Image from “Police Detective” circa 1956

Usually when you see those images from the 50’s and 60’s, they almost look like costumes from period shows and films like Mad Men, more than something you’d wear.

I found this image—which I’m tempted to frame—from a crime magazine lying around my apartment from the 50’s (yes, I hord all things vintage) and love that it doesn’t look like the typical images from that era. It’s somewhat rebellious in its style, looking like it could be someone today photographed in black and white.

At a closer look, even that bracelet is something I would wear. I’m currently obsessed with all things snake jewelry, as you can see by the snake necklace that I styled with for this shot. Now you can be obsessed too, as they are everywhere now. Check out the gorgeous snake bracelets below that I hand picked just for you.
