You have no idea how long I’ve been wanting to share this. Seriously, you cannot possibly know. But it’s finally upon us: my first article for Bustle was published today!
Dress: vintage, via brick-and-mortar store
Hat: vintage, thrifted
Everything else: thrifted
I am so excited. I got to write about an issue I hardly ever see addressed in the vintage community – and get paid to boot. The gist:
This is what every pinup enthusiast who “wishes women still dressed like ladies” fails to understand: Those “back in the day” women were never considered “ladies.” They were, in the eyes of much of the public, plain old whores. You cannot then simultaneously revere them and revile their present-day incarnations.
I had to get super fancy in my favorite vintage dress to honor the occasion.
