The first one is called "Wirtschaftswundermuseum", that means "economic miracle"...In the early 50s the german "economic miracle" began. You can see many old commercials, most of them scream:" Hurry up, all women back to the kitchen!"
This picture says these domestic appliances are the dream of every bride...times have changed :-)
...here´s a commerical from a catalog company from 1954:
I wish Neckermann would reproduce these stunning suits and dresses...*swoon*
The other site is an adorable collection of old fashion magazines from 1950 - 1961!
These pictures are from the "Herbst/Winter 1954"section...Fall/winter fashion ;-)
...and while you get inspired by these amazing fashion pictures, I use Cyndi Lauper and the early Madonna for my inspiration...It´s a 80s theme party...Miss Pink Plastic and her boyfriend changed the theme...The first theme was "50s/60s Las Vegas"...I would prefer that ;-)
