Fashions, fads and slang. What we wear, what we say, and what makes us a little crazy tells a lot about a culture.
The Fifties was fundamentally a time of conformity. You won't find anything wild or risqué on these pages. Think of it as good, clean, wholesome stuff. Instead of lingerie think night shirts, instead of mini skirts, think at the knee length skirts and you'll get the idea.


About FASHION. Sorry, kids, but Grease was a movie. Most kids didn't look quite that cool. We dressed very conservatively. What is shown on these pages is an accurate representation of Fifties clothing.

About FADS. Before Beanie Babies and Pokemon, there were hula hoops and coonskin caps. We went just as nuts about these things, but we didn't have sheets and towels to match. Let alone video games.

About SLANG. There's nothing like a war to produce slang, but Korea wasn't enough. The Forties and the Sixties generated more of it, but we had enough to make us, you know, cool.


Enjoy and thanks for coming by!
