1968 Sears Spring Summer Catalog: Purses, Shoes and Gloves

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.

1965 Hats, Shoes, Purses, & Gloves

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.
