Look, it's a treasure! They are all from 1954 apart from 2 that were from the year after. This magazine is called Kvinner og Klær (Women and clothing) and it's still very popular today under the name KK. I didn't have nearly enough time to read them all, so they are waiting for me till the next time I go there. But I did snap some pictures of the articles inside that I wanted to share.
|Love the dress to the left, and check out the purse to the right!|
|"Summery coctail with 4 ingredients"|
|"Norwegian women and French clothing"|
|Advice on what to bring with you for summer vacation|
|"Summer in sight" - And is that Queen Elizabeth to the right?|
|Ideas on what to wear to the beach. That polkadot explosion is fantastic!|
|"Bring your vanity to the countryside"|
|Crownprincess Märtha of Norway died in April 1954|
|Each issue of KK had loads of patterns advertised inside of them that you could order through the magazine|
|"Wrap a shawl around your shoulders"|
I look forward to give them a more thorough read when I get the chance! As much as I love looking at the pictures the very best part was reading the housewife advice column, where people could send in their tips and tricks. It really made it clear how they made a little last a long way. This one lady told the story of when she accidentially broke a candle in two, but with a bit of cleverness was able to mend it. And you almost couldn't tell!
