Happy Pin Up Wednesday Swimwear and Lingerie Junkies.

The question for today’s post is; If a Pin Up is only half drawn on the page, is she any less real?

Deep right?

Ponder away my darlings!

Cheers,

Maggie

Happy Hump Day Swimwear and Lingerie fanatics!

Your workweek is almost half over and to help you hurdle this formidable hump, I bring you a talented young lady who can fix her own car, in heels! Which is waaay more than I can accomplish. I have trouble even walking in heels, never mind tinkering with an engine.

I tell ya, Mr. Elvgren knows some of the most talented ladies.

I gotta say, one of my favourite parts of a Gil Elvgren Pin Up, has got to be the facial expressions. What do you think she’s saying here?

She looks defiantly patient, as though Elvgren had frozen a moment, split second, between dialogue and action. He’s just awesome isn’t he?

I think her thought bubble, a la Snoopy in Peanuts, would read: “Whistle one more time and this wrench will require a greased monkey to remove it!”

Cheers,

Maggie

{psst… shhhh, no don’t look over, just listen… Hi Swimwear and Lingerie fans….. NO!! Don’t say hi back…pretend I’m not breaking the Wordless Wednesday rules… anyhoo, it’s Wordless Wednesday again and I’m not supposed to talk. Enjoy this Playtex all in one girdle Ad and just imagine all the silliness I would probably say about it!}

Cheers,

{Hi Swimwear and Lingerie Friends. It’s Wordless Wednesday and I am NOT saying a thing today. I promise! And it’s not just because my German is rustier than my Spanish. Quick side note isn’t it nice to see a bra ad feature a woman with smaller breasts? I found it really refreshing}

Hi Swimwear and Lingerie Friends!

{Waves… I’m not supposed to talk, so I won’t…much. Enjoy this exquisite vintage lingerie ad from Lady Marlene… I wouldn’t call this a Babydoll would you? I’m not really sure what a panty-bra-s’lette is either…sounds very Seussian. I would love to pick all these little mysteries apart, but it’s Wordless Wednesday and I’m NOT ALLOWED…stupid rule}

Greeting from the land of Swimwear and Lingerie.

Once again we have Marilyn Monroe working her swimwear as no other woman could!
Wish my hind view looked this adorable in such a cute and frilly little two piece swimsuit.

Cheers,

Maggie

Hi Everyone! How is your wednesday going so far? Can I brighten it up a bit with a photo post from Swimwear and Lingerie Land?

Marilyn Monroe in a one piece swimsuit and heels by the pool…sigh wish I could be lounging by a pool in my suit right about now.

Cheers,

Hello Swimwear and Lingerie Friends. {waves enthusiastically}

Although this presenter actually uses the phrase “All youse Ladies out there…”, {shuddering at the hideously wrong pluralization of the word ‘you’…ughhhhh} she did say one interesting thing concerning saggy breasts and chemicals found in smoking that I found rather interesting.

Have you every heard about this?

Frankly, I quite like her out takes when she stops being ‘professional’ and speaks off the cuff! Kinda funny stuff!

Cheers,

Maggie
