Here's a bit of a challenge:
This image is from an issue of Libelle magazine from the summer of 1960.
Now, as you know, I enjoy collecting and reading vintage magazines. I like vintage fashion and vintage sewing patterns. Not just the dresses but separates, suits, trousers and playsuits too. And usually, when I get period photographs instead of the usual drawings, I consider that to be a treat.
And then, I come across a picture like this...
Ehm... What can I say. According to the text, this is a combination of a top and trousers with tapered legs for which you could order the pattern. The photograph was shown on the back cover of the magazine which is why it is a full page and in colour.
I think it looks crazy. And not in a good way. That is way too much gingham for my taste, I'm not a fan of the shape of the outfit or the ruffle down the front and the combination of make-up and the way she is posing makes this lady look a bit... eh... insane.
However, this was a serious picture promoting the magazine's patterns back in the day. Which makes me wonder: Does your love for vintage style stretch this far?
