1940's-1950's Classic Vogue Fashion

    I adore the high class fashion that the 1940's and 1950's ushered in. Women always looked so polished and sophisticated . Hats, gloves, long coats,  pearls and full skirts are just a few of the things that
come to mind when I think of this time period.  Below are a few of my favorite vintage fashion pictures, ranging from the 40's to the 50's. Enjoy!
