingly stunning fashion photos of glamorous garments from around the world like Dior, Givenchy, Adrian and Norell, and let’s not forget the works of Edith Head which still makes us all sigh and swoon from the silver screen still today.

Heck, you could even whip these up yourself!

The articles are well written and a joy to read and she also has some great links to some of the best retro and vintage fashion available today. And don’t forget her visually stunning Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest links as well. You may never scroll anywhere else again. Breathtaking!

Just some little somethings for every day.

It’s so apparent that her timeless passion for vintage fashion is a lifelong affair. Dear friends and readers, do yourself a huge favor and set aside some inspiring me time to fall in love with like I have. Be sure when you do, drop Rita a line. Like yours truly, she loves to hear from you about your fabulous fifties living and memories. You’ll be so glad you did!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more posts. And don’t forget to give my Poppy Cove Mysteries a try if you haven’t already.

Toodles, Barbara Jean
