For the party...


Denise: "Saturday night school dance in the 50's, oh what a time! 
Almost looks like she has her
petticoat on the outside
, oh so nice!
"


This video, sent by John D. is one we  posted many years ago; it is worthy of a second exhibition, as it is quite special to the Era: "Came across a video of Francoise Hardy (French singer).  Her song ,`Tous Les Garcons`
 from 1962, might be of interest to other Pettipond  followers. The best bit starts at 1min 15 seconds."


...and here's another of interest, posted by Jean L. in 2015...a video of an interesting concert

Occasionally, we run across an archival Update very much worth reposting; this is from 2009:
A
special vidclip  pointed out by Crinolyn - the very charming "No knickers" advertisement from 1987.


This archival is also from 2009: A video link from Crinolyn - this one is a bridal salon video from Russia, but contains some 'interestings.' 
First it looks like a young man  and his female friend are leaving with a petticoat in a plastic bag - she looks apprehensive, almost looking to see if anyone
sees them leaving! About thirty seconds into the  video a young lady prances about a bit in a bridal petticoat.  Later on she tries on several wedding dresses.

"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
