My brain has been living in the early 1970’s lately… High waisted jeans, lace tops, short dresses, gigantic trousers. And who better embodies that era of long hair and platforms than Jane Birkin. I’ve assembled some of my favorite images from around the internets, please enjoy “My mother was right: When you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is… Read more →
Inspiring for the simple reason that she clearly is much more committed to doing her crunches than you or I, today I am featuring Cher.

My friends know that I have a special place in my heart for the sort of craft that is ancient, unforgiving, and extremely time consuming.

I love looking at vintage lingerie; the shapes, the amazing laces, the embroideries. If you want to follow what I’m looking at for inspiration, I keep a vintage lingerie board on Pinterest. While this piece is lovely and would definitely work today, if go back before about 1900, undergarments were basically cut from a square, and depended on drawstrings… Read more →
The post Fit – Updating vintage lingerie styles with technology appeared first on Larkspur Organic Lingerie Online Shop.
Sorry, ladies, just experimenting with a little bit of clickbait. Everyone knows my fascination with vintage and historical lingerie, and I was doing a bit of research yesterday, and found some pretty amazing contributions that men have made to field in the 20th century.

The steps to this… Read more →

I love looking at amazing bits of craftsmanship, but I especially love it when someone puts a lot of time into something, well, a little more on the odd side.
