Frederick's Of Hollywood Ripped Off Your Grandma, Back When She Dressed Sexy

Take a gander at page 24 of this vintage FOH catalog from 1964, scanned and uploaded by Flickr user “What Makes The Pie Shops Tick?”. Their 2-for-$17.99 deal is actually more expensive than buying the items individually. It’s good to know retailers are consistent, we guess.

Be sure to click through and read the marriage-hungry copy that describes the dresses—”the surest way to get to the altar… you’ll inherit a fortune… wasp-waisted!”
