What's featured in my Etsy shop this week?

These are the four vintage ads I've chosen to feature in my etsy shop this week.  I decided to go with a "blue" theme:

 Hardy Amies Blue & White Striped Cotton Evening Dress
Harpers Bazaar UK
March 1947
Etsy Listing #72786157

Sir Edwin Hardy Amies,(17 July 1909 - 5 March 2003), was a British fashion designer, best known for being the dress designer for HM Queen Elizabeth II.   

In 1946 he established his own couture fashion house business, Hardy Amies Ltd, after buying the bombed out shell of a house that was №14 Savile Row. Although Savile Row is the home of English bespoke tailoring, the Hardy Amies brand developed to become known for its classic and beautifully tailored clothes for both men and women.  

 Simon Massey Coat Dress
Harpers Bazaar UK
September 1947

 Wetherall Waterproof Fine Woollen Coat
Harpers Bazaar UK
January 1949

 Edwards & Holms Black High Heel Shoes
Harpers Bazaar UK
August 1948

Stop by the shop and check out the 150+ ads I've listed so far this long holiday weekend!  And, there's even more to come the next couple of days.
