A tribute to the American Teenager:1940’s Style.(I made this for my mom who was a “Bobby Soxer” herself:-) Basically it mean’t girls who wore short socks & saddle shoes & swooned over"Frankie" Sinatra. I included a short video clip to further explain this phenomenon. Enjoy!

    The saddle shoes were a little before my time but I hear it was a fun time. Nicely done. x

  • Thanks Lori;btw,my mom bought me a a pair of saddle shoes when I was in 1st Grade(this was back in the 70’s & they came back in style I guess because of ‘Happy Days"). Anyway,I would’ve liked them but they pinched my feet so I took them off & threw them onto someone’s lawn while I was walking home from school,which,of course,really pissed off my mom. But I guess she they brought back alot of memories for her,so that’s why she bought them for me. Have A Happy Mothers’ Day!

    Love the saddle shoes! And the 40’s are my favorite decade…I love the clothes, the hair and the music! Wonderful work!

  • Me Too:-) I mean the fashion & music,not the war part of it. Thanks so much Karen!
