Don’t be fooled by the title!

Thanks to Lizzie Bramlett from The Vintage Traveler™  I am now reading this fabulous book written in 1959 by Anne Fogarty, Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife.

Anne Fogarty, Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife.

I am really enjoying first paragraphs of Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife (which is now re-release), It’s so much fun! You could be surprise how even after all these years the attitudes towards selection of clothing, maintenance of clothing and dressing tips are very actual.

More about Anne Fogarty you may read in this post of Lizzie.

  1. The book is interesting as a period piece, and also as a look into the changing role of women. I think Leser’s book was a futile attempt on her part to convince women that the crinoline was not dead.

    Thanks so much for the links!

    • I love 50’s so it is for me interesting from this point of view as well. It is good to see how many things have changed for better.
      I love your blog and I think more people should read your posts – I love fashion history.

  2. That’s so funny that you’re reading that. I just can’t have a book with that title in my house, though it’s probably a really fun. I prefer Claire McCardell’s “What Shall I Wear?” from that era, which was written for a more modern woman.

    • I was thniking long before I have bought it – but it is fun.
      I will chack the book you mentioned as well – thanks for sharing.
      It is not as to read for advices/tips (only) – it is to read for a little fun/amuzement.
