Vintage Ad of the Day



AnnQ said...

That's funny.... the "Marry a Millionaire" Look.

I remember my Mother telling me the more things change, the more they stay the same....I never knew what the heck she meant until I got a bit older.

Guess what I mean is, I was momentarily surprised at this ad, because I'd thought (for some strange reason) this mindset started when I was a kid....man, was I wrong! (and self-absorbed, too!) :-)

So...to marry a millionaire, you have to have really pointy boobies?

And a totally effed-up hat, apparently.

I've really considered buying a vintage pointy bra lately.

Not lyin'.

Tracey said...

Kelly: You also apparently have to be young, white, and very thin.

plumpdumpling: Who do you think ever dreamed up that look, anyway? And why? I always thought the seams right across the nipples on those bras would be extremely uncomfortable.
