Helpful Hints from 1954

I recently purchased a book called "Clothes For You" at an antique store for 50c. The book is from 1954, and was written by Mildred Graves Ryan and Velma Phillips. Yes, Mildred and Velma. It is full of amusing photos and tips.

The first chapter is called "What Can You Do To Be More Attractive?" and begins with this before and after photo to inspire you to read on.

A helpful tip for picking up an item from the floor. And don't forget to smile!

This is a good one.

This is my favorite tip of all.
And the funny thing is, in the front of the book someone has written "Home Economics 11", so this was actually required reading at the time. For your homework tonight girls, I want you to go home and give yourselves a spanking and then hang off the end of the sofa and brush your hair...
Anyway, I thought you would enjoy.
