Brilliant blog The Theatre of Fashion once again showcases a fascinating facet of fashion history, this time the story behind women in tuxedos. Utterly interesting!

Voices of East Anglia has this fab round-up of space age Hi-Fi equipment. I need an Audio Egg – it’s brilliant!
I utterly love this great feature on witches in suburbia, 1964. Fascinating pictures. Via the fab Sighs and Whispers.
Deeply fascinating post on cover images of Nazi magazine Frauen Warte on How to Be A Retronaut. I’ve previously written about Forties Fashion in Germany and the Nazi ideal of a wholesome mother and housewife in traditional peasant dress. Interestingly I looked at old family pictures of the time recently and neither my grandmother nor her friends wore traditional dress, even though they did live in the countryside. My grandmother’s sister was a skilled dressmaker and made most of their clothing – in very fashionable patterns and Rayon silk.
