Isn’t it funny to think that smoking back then was acceptable and seen as rather glamorous, to the point they’ve taken the time to add this little detail to the cover of the magazine. How things considered controversial back then are completely normal these days, yet what could be seen as rather controversial these days was the norm back then.
I think that’s one of the reasons I really like collecting and reading these magazines, the social commentary alone is marvellous, and it’s fun to see how society’s views on certain things have changed.
Hats will be dramatic and lovely. Flowers, ribbons and yards and yards of veiling will give a garden party look to hats this summer. Large hats are so flattering to all ages and with the veiling, well, it gives added charm.
And look at those pretty shoes...
