How To Use Your Hollywood Fashion Clip

Look what we just unearthed, SO FUN!  Absolutely love these illustrations so we thought we would share the brochure with you.... ...maybe you own one of these and have no idea what to do with you can wear it! It is a tri-fold brochure, though there is no date, the mod fashion and hair-dos dates it from the late 60's - early 70's. Let's dive in! Here is the first section ~ "for an elegant head style" "Follow the exact instructions for a Glamour bow using a 36" square scarf." This is so pretty! She looks like a flower with this style!

Don't Take Me Home

We've all had those days....dreading going home to maybe a tough conversation or burned dinner....but, usually, most of us can't wait to get home.  Not poor Augustus J. McCann. He hates his life, he hates his wife, and, probably, the creepy, giant mouthed baby sitting on his lap.

Great idea! What followed was a quite hilarious look at one Mr. McCann's poor, henpecked life. DON'T TAKE ME HOME A comic novelty song by Vincent Bryan & Harry Von Tilzer Augustus J.
