Happy Postcard Friendship Friday


It's hotter than Haiti out here, and I'm posting a summer costume. My cousin knows I love history of costume postcards so she sent me this one the other day. This is a dance ensemble, look how far apart they are "all in the name of propriety" Can you imagine a couple dancing like this with this much on today. We went out for dinner on my son's birthday and the hostess had on a nightie, one like Betty on Mad Men wears, now if she had on the whole set it might have been o.k. but I don't even think I wore something that see through on my wedding night. So if this is how one can dress for work, what does one wear for an evening of dancing?
Please don't think I'm a prude, I've had my day of strapless and such, and I burned my bra along with everyone else, (I've recently put it back on, you know that song, if your boobs hang low, can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them in a bow.) but I'm not sure of the this spooning way of dancing , have we gone too far?

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, be sure to check out the other participants at The Best Hearts are Crunchy.

Did not know that boob song. Can you dance to it? I hope your son enjoyed the dress of the waitress. Happy PFF!

I love your post - and the postcard! :) :)

Like Bob, I don't know the boob song. Perhaps it didn't reach Europe. We missed out. :)

Well when I taught school we did not use the wood boob in the song...it was "If your ears hang low.....this is a new version.

for the dancers in the first postcard - I imagine the clothes were made of wool. Imagine how hot that must have been!

Whenever I see nighties like that, I think they would just go up in flames if near a cigarette! Betty better be careful!

And my nighties are old t-shirts and shorts!

Hotter than Haiti you say. Well I looked at my info today and we are hotter than Africa! Yup, temperature was forecast to be hotter than Cairo for the next 2 days, now that's hot!

Love the card and the boob story by the way.

We've gone too far. Where on earth did you guys go for dinner, that the waitress was so scantily clad? And I for one never burned a bra. Nor would I, even if I could go back.

We must learn to blush again!

It's gonna be 100 here tomorrow ... actual temperature. I may go topless, LOLOL
