I want all of these. >/<
These exquisitely deft fashion drawings of quintissential cashed-up-flapper finery were imported or made for Manton’s, a publisher on the fourth floor of the Nicholas Building, in Melbourne in 1929. At least one of the fashion drawings — or maybe the job lot of them — is probably a design by Rosine Perrault of Rue Royale, Paris, who was Christian Dior’s mother’s dressmaker. Each drawing is on a loose page about A4 size, and every frock is accompanied by a hand-written description in French, and a plain, pencil drawing of the back view. Most of the clothes are silk or taffeta. The drawings are done in a steady hand with lead pencil and probably gouache (traced from a rough sketch, I’d wager) on semi-transparent, stiff paper, a bit like baking paper. Hidden away together in a box since 1929, aside from rare outings, the colours are stilll bright - look at those magenta cheeks! I tried to find the name of the illustrator but it was no go. The Nicholas Building was the last in Melbourne to employ lift operators - until 2012 - and now houses interesting shops and artists’ studios.The drawings are part of the picture collection at the State Library of Victoria.
the stereotype that women talk more than men is infinitely amusing to me because men are literally incapable of shutting the fuck up
i hope this post gets popular enough that i hurt a man’s feelings
It’s not a stereotype it’s a proven fact you femanazi piece of shit.
lmao there it is
You wanna talk proven facts? This shit’s been done, son: researcher Dale Spencer in Australia used audio and video tape to independently evaluate who talked the most in mixed-gender university classroom discussions. Regardless of the gender ratio of the students, whether the instructor was deliberately trying to encourage female participation or not, men always talked more—whether the metric was minutes of talking or number of words spoken.
Moreover, men literally have no clue how much they talk. When Spencer asked students to evaluate their perception of who talked more in a given discussion, women were pretty accurate; but men perceived the discussion as being “equal” when women talked only 15% of the time, and the discussion as being dominated by women if they talked only 30% of the time.
Spencer’s conclusion, if I may parahprase: you only think we talk too much because you’d rather we were silent.
Don’t fuck with me, asshole, I’m a scientist.
There are wonderful people in this world…it’s just really hard to find them
