Grandma Would’ve Known Better

Wow! There’s been hell to pay around here today. MO is really, really upset that there’s been so much chatter about the frock she chose to wear to U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti’s posthumous Medal of Honor Award ceremony.

She has no idea how it made it’s way around the blogosphere on Sunday, of all days, when Big Guy was busy in front of the cameras explaining to the likes of George Stephanopoulos what the meaning of “dictionary” is.

If it’s all right with you guys, I’d just as soon not volunteer any information involving how this picture might have slipped out. But I would like to take this opportunity to thank Pundit & Pundette for linking me on their site, and at Hot Air Greenroom,  as well as Fausta’s, Gateway Pundit, Dinah Lord and Celestial Junk. Thanks guys. It’s always nice to get a little boost. Especially when you start wondering if anyone even notices what you’re trying to do to help out.

But let’s just keep this our little secret. Lady M really hates it if I say “I told you so.” But anyone with half a brain would have know that dress would’ve made a better Catalina bathing suit for your grandma than a frock honoring a fallen hero.


The 40’s also  brought to the fore a more feminine swimsuit, like this safari print one that belonged to actress June Allyson.  Photo courtesy of

1940s Vintage Kamehameha Hawaiian Bathing Suit Swimsuit


1940s Vintage Kamehameha Hawaiian Bathing Suit Swimsuit $250.00 SWIM100 Incredible like new Vintage 40s 50s Pinup Hawaiian Bathing Suit Playsuit in the boldest, brightest colors. The design is so sweet with its elasticized neckline & straps, which are adjustable, built in bra pads, fully lined inside and gathered at the legs and short type outer bottom. This lovely romper suit zips up the back and ties at the waist. It is very flattering on and reminds me of the way a woman was dressed in an old pinup.
