This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Retro Weight Gain Ads For Women

Hello and welcome to my Nostalgic Series, It’s a weekly series that will focus on the bygone era. The era of all things we consider  vintage and old. This will look at the era between 1900-1980′s, the things we can look back on with sentimental value and wonder where the good old day gone too.
I will be doing shopping pages, features and I also will be using my youtube channel to do some tutorials and interviews videos. I’ll be featuring vintage collectors from all walk of life, I also be running fun competitions and games for you to get involved.
If you would like to get involved if you have an online vintage shop on Etsy or Ebay or know someone who will love too get involved then please feel free to email: annalisa.nuttall@gmail.com. I say more the merrier.

Here’s some early retro advertisements asking women to put on some weight, that being skinny is wrong. It was perceived at that time being skinny was seen to be ‘lower class’, if you had good enough of fat on you then you was from a well-fed rich higher class family. A little backward in this modern world don’t you think? It’s a hard concept to gasp when now food is openly available and with many people now to be consider obese but that was the view in that time period. These advertisements do date back as far as 1900s and was published in newspapers and magazine right up to 1980s, it was a way to shame women who didn’t have the curve or the buxom cleavages.

    Skinny girls don’t have oomph!? Oh boy. It’s nice that they weren’t encouraging women to be skinny (like today) but if you have a naturally smaller frame it can’t be helped. All women are real women, regardless of their shape or size!

    Wow, so interesting. But in one way, nothing has changed… there’s still that crazy pressure for women to have to conform to whatever is deemed fashionable.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this Anna. I think as long as your healthy than size shouldn’t matter. What is the ideal woman size? I don’t believe there is one, people always consider other women as too slim or too big etc, xoxo.
