Couture Allure does a great regular segment on vintage clothing, priced for today - in light of inflation.
For example, these lovely dresses - which sold for $20.00 (left) and $15.00 (right) in 1961, would sell for $144.00 and $108.00 in today's dollar.
I imagine they are beautifully constructed (though what do I know, the photo doesn't clarify that) and, if I were to find them in Holt Renfrew new, I'd be paying 4 or 5 times that amount.
Nonetheless, it's fascinating to realize that $15.00 wasn't a cheap sum for clothing back then.
