Feast for the eyes

Last night, while I was browsing online, I came across some old magazines such as Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar. I have a huge folder on my computer with vintage photos, adverts and editorials but covers are usually something hard to find (I only collect stuff from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and the 70’s; I don’t like 80’s magazines). So, I was sitting here looking at these covers, desperatly trying to save them on my computer(as if they ran away or something-paranoia, I know) and thinking…wow…how could something be so beautiful? The photos are just breathtaking, I loooove the make up, the clothes-you can imagine how I drool but my favourite thing has to be these women’s body shapes. Those tiny tiiiiiiiiiiny waists, always cinched with a belt are driving me nuts!

Here are some of my favourites…

Azi noapte, in timp ce bantuiam online, am gasit niste reviste vechi (scanari ma refer) ca Vogue sau Harper’s Bazaar. Tin in computer un folder imens cu poze, reclame si editoriale vintage dar din cate am observat eu, copertile sunt in general greu de gasit ( nu colectionez decat pe cele din anii 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 si 70; astea de la 80 in sus nu-mi plac deloc). Stateam lipita de ecran, uitandu-ma la coperti si incercand disperata sa le salvez ( de parca dispareau in secunda urmatoare sau cadea curentul-paranoia, da) si ma gandeam…wow…cum poate ceva sa fie atat de frumos? Fotografiile ma lasa fara grai, machiajul e splendid iar hainele…mai are rost sa spun cum imi ploua in gura? 🙂) Insa, ce imi place cel mai mult este forma corpului acestor femei. Taliile acelea miiiiiiici mici, intotdeauna incinse de o curea, ma obsedeaza!

Iata o parte din favoritele mele…

    Am fost ieri in AFI Cotroceni si am vazut ca mai au sticlele acelea de Cola in Real. Erau destul de multe 😛

    Andreea, am vazut ca ai intrebat de sticlele de la Coca-Cola. Le poti gasi si in magazinele Angst, sunt prin tot orasul, chiar daca momentan se intampla sa nu la aiba in stoc sigur vor mai aduce.:)

    these are indeed fabulous! those were wonderful times with wonderful fashion, but, hey, it's every decade with it's own style! I bet you'll be nostalgic over the 2000's magazines in 30 years time 🙂

    OMG you have a treasure in your computer! O.O Where on Earth did you find them? They are simply gorgeous, I am so in love with old stuff, especially back in the '20s or '30s. I collect editorials too, but never this old, can't seem to find.

    love, M

    Tin minte ca a venit o colega de a noastra o data la facultate care are legaturi pe la magazinele de antichitati (deci ea se imbraca integral in vintage, nu o vad cu nimic modern pe ea, are un stil genial) a venit deci, cu o revista de moda de prin 1890 si era absolut O.O ! Geniala! Era in germana, si niste ilustratii superbe, vroiam sa i-o fur, haha :))

    Great collection 😀 You can usually find vintage vogue on ebay uk for 10-20 pounds, but the really rare ones are 50-100 pounds (I'll stick to the covers too for now)

  16. mai 26, 2011 / 2:01 pm

    @Cristina: Why do they have yo be so expensive? :((

  17. mai 27, 2011 / 6:36 am

    wow even though these front covers are now considered 'vintage' they are still really inspirational- the colours are still amazing and the styles still fabulous. Thank you for sharing! You are so stylish!

    Come follow my blog 🙂
