My 50s Style Going Out Outfit

I have always liked the fashion of the 50s and 60s. I find it very feminine and stylish.
When I was little, one of our neighbors had a big catalouge of an American department store (I cannot recall the store name). The catalog was huge and very thick. I loved watching it and all the pictures included in the big book. There were no photographs, just colorful drawings of all the pieces of clothing available at that particular store. Including church choir outfits which I found quite interesting too. Most of all, I was enchanted with the cute dresses, trousers and blouses. The 60s were long gone then but I could still enjoy the style of that era browsing the catalogue. I dreamed of having one of those beautiful dresses which looked so elegant and fancy (also because of a special kind of underskirt which was part of the outfit). And I so much liked looking at them that finally, the neighbor presented the catalog to me. I was happy!
We had the catalog for quite a long time, stored in one of the wardrobes. And I did watch it quite frequently. After a few years, when I grew up and was more into the 80s fashion, we threw the book away. I wish I had not done it as maybe today, it would be interesting to know which store had such an adorable collection.

Luckily, it is still possible to get that kind of clothes.
