Paisley, Once More

I just HAD to.....okay? Because I keep finding more examples of paisley, and I just love it so much that I feel compelled to share them with you! Like this pretty paisley frock (made from a 1956 McCall's pattern, #3488):

A vintage dress with a matching turban:

And this gorgeous red paisley, from a 1967 Glamour Magazine:

And then there's this lovely head scarf on an equally lovely model:

Bright separates from Jane Colby. I LOVE the colors in this pattern!
My, oh, my; this shawl trimmed with purple fringe surely is a beauty!
The shawl reminded me of my vintage fringed scarf, below. I have shown this to you before in little glimpses, but I am not sure you all appreciated it's complete FABULOSITY! (Do you now?? I mean, come on! Do you?) It belonged to my mother-in-law, and I love it.
These next two were in Seventeen magazine (I love my early 70's magazines!), in an article titled "Paisley Peasants":

That's it for my latest Paisley Post.
But, you know me! I am just crazy enough to do it again.....

Just watched a couple of old "Bewitched" shows yesterday afternoon and Endora was all decked out in one in a lovely paisley print that could have been one of these. Love T
