Is this product real vintage or is the label made to look that way?
Peach: It is real vintage. I scanned it from my copy of a June 28, 1943 Life magazine.
I've used that stuff before; I learned quickly however, it doesn't really work if one has hairy legs. Cheers Michele!!
I tried something like this a couple of years ago and it came off the second I started to sweat. But the vintage ad is awesome!
Matt: if you shaved more often you wouldn't have that problem.Blue: I can't even imagine what this stuff was made of to make it stick like that. Everyone: it was so hard to not give a history lesson about WWII, silk and rationing that I just might give myself an award.
I am so glad that's not something I am able to get my hands on. Liquid makeup for my legs??? A disaster waiting to happen.
I thought of the WWII stockings rationing. I remember in the movie called....(I'll think of it in a minute) about a boy in England during the WWII bombing on his family.....that his teen-age sister had him draw a seam line on the back of her leg from her thigh down to the shoe and then she went out dancing with the hall with the American army men.
A blast from the past. Happy WW!http://tinyurl.com/ybq53oq
Eww. I can't imagine wanting to wear stockings so badly that you'd paint them on.
Isn't leg make-up still around, for covering up spider veins and scars? I know I've seen it in mail order catalogs. The shoes are screaming "sensible, dammit!", too clunky for the dainty slip.
And here I was just wishing for a pour on stocking product that would take all the fuss and stress of running my pantyhose.. ALL THESE YEARS!
Can you imagine putting make-up on your legs? Ihardly like shaving them.
My Momma used to tell me how she used to paint her legs because she couldn't afford hose.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Whats the difference of that stuff and the spray tan of today?
I can see that getting pretty horrible if the evening went the right way.
The ad is great....the comments are even better. :-)Hope your day has been beautiful
That was something interesting. So far I have heard of is a product from Japan which you can use to spray on your legs to have the same effect.
There was a time when most woman wouldn't wear slacks. Neat vintage find! "June 28, 1943 Life magazine." Wow, my birtday! I'm younger though.;o) Happy WW! Woof - The Gang @ Dog Blog for Five Dogs
Think about it as a historical document. Don't laugh. This is nothing but how it was at that time.Great entry
Great post for WW! And we thought that spray-on tan stuff was a new thing. Happy Thanksgiving and WW to you!
