sweater girl 1959 girl watching magazine

i became a little curious about this magazine cover from my sweater girl post which i'd randomly ran across through a google image search. i did a little digging and voila! found the whole issue online! the photos are great, but it's really worth a read, too.

Dear Girl Watcher,
My wardens who live in a small hick town in Iowa would not know me now. I dig this new off-beatnik jazz. I wear long black stockings, green makeup and pale rose lipstick. I'm just crazy for this Girl Watching dodge. I rent a pad here in Greenwich Village and spend most of my spare time arguing philosophy with other eggheads like myself. But now I'm all shook up inside. I've just fallen for an Ivy League type and he won't look.
