She is Really A Glamorous Creature

What is this "glamour"? Nancy Tailor has the answer. At least she did in 1962. From a set of Beauty guides we have this list of "trappings of glamour". 
"For glamour, dear girl is for the men...designed to delight and enchant them into a state of remind them forcibly of the difference between the sexes."
  1. Laces
  2. Lingerie touches
  3. Furs...soft and flattering
  4. Beautiful jewelry
  5. Flowers
  6. Perfume - a suggestion of fragrance, not a bath in it
  7. Giddy hats...very flattering hats
  8. Eye makeup...that adds intrigue or mystery - tastefully applied
  9. Very sheer hose
  10. Tall, thin heels
  11. Soft glossy hair
  12. Intense color
  13. Dark, dramatic colors
  14. Feminine pastels
  15. Conversation pieces in accessories

  1. "Soft, glossy hair"? I remember these styles and there was nothing "soft" about them. Only heavy teasing (backcombing) and hairspray achieved them.
