Dream Dresses for Stylish Stouts

If you order clever "Dream Dresses for Stylish Stouts" from Janne of Hollywood Dresses you can "camouflage those extra pounds". Which is a good thing because you need "Youthful ideas of slender grace that are so utterly figure flattering you'll love them."

But most importantly you should expect an "Atomic Change"!
This ad is from 1946 and 'Atomic' anything seemed like a good thing. But I don't think you'd walk down the street in your new dress and Mable would comment "Why just look at your Atomic Change!"

Joan Leslie - True Experiences Magazine - 1946

This is the lovely Joan Leslie on the cover of the September 1946 issue of True Experiences magazine. She's appearing in Warner Bros. production "Two Guys From Milwaukee".

Doesn't she look snappy? The military influence shows in the double breasted suit jacket with crisp collar and cuffs. Plus there is the eagle on her purse. But her bright pink matching hat and bag are set off with that cluster of red (bakelite?) cherries. Fabulous!
