If these photos had been from a Nieman Marcus catalog, or even a Spiegel, I probably would have said “handbags” instead of purses. But the source is Sears, and we called them “purses”.
I have always loved these green high heels. If they were still available and I was 30 years younger, I’d buy them. And did you notice that there was a purse to match every color?
The ubiquitous daisy, even in black and white.
One difference in footwear is that there were only a page or two of sandals then. They weren’t nearly as common then as they are now.
Here are more photographs from the 1965 Montgomery Ward Fall/Winter catalog.
Gorgeous, but I couldn’t walk in them. It took a lot of poise. Girls actually practiced back then.
Heels a bit lower, but these are still beautiful shoes.
This is not a great photo, but it was the only page with jewelry. I thought it might help someone date their mother’s jewelry or something they find at the antique mall.
My mother wore kid gloves like these. Very elegant.
