"(Here is a collage and picture) from the German youth magazine
(number 22), first October issue, 1992.

The article "Abschlussball" ("the ball after examinations"), gave suggestions and recommendations for party dresses."





Jörg sends this picture of the petticoat girl Annette.
Her hobbies are fashion and lifestyle of the fifties.

The picture was published in the German youth magazine

Today at work I was looking thru some Reminisce magazines [ED: nice work if you can get it!] and in the Dec 2003 issue found this sweet photo.   Giggle, only the name matches mine - I'm not the lucky girl in the picture.   It was part of a two page article about Christmas in the 1950s and in one paragraph said 'We all dressed in our new clothes. I remember one dress with a red velvet top and a white organza skirt with a velvet pattern on it that I wore over a huge petticoat.' 
Photo is of a Denise Cassino, Conifer, Colorado."

"Amazing ad that ran in the April 2007 issue of San Francisco magazine. In case you get your hands on a copy, it's on page 45!"




Mid 1950s?
