Pasties and Pearls

tumblr_mblaeyNQR51rplb80o1_500Doing some research on the birth of Burlesque has led me down a path of such glittery, gaudy, and totally fun images. I keep coming back to this photograph of this woman. Her pasties glittering, light reflecting off the discs on her bottoms, the prudent pearls, show time makeup on, glasses perched on her nose, newspaper, shoulders silently telling you how involved she is in what she is reading. Down the costume rack that is out of focus behind her. Just a girl taking a quick break at work. I really like this.
Picture circa late 50’s.

    Great find. There must have been a market for candid type shots. I wonder if it was staged for some reason. Then again, it doesn’t matter because it’s a cool photo.
