I recently purchased this book... by Joanne Olian...it is a compilation of mostly women's clothing starting from 1950 through 1959.. All courtesy of vintage Sears catalogs.
It is fun to see the progression of fashions in just one decade from peep toed shoes to stiletto heels. From fussy fitted dresses adorned with pearls & gloves to fun carefree unstructured dresses and overtly silly hats.... it also had a cute little section with aprons..wish I had a few of those aprons in my collection.
There is also a 1940's and a 1960's edition if you are interested in older or new clothing.
