The Sunshine State

In just a few weeks, I'll be heading to Florida! All of my wardrobe day dreamings have been about sunshine and beaches! I stumbled upon a great catalog of Florida Fashions from the 1950s and just had to share!

Playsuits galore!

Fun printed skirts!

And it wouldn't be a Florida magazine without a nautical dress!

Great florals and sunny yellows.

And, of course, glamorous 50s swimsuits!

Have you started planning your summer vacation yet?


  1. Florida Fashions really produced some fantastic styles! I like their offerings every bit as much as those from Lana Lobell.

    Have a safe, super lovely trip!!!

  2. oh! how lucky you are, cant wait to see some of what you create. i just love those circle skirts. SO ADORABLE. i really need to make some like that... too bad kansas is so windy lol

  3. LOVE!!!! My vacation has just finished... that was so nice to enjoy vintage shopping in Portland-Seattle, to feel californian sun and have fun with friends at Viva Las Vegas!!!!
    Florida is also so nice, I'm sure you will enjoy it very much... ENJOY!

  4. Oh goodness, I need that black gingham swimsuit right now! Thanks for sharing these cute outfits, and you enjoy your vacation!

  5. Such perfection! I adore those dresses! This reminds me that just how badly I need to learn to sew... then I'd wear nothing but this style.
