I guess we could all be costume designers — just look at the hat in this photo!
a vintage 1935 photograph from Fox Film Corp’s “George White’s Scandals of 1935.” An art deco musical revue that captures the wild revels of the burlesque / vaudeville acts championed by George White, this features a scandoll (identified as Peggy Mosely) showing off her rare bird fashions in a gorgeous art deco gown.
An original vintage photograph featuring Inez Courtney in a surprisingly cool machine age “airplane hat”, circa 1930.
Typewritten press snipe on verso reads “INEZ COURTNEY? featured in First National’s Loose Ankles and Spring is here does right by her art and poses in an airplane hat. And do you still wonder if the movie actresses earn their money?” Measures 8″ x 10″ and stamped on verso with Culver Pictures archive information.
An ad for a sterling silver saddle ring. Circa 1947.
I still yearn to see Sir Oliver T. Puddington in lederhosen — but that doesn’t mean I am also not enthralled by the idea of seeing our Basset Hound in a kilt. Bonus points for being able to also get the other pets into the action, or portrait, as the case may be. Custom pet portraits by Fotos 2 Art.
It’s been cold outside, right? So while you’ve been dreaming of Summer, why not spend the time knitting your own red, white, and blue fashions for the Fourth Of July? Mom and daughter get a pair of matching sundresses. But poor dad has to suffer in a real sweater. …Maybe he just got a real bad sunburn while yachting and feels chilled. Anyway, dad’s pattern is free for you today. The mother-daughter dress patterns are for sale here.
Two of the frilliest kitsch knit sweaters we ever did see. Digital patterns for sale here.
Tamara Desni and her dogs, all dolled up for the day. Via.
But he wore his Superman tie and pretended that’s what the fuss was all about. Via.
That’s Marge Redmond, the actress who played Sister Jacqueline in The Flying Nun, sporting a very kitschy robe while sitting at the makeup mirror. This photo was part of an article in Inside Movie Magazine, November 1968.
Once upon a time, Redmond was flying high as the wife of Jack Weston; but they would divorce and Redmond would not remarry. (At least she has not yet.) The divorce must have come some time after this 1981 article about Redmond and Weston. In that People article, Redmond & Weston (which sounds like some old vaudeville act) discuss how much they disliked living in L.A. Redmond said, “All they were making were Westerns and gangster shows and the women were all 16 or 60. I’m glad I got out when the jiggle started. TV is for those girls with the big boobs.” Kind of funny Redmond would knock “jiggles” when she was at that time playing Sarah Tucker, the pudding in a cloud lady, for Cool Whip.
