I grew up loving books and as I began to love fashion and art, I particularly loved coffee table books. At an antique store in Ithaca, I came across a large pink leather bound book which contains Vogue magazines from October-December 1957. I am so inspired by Vogue and have subscribed since I was a teenager. I still can't believe I found this!
The book contains so many inspirational images and documents Vogue in the post-war period before ready to wear clothing began to replace couture.
The book is stamped "Elmira College Library." I like to think of the college students who read this when the issues were current.
This book is a reminder to take time to think about my wardrobe and invest in classic pieces (especially coats and dresses) rather than fast fashion.
Classic pieces are always glamorous.
