Who knew? I have thought for years that high heels were invented by men to make women more prone to the dominance of men, but I was wrong.

Please enjoy this witty article, The Male-Dominated, Power-Hungry History of High Heels,” by Jennifer Wright that explains the origin of high heels.

What brand of heels do you think are the most comfortable? Do you have a favorite pair of heels you would like me to illustrate?

Cole of California Vintage Swimsuit


I found this 1950s swimsuit @sweetbeefinds on Instagram and here on Etsy. Sadly it sold before I finished painting it, but there are many, many great vintage fashions to find in the shop!

The modern day bikini was first introduced July 5, 1946 by designer Louis Reard.
