    Halston, Paris, 1960. 

    I was curious what exact era it is that’s coming back. Looking at this, right now we’re in love with 1960…

    Vintage fatshion!

    I’m b46 / w36 / h46, wear a UK size 18 to 20 and I dress in vintage from the 1930s and 1940s on a daily basis.

    Don’t let anyone tell you that plus sized vintage doesn’t exist because that is just bullshit.

    Reporters at a baseball game by G. G. Bain, 1910-1915

    Just watched “Woman of the Year”, at which we see some of this in action. It’s got a fun opening where our heroine, international correspondent & diplomat’s daughter, makes the comment that maybe the nation shouldn’t be continuing baseball during a war crisis.

    The blatant ignorance of this comment brings our hero, sports reporter, to take her to a game.

    The movie goes a bit downhill from there—I feel that women’s rights are more a token issue (rather than His Girl Friday’s “deal with it” attitude) and the movie fizzles rather than climaxing.

    But the world of baseball then looked fascinating.

    From the submitter howpaperrusts:

    "Pantomimist" 1870s, tintypes of Fawdon Vokes, né Walter Fawdon (from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Bulletin, Fall 2012)

    "[He] joined the ranks of the Vokes Family, a group of London performers who toured the United States beginning in 1872. Somewhere on tour, perhaps in Philadelphia, Vokes stopped at a portrait studio to act his roles before the camera."
