Winter Fashion Furs & Foxy Ladies - Keeping Warm 50's 60's 70's!

Some Studio 54 disco style from a 1979 edition of The Australian Women's Weekly. The full length fox fur jackets are priced at $8500.00 each. Which in the late 1970's would buy you a new family car......and a deposit on a modest home.

Fury fonts and a modish look, note the purple knee high boots, The Australian Women's Weekly, 1964.

Fashion in Fur.The Australian Women's Weekly, 1954. A very "Red Riding Hood" cape with fur trimmed collar.

Settle for a smart, fur-lined  coat? From The Brisbane Courier Mail, 1934. McWhirters is described as "The Mecca for the Thrifty" in this depression era advertisement.
