Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion

Fun with Fashions

I knew that I would have a lot of fun taking some new photos for this challenge. Amongst my “stuff” I have quite a lot of vintage women’s magazines and old dress patterns so I decided to use them to illustrate some fashions through the ages. Here is one from a calendar.

Advertisements from the 1930s, fashions from the 1950s and a pattern I am guessing dates from the 1980s.

Of course, I could not leave out fashion dolls. Barbie has been around for sixty years now and her fashions have reflected the trends of every decade since the fifties. Barbie has had as many books written about her as any Supermodel, probably more.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogs with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
