This ad was in the September, 1963 issue of McCall's Magazine. It is slip # 2102, has a lovely applique trim and in "all the wonderful colors: blue, pink, honey and red. White too."
I found four of these awesome Lana Lobell mail-order catelogs full of color and Black and white Photographs of beautiful 1950s Fashions! One has up to 72 pages; all have circle and squawl skirts, dresses galore and a small section of nighties and lingerie. Most dresses average around $15.00 dollars, and a lovely swing coat can be had for under $30.00. The best part is the catalog's offer of a payment plan: "Buy today with 6 months to pay." I will be sure to include illustrations from within at a later date. For now, enjoy the covers!
