Coke Bottle on a Cookie Sheet

This postcard is one of my "cyber" collection.  The costumes the wedding party wear here are just fascinating.  The Groom's short pants, shoes and extraordinary head gear truly catch my attention--and why is there an umbrella hanging from his coat pocket?

The bride's dress and lace are exquisite--but that hat!  I am sure it was considered the height of fashion then, but to me it looks like she's wearing a coke bottle on a cookie sheet.  I find myself wondering how she was able to keep it on--perhaps that is why she has such great posture!

I apologize if my observations offend anyone because of traditional dress ideals.  The truth is, the fashion of yesteryear nearly always has something over which to smile.

But don't forget - today's fashions have much to laugh about too! Especially if you are looking at the runway designs... :)

I love your description - coke bottle on a cookie sheet indeed! Giggle.

What Shaunna said is so true ... I mean what if the people in that picture were to see some of the clothing of today! Thong underwear and those weird bullet-shaped bras worn on the outside come to mind ...

They are quite unusual! Looks like they are wearing wooden shoes too.
