Oh, I am absolutely dying over these pictures… ! They were originally posted on Kevin Kidney’s blog (which is ace). He used to be a designer at Disney, & a friend of his scrounged up these gems!

The editorial was originally published on April 9th 1961, in Midwest Magazine, a supplement of the Chicago Sun-Times. I think the title was STORYBOOK FASHIONS but I decided HALLUCINATING HOUSEWIVES DO DISNEYLAND was better!

Enjoy… & the captions, in italic, are from the original story!
