    For the Glamourous Vintage Photographer




    Advertisements
    Hey gals (and guys)
    I ran across this and couldn't help but post. It's a vintage camera that was made for ladies as it has a compact and lisptick included in the body! Quite pricey, but fun to know it exists:

    Oooh! It's darling!

    My cell phone has a mirror on it that I have occasionally used as a compact mirror -- it's funny to think someday young people might be clamoring to have such a mundane and rather silly item!

    That's amazing! I would never think to combine a camera, mirror, and lipstick holder, but I guess it would make sense... if you're going to be in the picture!

    If a camera company decided to do that with a modern digital camera, something tells me it wouldn't be a big hit.

    Golly, I bet quite a few modern women would be insulted if the manufacturers did that!

    I say, a girl's always got to have her lipstick and powder--might as well find creative places to stash these items!

    I'll have to hunt the library and see if I can find a picture I saw a while back of a chunky vintage gold bracelet that had 2 or 3 compartments for lipstick, maybe perfume and powder. I don't recall when it dated from exactly; may have been as early as the 20s, could have been as late as the 60s.

    Gosh, that was vague... I'm doing well today!
