Vintage Catalogs

One of my dream wardrobes would be a closet full of vintage Fredericks of Hollywood clothing from the 1940's-1960's...chic and sexy- though, the odds of this ever happening is incredibly slim- I feel fortunate to own a book called Fredericks of Hollywood, 1947-1973: 26 Years of Mail Order Seduction which I can flip through for fashion inspiration. It would be fun to own one of the original catalogs. Here are two vintage Fredericks of Hollywood catalogs as well as some cute catalogs from department stores from the 1920's-1960's (well, in truth almost any vintage catalog would offer my dream wardrobe ;)
