Glamour Magazine 1944 - For The Girl With A Job

We are going to spend some time in 1944, looking at what a gal with a job was wearing and doing. She was doing it looking fabulous!
Many of the ads in this issue show the labels of the fashion houses or name the designers. Let's start with a few of these examples.


  1. The young ladies with jobs obviously had money to spend. A wool dress that cost $17.90 in 1944 was a very expensive dress. And at the same time, I would have thought that the country was still under coupon booklets at that point.

  2. I'm going to be sharing a lot from this magazine and you'll see that the war was a definite factor. But I wonder if Glamour was the very high end...even today most women can't afford things shown in Glamour magazine.
    Also I see that some of the dresses shown were much cheaper, $4.00, $8.95. But then there's that muskrat fur coat. They don't tell us how much, but you will have that "Million-Dollar Look"!
