I’ve finished uni for the year, so naturally I’ve been browsing my google reader with fierce intensity. Here are some things I’ve found pretty and/or interesting.
- Edwardian Promenade writes an interesting history of the “hobble garter”, a piece of antique lingerie I was not yet acquainted with, and also posted an overview of changes in corset styles
- This post about pinafores by Jitterbug Doll made me even more desperate to purchase one – the post is sort of a buffet of pinafores
- Oh my god, imagine visiting this “iCake” pop up store in London selling Apple-themed cakes
- Two more posts were written about the criticism of vintage as “unoriginal and derivative” by Tuppence Ha’Penny and Eclectic Ephemera
- Zero at the Bone wrote a very intelligent post about sexuality, and I also developed a bit of a feminist crush on Jaclyn Friedman: check out this interview with her about “fucking while feminist”, and her essay “My Sluthood, Myself”
- If you’re in London, you need to get yourself on the guest list for Dita von Teese’s pop up speakeasy bar which will open on November 29
- I found this handy guide to Boston’s vintage stores, which is a good thing because I’ll totally be there in January – does anyone else know Boston?
Ok that’s all. As a bonus photo, here’s a shot from my jaunt to France in June/July that I recently unearthed:
