The Wannabe Craftster

The Highs and Lows of a Fashionista and Craftster Wannabe

Find of the Day

I am not even sure what to say about this.  The name of these unfortunate sandals….  I don’t allow anyone to say it near me (different spelling), because it just creeps me out.  This, however, had to be shared.  Found it while surfing for 70s fashions.

Claire McCardell

Inspired by this post at Dress A Day, I began doing a little research on Claire McCardell.

I must confess, I’d never heard of her. What a shame. You’ll think so too when you read this….

Scroll down and don’t miss the article at TIME magazine. Incredible that even in the world of fashion, women don’t get proper credit. We should all know this woman’s name, because like as not, many of us are wearing clothes that she inspired. I never got a real idea of what American Sportswear was all about UNTIL I read about its history and the major role Claire McCardell played.
