Ah yes. Then you, too, would know the joy of girdles, long-line bras, garters and thigh-high stockings (and garters that pop off when you sit down). Ever try to sit down in a hoop skirt? There's an art to it!
Give me jeans and pantyhose ANY day!

Everytime I see a woman try to sit down with a hoop skirt for the first time, I really wish I had a camcorder!

I didn't know the garter belt/hose part. Hmmm...

(in regards to the whistles)
Ahh I can't read music well enough to figure out how that goes! I can only read it if someone can play the first note! Why didn't I pay more attention?!

Love it! I wish AOII's was on there....only a few people even remember ours. Do you know how to do ADPi's, honeychile?

I absolutely LOVE the polka dot dress! Fashion was so awesome in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Here is a picture from 1927 at Miami University of a group with the letters "HIM"




The letters were an acronym for The H I M (Happy Independent Maidens) Club, an organization of non-fraternity women. This was a precursor to GDI.

According to the MU website:
"Each pledge wore "a blue stocking on one leg and tan one on the other, a high heel and a low heel, dress on backwards and hair in pigtails with blue and tan ribbons in the end." H I M stands for Happily Independent Maidens."

Wow! You know Greek Life really dominates campus when the non-affiliated women form their own official social group!

[South Carolina] - Introduced by the Sigma Chi fraternity in 1947, Derby Day featured sorority sisters competing in the Miss Venus pageant, wearing high heels, short-shorts, tight blouses, and paper bags over their heads.
