Yes, this IS the blog that once brought you politics and news. If you’re still after that head over to

The 1950s was a time of dull fashion, dull schooling, dull city planning* and dull politics. How did the population manage to muddle through their dull existence without the urge to throw their dull selves under a dull truck?

Check out their (f)abs!

So even though your dull PM was making dull speeches about dull education in his dull suit in the dull capital city, you could still be happy your clothes were that little bit more radiant than those of the next person. Just grab Fab!

*A lot of development of Canberra was completed or started in the 1950s.
