Fine Upskirt
from Kristi


A couple of years ago, Rikki sent the below - It is definitely something all of us should see, therefore, well worth reposting!


"Here's a lovely documentary on Lolita fashionistas in Amsterdam and a look into their world.  The dress on the fashion designer near the end is
to die for.  I don't know if it's poufed with a very stiff petticoat or uses hoops to provide its perfect bell shape.  Oh, to have a young, slim body!"

ED:  This is a must-see for Lolita fans and those who wish to know much more about these lovely girls.
There is also a fascinating 'women' subculture we didn't know about (last third).
Furthermore, one learns the interesting and surprising differences between the Japanese Lolita culture and that of Europe (There is a BIG contrast!).

Karl K. offers this Easter publicity photo from Leave It To Beaver (1957-63)
"It is a rare sight to be able to see what Barbara Billingsley wore under her dress!"

This iconic TV series offered an occasional glimpse of June Cleaver's petticoat, and, now and then, little
 girl poufy party dresses!  At the end of the episode entitled "Beaver Finds a Wallet," Beaver's mother,
June, wears a full, petticoated skirt, which is not her normal attire. 
[R.I.P. Barbara Billingsley (1915-2010)]
 


We are initiating a new "Uncategorized" section; this includes the images previously in the "Orphaned" section, which no longer exists

      June  May  Smatterings



"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening, sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.


Think of our brave troops, wherever they are!

Support Israel's fight for survival!
It needs our help, now more than ever,
 as it is the only democracy in the Middle East
