For some reason this never posted as scheduled!
A few years back, I was fortunate enough to travel to Hawaii (Oahu) to see my best friend and her family. One humbling experience I had while there was a trip to Pearl Harbor (the USS Arizona). I don't want to write a play-by-play of the tour, but it's one of those life changing experiences that is never forgotten.
The 1940's was a different time. I'm sure most women didn't have time to think about what to wear, they had to attend to the needs of their family and their community! The men were away at war, and the women began to take over.
Those women used the clothing they already had available to them, and they managed to remain beautiful. I do believe that all women of that era had inevitable style and class.
That's what makes 1940's vintage so appealing!
(not sure if this clock fits into the set, but i couldn't remove it)
