I've been shopping in time again

You know that I love old mail order clothing catalog, Bellas Hess is probably my favorite. I went through and few 1930s issues today and did some scans of items that I covet. New scanner, set at too low of a DPI, so the photos aren't the best and I was too lazy to rescan them all.

All three please, because I really do need one for going places and two for doing things.

The best tennis dress ever. I don't play, but I might take it up if I could play in this dress.

Below, I like the 1st one and the 4th one with the polo ponies. $1 each!

Another dress to feed my sailor-nautical-look obsession.

Swimsuits. Just give me them all. I don't care if they are wool. I'll wear them in the Winter over opaque tights with a trench coat if I have to.


Pants. Again, I'll take them all. I love the hi-waisted, wide legged sailor style of these pants, but I could never pull them off. First, I'm short. Secondly, I cannot stand anything across my tummy. Around the house my jeans are always unzipped when I sit even though they aren't tight jean. I just don't like anything close fitting above my navel. I cut the front of my pantyhose too so that they don't touch my tummy. I'm just weird that way.
But all the same, I love the look of these pants. And the overalls and the pain that they would be to go to the bathroom in.

These are actually pajamas, bu I'd be wearing them out. Again, sailor. Wide legs. Love it.
