Dear March

Dear March – Come in –
How glad I am –
I hoped for you before –
Put down your Hat –
You must have walked –
How out of Breath you are –
Dear March, how are you, and the Rest –
Did you leave Nature well –
Oh March, Come right upstairs with me –
I have so much to tell –

I got your Letter, and the Birds –
The Maples never knew that you were coming –
I declare – how Red their Faces grew –
But March, forgive me –
And all those Hills you left for me to Hue –
There was no Purple suitable –
You took it all with you –

Who knocks? That April –
Lock the Door –
I will not be pursued –
He stayed away a Year to call
When I am occupied –
But trifles look so trivial
As soon as you have come

That blame is just as dear as Praise
And Praise as mere as Blame –

Emily Dickinson

I thought I should respond by flashing back in my Moschino Pin-Up Raincoat.


Hmmm, lingerie or sans lingerie…


Plump Pin-Up

Hilda –  Plump Size Pin-up Girl

Jessica Rabbit famously said, “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.”
Unlikely pin-up sensation Hilda would agree.

Illustrator Duane Bryer’s love of plump women led to the birth of Hilda, an endearing and slightly goofy, beautiful curvy girl.

Bryers told the Arizona Daily Star in 2010: ‘I got the idea for a plumpy gal pin-up and thought I’d like to make it into a calendar series. But how was I going to sell a plump girl?’

He then brought the series to the U.S.’s top calendar maker at the time, Brown & Bigelow, who ‘reluctantly put it in the line and figured it would last a short time.’

Hilda lived in the 1950s to 1980s and reached the peak of her fame in the 1960s. During that time, she was one of the best-loved calendar pin-up girls, alongside the likes of Marilyn Monroe. From lounging in long underwear and teddies to biking and sailing adventures in bikinis, Hilda embodies a spirit of innocence, playfulness and effortless charm.

 

In past reality, Hilda may have been less prominent because of her curvaceous figure,  but thanks to the internet she is making a comeback.
dievca appreciates the glory of a Zaftig Pin-Up.
There is hope for dievca, yet! XO
