Vintage Miscellany – March 13, 2016

It’s the 1940s.  If not for the big, happy smile on her face, you might suppose these women are running to escape some unknown menace.  Or maybe the water was colder than it looked and one big wave sent them scurrying for the comfort of a chenille beach cape.  Photos should come with a backstory!

And now for the news…

  2. Thanks for the alert about the fashion exhibition in Melbourne! I hadn’t heard anything about it here, and Melbourne is my closest city. WIll definitely check it out next time I go to the city.


  3. I just don’t get the copying thing. If someone’s a designer, presumably they have the ability to design something, and there’s a world of difference between being inspired by something and copying it.


  4. That photograph is just wonderful–what a great capture!

    Thank you for doing all this work. I would never have the time, but do enjoy going through the list.


  6. You are thorough and I take note of many of your suggestions for exhibitions etc. I just don’t’ make the time to implement! 😦

    I just found time to watch the video about recycling clothes into thread. My first thought that it was great that old T-shirts, ripped jeans and stained blouses were being recycled; but I was shocked to see what looked like unworn clothes being torn up.
    The comments of the people were revealing. Thanks for sharing this.
