A second glance at this ad reveals that the models are not wearing a romper and sundress, but separates. Mix and match a blouse, shorts, camisole, skirt, stole, or pedal pushers in purple, pink, yellow or blue to complete your cotton summer wardrobe. Most of these Rockland Sportswear items retailed for under $5.00 each in 1951 when this ad was published in the May Glamour magazine.
