Summer Fashion Guide from the 60s

I discovered this Summer Fashion Guide, supplement to Femina & Woman’s Life Magazine August 1964, while scratching around through drawers of junk at my dad’s house (I get my hoarding talent from him).

The pictures in it are beautiful and when reading the descriptions and original prices in it I feel like I am transported into a twilight zone in another time! Although there were some ghastly things happening in South Africa during the sixties (Apartheid had been going for almost two decades and women still belonged in the kitchen), the fashion was at least amazing!
