Beautiful Girls in New York Monday 2 April, 2012 In Vintage street style circa 1944, photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt for a series called beautiful girls in new york for Life. i really think fourties style has to be one of my favourites, though perhaps women in new york have just always looked amazing.

Thank you for posting! cat catgotdressed.blogspot.com Joan 9 years ago Reply I love the fashion during the 40’s so elegant and modest. f 9 years ago Reply love the last two especially! wish we could wear dainty gloves everyday too… Carolyn 9 years ago Reply I’m with you there, Diana, 1930s & 40s are just style heaven. Incidentally, I live in London but my family live in Johannesburg and Cape Town – so I visit from time to time but they are always pretty quick visits – are the South Africans into their vintage – is there much vintage stock out there?

Kathleen Heffner 8 years ago Reply I really like the skirt and blouse outfit! i’m going to get one (or make it!) Michelle 8 years ago Reply Look at all the people in the back round too! Just as adorable. corinne phipps 8 years ago Reply i am completely breath taken with these dresses. What a wonderful tribute to simple, classy style. In fact, I like to see that these styles are making a strong comeback today. indreams 8 years ago Reply these are such lovely outfits! (and ladies, for that matter…) so interesting to see how many of them are either wearing or carrying their gloves, too. maybe that’ll be the next ‘ladylike’ addition to fashion we’ll see coming down the catwalks? (they are really practical, hmm.) Amanda M. 8 years ago Reply Alfred Eisenstaedt had truly impeccable taste in subjects and their clothing. I would wear every single thing (except the viking helmet/hat). P.S. Your blog is consistently fantastic. StyleSetGo.com 7 years ago Reply Nice, All are good but i liked the last one most.
