Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, which means it’s officially summertime here in the United States. But perhaps you’ve fallen behind in the wardrobe department. Maybe your sundress game could use a little elevating. Well, why not take a page from this May 1958 issue of McCall’s, featuring “carefree” cottons?
Mall-goers now have one less option for racy nighties and polyestery butt floss, as—barring some eleventh-hour private equity savior—Frederick’s of Hollywood has filed for bankruptcy and plans to close its brick-and-mortar outposts.
Hey there, "fashion-conscious females"! Spring is coming, and wouldn't you like to update your closet with some new looks for the new season? Well, check out these looks via British Pathé, which are so sharp, "They might even encourage the flower children to wear shows."
Postmodern Jukebox performed a Motown-inspired cover of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" with Von Smith, and it's considerably less annoying than the original, which has only burrowed into your brain thanks to a diabolical pop formula concocted in the underground lair of Max Martin and Johan "Shellback" Schuster. But I…
As the months have turned increasingly warmer, Taylor Swift has been photographed more and more often out and about on the streets of New York City, wearing clothes. Distinctively put-together clothes.
This really puts the debate over the term "plus-size" in perspective: Here is an ad for Lane Bryant, from the back of the September 1922 Ladies Home Journal. Hey, stout women! Lane Bryant has the hot fashions you want!
I love vintage lingerie. Vintage-inspired, authentic vintage, vintage catalogs…taking a past look at women's undergarments is interesting not only from a fashion perspective, but also from a social or cultural one.
It's no secret that the menswear of the late 1960s and early 1970s was, frankly, awful. (All those synthetics and strange patterns—tsk tsk.) But it's easy to forget just how abysmal the hairstyles were, too. Who knew there were so many variations on the mullet?
It's time for another installment of Foods That Should Not Exist, and we're going back… way back.
It's been a big week for The National Enquirer (the magazine that I once got sent home for reading at school). The publication broke the news that Ellen's house is possibly haunted and alerted faithful readers to a big secret that Jimmy Fallon doesn't want you to know (he loves his wife and child!). And if that wasn't…
Few things are more luridly delightful than midcentury food porn—fishy Jell-Os, mayonnaise frosting, all canned everything, foods ground up and then moulded into the shapes of other foods. If you've ever flipped through your grandma's post-war Betty Crocker cookbook, then you know what I'm grimacing about. These are…
Before OMG meant "Oh My God," SWALK meant "Sealed With A Loving Kiss," ITALY meant "I Trust And Love You," EGYPT meant "Eager to Grab Your Pretty Tits." Your grandparents were pervs.
Sesame Street debuted in 1969 and was in full swing by the mid-seventies. The 1976 JC Penney Christmas catalog was all over it.
November brings brisk temperatures and chilly winds, but you can't sacrifice style for warmth! You're gonna need a sharp cover-up. Tailored coats with gold buttons and reversible rain capes? Yes, please.
Direct gaze, squared shoulders, ever-so-slightly "undone" hair: Take a minute and get to know the bad-ass women of 1970s Winston cigarette ads.
TGIF! It's time for another edition of Let's Shop. Today we travel back in time to 1983. The weather's turned cool, and after braiding each others' hair, we're going to collapse on the couch and watch Webster, Dallas and Falcon Crest. Better pick a pastel pullover. Which one do you want?
As previously mentioned, back issues of Photoplay have been archived online. A quick flip through of the January 1929 issue revealed a piece that feels chillingly current: It warns that women are putting their lives at risk when they try to be as skinny as Hollywood stars. We've been talking about this shit for 84…
