    Ah, this is better! I do become bored so quickly and so easily. A brand new Journal with a brand new name. Hmmm hmmm, these fresh crisp new pages smell so ... so fresh!

    I've been reading "The Lost Books of the Bible & The Forgotten Books of Eden." These were suppressed by the early church fathers who "compiled" the Bible and I can easily see why.

    But more about this later ... Don't wanna start a new Journal off on such a controversial subject!

    Let me lighten up a bit ...

    Grecian or Tango Boots Circa 1918 ... Wicked!

    The Met says: High shoes with a strapped or laced front were known as “Grecian sandals” or “Grecian boots” in the 19th century. In about 1913, a new moniker appeared: the “tango boot.”

    The dance craze of the 1910s encouraged footwear that was both showy and firmly secured to the foot, thus elevating the tango boot and its sister style, the tango shoe (a pump with crossing laces or straps which extended up the ankle), to prominence.

    In this interpretation of the tango boot from the Brooklyn Museum collection, the flamboyant metallic material would serve to attract attention to the movement of the feet, whether on or off the dance floor.

    The Coolest Victorian Dress Ever! Circa 1870.

    Hands down coolest Victorian dress ever. Check out the parasol pocket on the skirt!!!

    IMA says: This two-piece visiting dress is made in two shades of gray silk faille. The skirt is lavishly trimmed with pleated silk swags, silk fringe, flounces and piping. Pleated ruching and silk fringe are also used on the bodice. The skirt has a short train and is worn with a bustle. The triangular pocket on the right side of the skirt, trimmed with buttons and cord lacing, was designed to hold a parasol.

    Awesome Art Deco!

    Lionel and John Barrymore and Joan Crawford during the filming of an “exterior” scene for Grand Hotel (Edmund Goulding, 1932).

    The art deco-style hotel entrance, a front built on a soundstage, was designed by art director Cedric Gibbons.

    Just Love These Words!

    “Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard.
    Do not let the pain make you hate.
    Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
    Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree,
    You still believe it to be a beautiful place.”

    Topless Duelling? Really ladies!

    Register to remove this ad.
    “The most intriguing duel fought between women, and the sole one that featured exposed bosoms, took place in August 1892 in Verduz, the capitol of Liechtenstein, between Princess Pauline Metternich and the Countess Kielmannsegg.

    It has gone down in history as the first “emancipated duel” because all parties involved, including the principals and their seconds were female … Before the proceedings began, the baroness pointed out that many insignificant injuries in duels often became septic due to strips of clothing being driven into the wound by the point of a sword. To counter this danger she prudently suggested that both parties should fight stripped of any garments above the waist.

    Certainly, Baroness Lubinska was ahead of her time, taking an even more radical take on the (at the time) widely dismissed theories of British surgeon Joseph Lister, who in 1870 revolutionized surgical procedures with the introduction of antiseptic. With the precautions Baroness Lubinska recommended, the topless women duelists were less likely to suffer from an infection; indeed, it was a smart idea to fight semiclad.

    Given the practicality of the baroness’ suggestion and the “emancipated” nature of the duel, it was agreed that the women would disrobe—after all, there would be no men present to ogle them. For the women, the decision to unbutton the tops of their dresses was not sexual; it was simply a way of preventing a duel of first blood from becoming a duel to the death.

    It is humorous that most recounts of this historic event fail to mention two important things: the winner of the duel (Princess Metternich) and the reason why the women came to arms in the first place—they disagreed over the floral arrangements for an upcoming musical exhibition.”
