Freewheeling Fun Fashions - Scoops of the Month

One of three spreads from a 1959 Mademoiselle magazine, titled "Scoops of the Month", how appropriate for me? "Summer is icumen in" and from the looks of things it's sure to be a time of literally kicking up one's heels, a giddy kind of season when clothes should be chosen and worn for the pure fun of it!

Accessories to the fact of your new MG; white leather sandals, Oomphies Cloudhoppers, plastic 'straw' purse with watch (also seen in last picture), by Sheffield; sun hat with isinglass windshield, Charmer shirt, flowered Jamaica shorts, both cotton, Turner Togs.

It's off to the berry patch - in a Thunderbird - for the sweetest crop of strawberries yet harvested, planted on a little-girl party dress of black and white striped cotton, fenced in with black lace that aprons over the gathered skirt and high-necked bodice. Sleeves are fitted. By Tailored Jr. Thunderbird by Ford.

A fury of blue flung is gay print over a white basket-weave background of Orlon and wool - it's a cardigan jacket buttoned up with 'pearls' by Glentex, Plymouth's Sport Fury.

A summer triumph; this sprig of a dress, barely caught at the shoulders, then tucked and tendered to the tiny waist with three button rows - skirted in double box pleats by Betty Barclay of Arnel and Cotton. Triumph TR-3.

What prettier way to spin through summer evenings? A dance dress in white over pastel - tier upon tier of embroidered cotton organdy over taffeta, tapering to a strapless bodice gathered in front for fullness and velvet bowed. By Dansant. Rambler American.

We'll share more of this Scoops feature on Monday. Until then, have a wonderful weekend!
