"threaded"-Sharing One of My Favorite Blogs

One of my favorite blogs is Smithsonian Institution's Threaded. American's are so lucky to have such a resource as the Smithsonian.

Threaded is a fashion blog, but not the usual fashion blog that you see today. It is based on history and social context. You can read everything from the evolution of the swimsuit, the beginning of nylon stockings, and the influence of the 1969 moon landing  on the fashion industry. 

Here are a few pictures to show just a small variety of what a reader can find on Threaded. My link will take you to the latest installment. The photo captions are the posts that each photo is from. 



From the latest installment,
