I keep finding more angora sweaters in my perusing of the late ’60s Seventeen magazines! I guess I never realized at the time, how fashionable angora was then. Anyway, I thought I’d share several more pics that I thought were so pretty.
Pretty in Pink Angora! This is Tina McDonough, an award-winning ballerina from Seattle in a really cute fluffy pink angora mini dress. So sweet and feminine. (Seventeen magazine, January 1969.)
Model Lucy Angle in a fluffy white angora sweater. (Seventeen magazine, December 1968.)
Teen models in green and lavender angora sweaters. (Seventeen magazine, August, 1970.)
Thank you so very much for your hard work. These are some great scans and bring back some fond(le) mammories.
Too funny! 😀
You are very welcome — thankfully I actually enjoy flipping through stacks of old magazines, even though my allergies don’t.
Oh those fuzzy days never go!
I still have my pale yellow angora halter dress and bolero from my prom way back then. And wore it again after my wedding as we left on our honeymoon and some evenings during!!!
Though it’s a little small for me now, it does stretch quite well and have worn it a few times in private on our aniversaries much to my husbands delight as he takes perticuar delight in caressing and cuddling me when I’m all furry soft, calling me his fluffy bunny as he gets all amorous!
Angora has always kept the sparkle/tickle in my marrage!
Yes, I think angora has magical properties and vintage angora is the BEST!
I am formerly Tina McDonough! My name changed to Peterson when I got married. A friend of mine saw your posting on Angora sweaters and brought this to my attention today! So fun!
Wow, that is amazing! Your photo was so elegant and pretty. Do you still live in Seattle? I grew up in Seattle and still live in the area. We’re probably about the same age. Thanks for reaching out!
