Great moments in my history


Are those or are those not the coolest culottes ever? (That's rhetorical, FYI.)

Well, it looks like a skirt, but regardless, I NEED IT! I love that pattern!

Melinda June said...

See, that's the magical thing about culottes. They look like a skirt, but they function like shorts. Win Win.

I believe that that is technically a "skort". I had one that looked almost the same. Hott.

Bubs said...

You are rocking that skort, no doubt about it.

That photo is a brilliant historical document. In addition to capturing the fashion of a bygone era, it also reminds us that zoos used to be a simple collection of animals in cages, surrounded by lots of concrete.

Chris said...

You put the "cool" back in culottes!

Forgive me...

Melinda June said...

Ha! I was waiting for that cheap joke, Chris! Well done!

Lu, "skort" is a newfangled word. Those are culottes.

And you're right, Bubs. That is the Como Zoo, in fact, one that has tried to transform into a "habitat" one, but it is based on the cement/cage principle so there's a limit to what you can do, you know?

lulu said...

maybe it's a regional thing, because I wore skorts as a kid, never culottes.

Melinda June said...

I also sat on a davenport as a kid, so what do I know?

lulu said...

my grandmother had a davenport, which I think is actually a brand name, but we had a sofa. And some people have couchs. Language is weird.

My godmother had a divan. (Isn't that right, Lou?)

That zoo was evil. Look at those poor animals, ready to tear each other to shreds out of sheer boredom and frustration.

My Grandma called her davenport the "daven-o."

I think the beast in the cage is wondering what those two warm morsels would taste like with some Penzy's chicken seasoning and stock.
