Getting ready for a night out – the 1940s way What do you do when you get ready for a night out? Do you get ready in front of your dressing table, putting on your shapewear? Checkecking your make-up? This fab video shows a young woman get ready for a night out in the late Forties, from putting on her stockings to choosing her jewellery. A great watch! 6 Responses Martha Pennyman December 18th, 2013 Oh the fabulous sensation of rolling up your stockings. I still do that with my tights because it feels so glamorous! Whitney December 18th, 2013 This is amazing! And I now realize I may be wearing my girdle too low… Thrifty Vintage Chic December 18th, 2013 I would almost argue that this is more early 1950s (1949-1953’ish) from the shape wear alone, and then to look at the hair, plus the dress?!? If it really is a clip from the late 40s, then it seems like this is a glimpse into what would have been the newest couture trends being shown at that time, and only adapted by the mainstream within the coming couple of years! Just my humble opinion! 🙂 -Robin Lena December 19th, 2013 It really is a clip from the late 40s 🙂 Glamourdaze February 11th, 2014 Yep ..I can confirm its actually from 1947. A promo for the wonderful new rayon nylon! Lena February 11th, 2014 Thank you!
