Wedding Dress

Kathryn Kuhn 

Made for the nuptials of Miss Patricia Carin Hirschhorn and Mr. Charles Schine which took place in September 1960, this ensemble represents wedding attire on the grandest of scales. The ceremony took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The style, proportions and details of the gown, including the lengthy train and 19th century rosepoint lace, would have been appropriate to the grandeur of the occasion and the formality of the venue. The dress is similar in decoration and shape to that created by MGM designer Helen Rose for Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier on April 18, 1956, an event that made headlines around the world and influenced bridal fashions long after the royal wedding day.

Aliza Razell: Magic and Mystic Photography

Flickrock, Facebook

Massachusetts-based artist Aliza Razell creates tickling self-portraits that explore philosophical abstractions through the merged mediums of watercolour and photography. Using Photoshop, Razell unites the two mediums in her Anesidora (explorations of the Pandora’s Box myth) and Ikävä (the Finnish word meaning the feeling of longing) series.

All-girl barber shop quartet nails it!

Guys. Guys… Did I ever tell you how much I love barbershop quartets and women who can sing? Oh geez. This is too much.

HALEY LOOK WHAT SHOWED UP ON MY DASH!

Guys…. I don’t think you understand how unbelievable this is… There was not one intonation problem in this entire performance. That’s…. well it’s …

i’m here for this

Reblogging again just to emphasize: These ladies are singing an extreeeeemely complex arrangement, and their intonation and tempo is so clean it shines. I just. Can’t. Stop. Watching it.

Just FYI barbershop quartets of all women are called “Sweet Adelines”
