A no-nonsense Yorkshire redhead with sass and attitude.

I adore retro fashion, vintage photography and pin up art from the recent past, as well as pretty frillies, naughty knickers and images of a sensual nature. I also love quality tv drama.

There is nothing sexier than a handsome man in a well cut suit. For this reason this blog may also contain gratuitous images of the gorgeous Richard Armitage and Michael Fassbender.

As this blog may occasionally contain themes of an adult nature, if you're below the age of consent in your country, please unfollow.

 Alberto Vargas - Esquire Yearbook July 1947 - Beautiful blue eyed brunette with a bathing suit that would be as fashionable today as it was 67 years ago this month. True Vargas style with perfect angles and style. Note that during the Esquire Years, Vargas signed his name “Varga” and the “Esq” for Esquire was located in the circle on the “g” of his name. A great way to determine the period of artwork from Vargas. DYNAMITE DINAH - “The Diana, Guys, is a sure prize, she’s strictly dynamite! And when she loves - the story goes, she loves with all her might. So when you’re tired of working and want to celebrate, some dynamite like Dinah, might be just the Gal to date!”

 Peter Darro -  Darro was born in 1917, he grew up in Chicago and spent a great time in Michigan at his uncle’s farm. Darro was known for his wildlife art of birds and animals but did a few illustrations of pinup art. His style was so similar to Gil Elvgren that it is difficult to see the difference in a few of his illustrations.
