Vintage dressed ladies

It’s interesting links day and I hope each one of my readers has had an amazing week. In this week’s links we have a rundown of: what ‘ideal’ body shapes looked like over time, 40 photos of kids and their parents side by side, 10 women who posed as men to get ahead, and 50 people you wish you knew (cos they’re cooler than cool!).

I hope everyone has had a brilliant weekend, and enjoys this list. My next feature post is just days away!


The “Ideal” Body Looks NOTHING Like It Used To

This link is probably my favourite of the bunch. It was interesting to see the changes in ideas for women’s bodies over the decades, the article also reminders us not to take too much stock in trends when it comes to our bodies.

Some really weird and wonderful people were included in this list, but in all honesty, I’m mostly posting because of the fifth photo. The expressions are gold, but you’ll have to look to find out for yourself! I hope you enjoy some of the other photos too.

    Interesting! The parent/child look alikes were amazing. As for the ideal body shape – must admit I’m a fan of the 50’s.

      The ideal body shape article really does highlight how little stock we should put into comparing our body with the ideal. Seems it all comes down to the luck of being born in a certain generation with a certain body shape.
