Friday Finds May 2018

In 1938 Los Angeles, a woman went to jail for wearing pants in a courtroom. Amazing the things we take for granted today that were considered taboo or radical not that long ago.

Why cashmere can cost $2000 or $30– interesting.

This is terrifying- what happens to plastic that’s thrown away and not recycled.

The curious history of mother/daughter matching fashion. My mom and I never did the 80s thing of wearing the same dress, but we frequently wear the same color schemes. We even bought the same exact pair of sneakers independently of each other!

The changing history and silhouette of high school prom dresses since the 1940s.

The Chinese survivors of the Titanic. I definitely never heard about this!
