Rene Bouche: Fashion Illustration from 1956

It's time to be thinking ahead about the holidays, so I am posting this fashion illustration as a reminder to all of us: plan ahead!

This terrific 50s fashion illustration is by Rene(RR) Bouche and it certainly gets one in the mood for holiday elegance and sophistication. For me, while I personally won't try to re-capture this look, a rich red pashmina might be just the thing to add to my wardrobe this year.

Here's the full 1956 illustration, so you can see the rest of this page:

I like the way the scarf is worn.....may give that a try.

Yes, but I would have to pin it in place or risk fiddling with it all night so it wouldn't fall into the soup!
