Beeline Fashions Invitation, 1965 - Advertising Postcard

REMARK: Nothing screams high fashion venue more than a drop-ceiling and wood paneled basement outfitted with colonial-inspired furniture. The braided rug catwalk allows audience members to view the latest Beeline Fashions in the comfort of over-stuffed sofas and rocking chairs. This invitation postcard was mailed by Mary Leonard of Des Moines, Iowa, to Shirley Henderson of Waukee, Iowa; whether Mary and Shirley were friends or enemies is left to speculation.

TEXT ON REVERSE:

I've arranged to have a Beeline Fashion Show. I think it is a terrific way for a few of us to get together.

 

It will be a lot of fun seeing and perhaps even modeling the latest fashions.

 

I know we'll have a grand time if I can count on you to be there. If you want to bring a friend along . . . fine!
