A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes...

For many years now I've been an admirer of Post Modern Jukebox, a group of musical geniuses who turn modern songs into vintage greats. On September 8th, they'll choose a winner for their #PMJSearch2017 and so I've put my name into the hat! Here is my entry:

1940s San Francisco

1940s San Francisco : Street Style  Each time I travel to a new city, being a woman in love with all things vintage, I can't help but wonder what the city streets looked like in the 1940s and 1950s. What was the street style like? San Francisco is a unique city, because of its famous weather. How did the wind and fog dictate street fashion? Clearly the hills might have had some influence ...

Thus far I've noticed the photos indicate two options: summer attire or completely bundled up in autumn fabrics. Sounds about right to me as during my visit here I've bounced from summer dress to sweater and scarf daily. In my research I've found most women wore hats and I can't help but think that many many bobby pins were harmed in the wearing of hats in this blustery land.

Today I'm venturing off into the city again, only this time to visit the Golden Gate Bridge. Hopefully I'll come away with something as fabulously iconic as history's babes of the 1940s!
