Victoria - A Return to Loveliness

I'm joining Kathy at A Delightsome Life and her A Return to Loveliness meme. Click on her name to see other beautiful articles on the Victoria magazines published back in the 80s and 90s.
While browsing through my collection of Victoria's I came across this lovely May 1991 issue with this breathtaking cover and knew I must share it with all of you. Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.

A twelve-page spread with Toshi Otsuki's photography is absolutely beautiful!




The wedding pictures are amazing!

On The First Day of May:

Even the ads are beautiful:

I hope you enjoyed seeing these pretty pages from nineteen years ago! Timeless beauty!

Have a happy day!

God Bless.

Katherine

I remember the early Victoris magazines and thought my world had changed for the better. I loved the filmy photos, beautiful dresses and ads that didn't look like advertising. I only kept one and sold the rest after many years. It was the one that introduced me to Susan Rios, who won my heart forever. I have several of her lithographs and can never part with them.

What you been up to? This reminds me of Southern Lady Magazine. Have you seen one of those.
Our fashion show theme at state conference this year is '20s. That long waisted dress there would do, wouldn't it?

Your featured issue is from before I started reading Victoria so I enjoyed seeing the pages of it very much.
