How exciting! See the original photos behind those famous pinup paintings we all know and love. It’s interesting to see how figures were exaggerated to fit the 50’s American beauty ideal.
Miss Victory Violet reviewed a variety of foundation garments to show us which ones compliment her figure best under a vintage dress!
I personally loved the combination of a powerful waist cinching corset and a hip smoothing girdle by Rago Shapewear.

Your grandmother dressed better than you do! The Huffington Post shares 7 reasons why vintage fashion did it better. What ever happened to the quality of clothing, anyway?

The sight of a classic beauty from the past grabs our attention and admiration in a way that marketers love. Take a look behind the scenes to see the business that goes into using a dead celebrity to promote a brand.
Today, the marketing, licensing and commercial use of dead celebrities is an estimated $3.0 billion business. Our own payments to the beneficiaries of departed icons utilized in commercials have grown by nearly 20% in the past two years.
