I wanted to make a nice fun post for all of you, and with now being crunch time for me with finals this week, this is the perfect time to do it.
You can learn a lot about a particular era’s culture and influences of the time just by looking at vintage ads. You can also gleam a lot about what looks were popular and what was “important” to women at the time. Plus some of these ads are just works of art in their own right. The Guerlain ad you are about to see is something I want to frame and put up on my wall! And of course some are just ludicrous – like giving your infant cola as early as possible for their best health and development. No matter how inane any vintage ad may seem, each offers their own glimpse into the eras we love!
