Exploring being female (for that's what we are) in a world of media myths, publishing incompetence, and marketing madness -- as well as the female submission and subscription to those messages.

Banging My Head -- Not My Hips -- Against The Wall

I found this vintage magazine page at the Visual Arts Library Picture & Periodicals Collections blog (one of my newly discovered favorite blogs with lots of goodies for me to write about).

I'm fascinated by the juxtaposition of the vintage shoe ad and the improve your figure/posture article... Even back in 1948, Harper's knew how to mix and match editorial with advertising -- which is probably why there's no mention of having your feet flat on the floor, or what wearing high heeled shoes can do to you. Of course, when the first "exercise" consists of banging your "bumpy" hips on the wall to smooth them... Well, what can you expect?
