Inspiration From The Past // 1957 // Winter

merry christmas dear readers!
for christmas i leave you with some pictures taken from one of my beloved vintage fashion and sewing magazines. especially today with some inspiring festive winter dresses from 1957. i hope you enjoy.

the bf and i were totally sick the past few days and felt totally miserable. some evil virus had caught us ... we both weren't able to go to work, to read a book, to read a mail or watch tv .... even sleeping didn't worked because of the hurting head, bones and eyeballs (!!!!). but now we're slowly getting back in the normal groove of christmas things ...
while writing this post i pack my little bag for the christmas days at home. this time i mostly added comfy pieces to the tiny pile ... i still don't feel like getting dressed up after this virus ... but i will be back after the 26th.

have a great time with your friends and families!

Love all these beautiful inspiration photos! I'm so sorry you've been sick, but glad you're back on the mend! It would be sad to be sick on Christmas.

Oh dear, I'm very sorry to hear that you've been so ill lately, dear gal. I love winter, but that fact that it strikes so many of us ill with it's viruses each year is one of it's most despicable traits for sure.

Thank you for sharing these enchantingly lovely 1950s fashions with us. I completely adore the first blue dress - ooohhh, if I was a sewer, I would try to recreate that for sure!

Wishing you speedy healing & the happiest of holiday seasons,
♥ Jessica
