How to be More Attractive to Boys: in 1951

Hello all! So I pretty much had to buy this 1951 Senior Prom Magazine for it's very fantastic cover story of "How to be More Attractive to Boys." Above are a few of my favorite clippings. I think it's sooo incredibly interesting how different dating advice is in these 1950s magazines compared to what advice you might get in modern magazines such as Cosmo. According to this issue of Senior Prom some ways to more attractive are as follows:

1. Always be dressed in your best
2. Know how to set a fine table
3. Be a good cook (theres a section called "Beau-Catching Recipes ha)
3. Start a hobby (it gives some suggestions of join a sports team, start sewing, start a collection etc)
4. Pay attention to your voice (Titled how are your sound effects - do you talk in a baby voice? Nasal Twang? Slur your words too much? Work on "your sound" to make it as pleasant as possible)
5. Know how to talk to a dates parents
6. Don't be self centered
7. Always be Kind

On top of this great magazine I also found a 1960s womens "Trend" fashion magazine, about 6 really awesome vintage dresses, a pair of vintage shoes and two super cute vintage hats....! Good day!! Some of it was for me and some for the shop so I am sure you will be seeing much of it soon :)
