Haitian Fashion in the 1950’s: rocking those skirts and hats!

For a small scene, I wanted to look up some popular Haitian fashion from the 1950s, especially for well-to-do young women. I came across this delightful site kreyolicious.com that has loads of beautiful pictures of Haiti through the ages. It was even better than I imagined, and I have a very pretty imagination, so I had to share. Goodness, I love when research takes me exactly where I need to go.
