I had an unusual childhood. While many of my childhood friends were watching Saturday morning cartoons, and the latest Disney movie, I was watching classic movies with my Dad. Movies staring Cary Grant, Glenn Ford, Hope Lange, Leslie Caron, and more were common in my home, and I remember watching these films fascinated by the way these men and women dressed.
I always wanted to dress with the same kind of style as the actors I saw on screen, and I have been disappointed that society seems to be falling further and further away from such style and class.
This morning, as I slowly woke up from a full night of sleep, I was scanning Tumblr and Pinterest for old photos of style and class. Here are a few of my favorites.
Carry Grant is the definition of sophistication and class. (1950’s)
I wish we wore more hats and suites in daily life. (1937)
Dean Martin & Angie Dickinson on set. (1959)
Diana Rigg (1967)
Dating in the 1950’s was a lot different then today.
