A complete collection of #vintagejoseforiginals California girls of the Months aka Mushroom Girls. My grandmother had one for each of her 4 daughters but they all got damaged during the 1989 earthquake. Their beautiful faces stayed in my memory and I was finally able to complete the collection from scratch #1950s#thingsicollect
How cute is this?! SO CUTE!
Adorable crisp cotton #1950s#sundress in black & white #polkadots with super skinny black straps, fitted bodice with scooped neckline, but what makes this SO fantastic is that skirt!! ✨
Huge #circleskirt with #boxpleats that reveal vertical black & white #stripes !! ✨
This beauty was home-seen, it's unlined with metal back zip, & measures 34 in bust, 26 in waist, hips are oh-so-free, 16 in from top of the shoulder to waist,& 28.5 in from waist to hem.
A few faint spots on the bodice, as shown, otherwise it looks unworn!

“I say not 50 percent of what I believe politically, for instance, lest my words be exaggerated or misinterpreted beyond all reason. But when it comes to the film industry, I’m part of it. It’s like my family, and I’ll say what I please about it, any time, any place.” -Bette, in a 1950 interview with Hedda Hopper (photographed in 1983) 💛
Hilarious letter written to director Bretaine Windust (“Windie”) from Bette, dated Feb. 6th, 1950 |
There are no initials on this thermos-bottle case (which can also be used as a golf-ball carrier, footstool, paperweight for blueprints, umbrella stand, something to accidentally drop on the toes of unpleasant people during arguments, something to hide behind while searching for the names of people you are about to introduce, superb storage place for scarves, tennis socks, useful rags, rain hats, gardening gloves, all kind of mittens, potatoes, sockies, bulbs, and marshmallows) because I wasn’t certain you wanted one of these things for yourself, or for someone else, or whether or not you admired my case simply to endear yourself to me before launching into a trying afternoon’s work. I shall perfectly understand if you return it (Bon Voyage Shop, Beverly Hills). For one thing, it is bound to stretch the area above the hand you carry it with several inches, flatten your head if you like to carry things on your head, and it will certainly make your car lean slightly to the right, wearing down the tires on that side, heaven only knows what would happen if you and the case are on the same side of the car. It is not beautifully wrapped because I was afraid that if I gave it to you in the box it came in you would think that I had given you an electric quilt, or a portable television set, both of which might have had a disastrous effect on your ulcer....” ✨
