Simpson's Catalogue Fall and Winter 1950 - 1951
As a child I remember when the mail order catalogues arrived, what fun it was - my sister and I used to carefully go through each page and make a favourite 'pick' from every section! Painless shopping as we hardly ever bought anything.
Now, I love this Simpson's catalogue for a couple of reasons - the 1950's fashions, home wares, jewellery, fabrics and appliances are some of my favourite styles and the items pictured are a great resource for dating things that arrive at the shop... and I used to live in Toronto (no, not in the 1950's!) and so seeing the Simpson's name made me a little nostalgic.
Some nasty little person has been thoughtless enough to snip out a few pages but the remaining ones are a joy to see.
Bags of bags!
The "New York Inspired Pouch" top left...rayon bengaline bag with the handle gathered through gilt metal top - all for $2.49!
Warm and bright coats to cope with than Canadian winter.
The green all wool twill coat has a fabulous cape like collar with grey dyed lamb trim. Wide flaring skirt just yummy and all for $29.99.
What cute grown up designs for the littlies!
Quite lovely although they do look like ground crew landing a 747 with their poses.
And last but not least taffeta all the way with these designs....
Do you still have the green coat pleaseReplyDelete
The coat is featured in the catalogue not in the shop - sorry.
