SEPIA SATURDAY (145)

On Sepia Saturday this week, 
the prompt picture proposes that we all go to the beach. 
Alright, 
I'll do just that, 
drag you to the beach, 
and beyond...


Venice Beach, 1937
A Clark Gable mask was the best UV protection back then, 
it would seem... 
or was this printed bathing suit an affront to fashion?!? 
:)~


Jackie, 1960.
After she lost the "B". 
before she became the "O". 
But if you look at her accessories, 
I find it an odd choice for a First Lady. 
Was she moonlighting as a secret agent too?!? 
:D~


Speaking of odd, 
look at this beauty from a century ago. 
Possibly not proper attire for the beach, 
but I'm sure it is cocktail hour somewhere on this planet 
and that some gents would appreciate. 
I can see velvet curtains, crystal chandeliers, 
a pianist playing some music, 
cigar smoke whiffing through wood paneled rooms, 
women laughing and Champagne and Boubon flowing, 
a door closing gently... 
;)~


Depending of your mood, 
you might want something "spicier"...
Yva Richard was a label creating fine lingerie for the fetish and S&M crowd, 
publishing their own cataloges in the 1920s and 1930s. 
I'm including a LINK to another blog, 
not directly on the post but on the page, 
so you can see for yourself [if you feel like it] vintage erotica. 
It is in french but well worth a look in my opinion. 
And should you feel I've overstepped the boundaries of decency, 
just blame it on the migraine that has been afflicting me for the last three days. 
I presume things will go back to normal by next week. 
But then, 
WHAT IS NORMAL?!? 
;)~


Back to the beach for you folks!! 
Head out to 
Put on some sun screen and don't let the sand creep in everywhere... 
Have a good week!! 
:)~

  1. What's up with the Clark Gable mask? And why is Lady #3 wearing socks? Such a puzzle.

    1. It is all open to speculation now since none can answer us now.

  2. Oh well, NORMAL is just next to FLUFF on the dryer....some pretty different variety of ladies you have there.

    1. You certainly have a funny way of putting it. Liking it a lot!!
      I live on the fringe and my SS posts often reflect that...
      If I managed to make a few of you smile,
      I daresay I've accomplished my mission.

  4. The lady in the last picture looks familiar. Do you know who she was? I didn't expect ladies in the buff and kept looking for the costumes!

    1. I did say I was linking on the page of that blog,
      not directly to the post where this pic is posted,
      so people could have a look around at good vintage erotic.
      The costumes were toward the bottom of that page.

  6. You chose some great pictures for us. I loved Jackie's bathing cap. We all had to wear those things at the pool, until boys got long hair and wouldn't be caught dead in them. That heavy lady looked very pretty, and comfortable with herself ... 100 years ago, when most were thinner than they are today.

    Hope you are feeling better!

    P.S. - I did post the Reno light fixture photos on the post right below this week's SS if you want to take a gander.

      but I will eventually drop by, no worry!!

  7. Miss Whiplash doesn't look to have much of a sense of humour! I wonder why one of the ladies looks familiar to Bob and why did he KEEP looking for their costumes? :)

    1. It's all part of her persona as a dominatrix.
      As for Bob, I can't account for his whereabouts.
      Possibly something in his secret garden....
      but I did promise some costumes.
      He didn't look far enough, that's all.

  8. Ouais, très intéressant tout ça, mais j'ai accroché sur le site de La Petite Mélancolie! Wouh! Les pitounes du début du 20e siècle sont quelque chose à voir!!

    Pour Jackie, je n'ai jamais compris l'engouement sur sa personne hormis le fait qu'elle ait été, bien sûr, la première dame des States. Sinon, bof...

    Et sur les plages, même aujourd'hui, cré moé que l'on en voit de toutes les sortes!! ;¬D

    1. Oui, ce fut pour moi egalement une belle surprise.
      Un reflet de la technique de l'epoque,
      des moeurs et de la mode aussi.

      Jackie est devenue un icone americain et ca a dure toute sa vie.
      Il y a de ces choses qui ne se discutent pas.
      Regarde la culture americaine actuelle et on peut se questionner sur la validite
      de certaines de leur vedettes...
      :D~

  9. Where did you get that photograph of Auntie Miriam from? No, not the prompt photo - the one which is Number Three in your collection. I always look forward to your posts on what is a lengthening list of Sepians.

    1. SS seems to have become contagious which I gather is good.
      It will offer an even wider view of what constitutes sepia.

  10. I always enjoy a picture of Jackie!

  11. Oh my- adore photo one- totally happy that those hats of Jackie O are in the past....as for the next two-I hope to forget the third photo and number four kind of rocks in a bondage kind of way! I just adore how you put such cool comedy to this! Smiling!

  12. Oh my...why did lady number three ever take her clothes off in public? The whole effect of the elaborate costume is sort of nightmarish..until you see the socks and shoes. Then it's kind of funny. Great photos. Hope your migraine has abated.

    1. #3 was in a studio, not in public.
      The socks and maryjanes is possibly what makes it most shocking,
      in my opinion...
      :D~

    1. But then again, I raise the question once more,
      What is normal?!?
      Depends whom you ask...
