1940’s Look

There’s something about the 1940’s that exudes both elegance and determination.  While brothers, boyfriends and husbands served overseas, American women went to work in factories and offices – keeping both the economy and the war effort going.  And while they often performed very unglamorous jobs, many did so in full makeup and with perfectly styled […]
