A lot of leg, a lot of Lombard…but a thirties ‘mini’?   Leave a comment

Current mood: hothot

Carole Lombard was justifiably proud of her legs, but probably not proud enough to go against fashion history.

This large pic of the leggy Lombard on sale at eBay is described in the subject line as “Carole Lombard Mini Dress Pin Up 16 x 20 Photographic Print.” While Carole could be unconventional at times, one can’t imagine her flouting any 1930s fashion police by wearing this outfit to dine at Sardi’s or the Brown Derby. And the term “minidress” or “miniskirt” did not exist in the 1930s. (This looks to be from 1934 or ’35.)

No, this is Carole the casual — something to wear at poolside while sunning herself one afternoon, complete with bonnet.

Anyway, at 16″ x 20″, this would be quite the image on the wall of any Lombard fan; it’s on heavyweight archival paper, too, suitable for framing. Want it? For $24.99, it can be yours.
