First, did you know that Google now hosts the Life Magazine Photo Archive? I don’t know about you, but I could spend (and have spent) hours perusing the photos from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. You can search for “lindy hop” or “dancing” or even “Frankie Manning” and come up with some great shots, or just browse the eras for honest-to-goodness pop culture images.
Second, Dorthea’s Closet is hosting a private vintage fashion event called Haute Holiday. The event will be held December 5 at 8 pm. You’ll need an invite to get in – please stop by the store to inquire about invitations!
