1950s teen summer dress fashion

I picked up a few of these vintage American Girl magazines a couple of years ago at an antique shop. Although they're Girl Scout magazines, written for young girls and teens, they have a lot of great vintage fashion articles and even a couple of retro hair styling tips throughout. I love to read old magazines and get a peek at the things people were interested in decades ago. Sometimes I even find little treasures in the form of photos or notes that the previous owner stuck in the pages and forgot about.  Here's a look inside the pages of American Girl Magazine from May of 1955. I hope you enjoy it!
