BB Bloomer:

"Till very recently, I knew nothing about 'Caporales'. They seem to be carnival dances very popular in South America.
Girls will wear 'Mini Polleras', a kind of short bouffant twirling skirt or dress, rather sensual!
 Here is a fine example."
 
 

 

Would have to this describe this tutu as unique

We missed-placed the name of the person who send this "extending the charm" gem.

Very sad, sad news

PondGirl Allison, a mainstay of The Pond, passed away on Sunday. 
Many of us were great admirers of her, marveling at her Fifties portraits. 
 

She will be sorely missed.  God Bless Her.

Mobile, Alabama."
