  Many moons ago, one of my Tumblr followers asked: “Did people season their corsets in the 19th century?” Short answer: Not really. But they molded to the body much faster than many corsets made today, and some corsets came out of the factory already seasoned, in a[…]

The history of the “medical condition” of hysteria is a long, winding, somewhat convoluted one. In its earliest definitions, hysteria was a term to describe trauma or disease of the uterus (hence the word “hysterectomy” to remove the uterus) – or even to describe a vengeful or mischievous[…]

  Today I’m doing an OOTD of my Morticia dress from Pinup Girl Clothing. This is the older version with the side zip (I have never tried their updated version which is just closed on the side and you have to shimmy into the dress). I purchased this[…]
