Today Chicago had ”open house” where people could come in and test the various available courses. I went there in the belief that there would just be a few people... Well, the place was completely packed!

It was really fun and I made sure to dance with the instructor once, so as to get his assessment on what level I should take. He said he thought I followed well and that I should choose the level after beginners level - cool!

So next week I start swing dance! ☺ Today's outfit.

Usually the pictures on most of the vintage blogs (mine too ) I read use images like the one above.

But isn't this the most delightful pin up girl and so much closer to "home" for the most of us ;)

Aren't these pictures cute! I decided to follow the Internet address on one of the images in hope to find more of the same. I didn't, but I found a website with more "full" pinup girls which was encouraging to see.

How ever the illustrated images on toilgirls.com are a little more "naughty" than the pictures in this post.

Hi Diva, Thankyou so much for the lovely welcome back. Its lovely being able to read your blog again, you have changed it?? You used to have lots of pictures that used to take awhile to load and I was having difficulty viewing it and I was rarely able to get to your comment section, but today it loaded straight away, so just catching up on your posts. Love the photos of Dita (isnt she stunning?). And I am so glad you are enjoying the series of the Onedin Line, that is a show I remember from my childhood. I am a huge fan of British films and TV shows from the 1960's and 70's and have lots of DVD's. Of course I love the old Hollywood films too X

Hi there, I love these new pin-ups. I'd love to see the link to similar paintings because right now I don't have the patience to do my own Google search and weed through the porn lol.
