    In awe! So barring one’s midriff isn’t a fully modern phenomena. Also, I’m seeing some early Madonna here..

    Funny how all hot trends – high waist, bare middle, colour blocking, platform sandals – are united in this shot!

    I want to wear this look now. She looks so comfortable in her clothes and in her own skin. I especially love the wide leg trousers paired with the crop top!

    Gorgeous – the midriff is so elegant and ‘modern’. Love the masculine pants, too…

    What a great photo! Love the outfit! Showing some mid-section skin seems very ahead of her time.

    Sexy. Seems courageous for the day and time. I wonder if that is indeed so.

    This could easily be Madonna during the filming of “A League of Their Own”.

    This outfit would look so retro-chic today.

    I wonder how common it was to wear midriff baring tops back then, probably not very. I wonder what the story behind that is, maybe she was a nonconformist and very adventurous woman. I was wondering, where do you get all of your vintage photos.

    What a knockout outfit! And it’s clear the woman in the photo understands how to put pieces together to play up proportions beautifully.

    The top is great, the whole thing is very elegant…..but I’m particularly digging how she is rocking that snood! :)

    Gee, the break on the shoe is perfect.
    These pants always come back into style. Mine were made from light mens’ suiting back in the 70s. Retro then!
    The high waist is v. comfortable.

    Thanks for the lovely comments. I sent this photo in a while ago and was really excited to see it get chosen. This is a photo of my grandmother Rita in Chicago, probably in the early 40′s. I asked my mother about the photo and the outfit and while she can only speculate, she suspects that this outfit would have been fairly adventurous, although not outrageous. In my mom’s words, her (Rita’s) mother probably wouldn’t have been very happy about it. Her family didn’t have much money, but she tried to be fashion-forward when she could and I’ve heard that she was a talented seamstress. Also, I was told that she was a big fan of Katharine Hepburn, which might explain the menswear trousers.
