In 1948, my mother graduated high school and went to work as a secretary in Manhattan. She continued working until she got married and moved away in 1962. During that period, she accumulated closets full of stunning dresses, suits, sweaters, purses, belts, hats, gloves, coats, lingerie and accessories that were all from the New Look period. It was all bought new in stores either in New York City or on a trip to Europe in 1959.
