    Old Navy Harper Pants - Close to 1950s Cigarette Pants?

    The description on the link is mid rise. The 1950s version is a high waist. I think a mid rise is 9 1/2" and a high waist is a minimum of 12". They are very reasonably priced and come in a variety of colors which is nice. You can easily pull off a vintage inspired look with them. I'm...

    When did the pin-up look take over the vintage esthetic?

    This is a very interesting thread ladies. I would describe my own style as retro or vintage inspired. I have noticed, as Lady Day has that all the big producers of repro have gone over the top with a cartoonish pinup style. (I'm glad I'm not the only one. I was afraid I was getting old fast)...

    The Middy Thread

    Oh Papermoon I'm so sorry that has happened. The good thing is it that's its hair and will grow back. I did have a similar experience. My hair is all one length usually with a tiny bit of "face framing" layers in the front. The gal with the scissors in her hand went a bit nutty and gave me...

    Dying bras

    I have tried it on a few without paying attention to the fabric content and the proper dye. I used rit dye and the results are okay. Due to the different textures and fabric on most bras, each part comes out a slightly different shade. The lace is usually lighter, the straps and waistbands...

    Experience with "Stop Staring" Brand

    Hi, I like Stop Staring. The quality is very good and the designs are retro style without being costume-y. I wear many of them to work. For a woman of 5'7" the length will be probably be perfect. The bust lines are designed to be flattering for most with a wrap or rouching. If you are...

    I agree -Sheeplady is a great choice. May I also say that the decision to make a front parlor for all and the powder room women only was a great one as well. Thank you

    Men in the PR -- Poll (WOMEN ONLY)

    Alice, you are making me rethink my no answer. I'm constantly around more men than women and I'm comfortable with it. I didn't give thought to ladies that aren't in the same type of environment. If more ladies will be comfortable posting without the men, than I say "yes".
