While visiting my favorite antique store, I found this fabulous Montgomery Ward's catalog from 1949. I snapped some shots of it with my phone, so I apologize that some of them are blurry.
I love the one with the big bow, 4th from the left.
The chevron print on the one on the right is very on trend. But, I really love the plaid one (3rd from the left). Those pockets!
I think my favorite out of all of them is the one with the lacing detail at the waist (second from the right in the photo below).
I love the waistline on the polka dot one. And, the one with the bow at the neckline (um, which I guess is also a polka dot...oops...) is fantastic.
I wish we could still order from old catalogs, as if there were some great warehouse somewhere that never went out of stock. :) Wouldn't that be fantastic! I love these great vintage dresses!
