little dogs!


The gorgeous Jayne Mansfield ‘at home’, via Retronaut, in 1956. She seems to be cooking in some sort of small cupboard.

There are pictures of her on the telephone, in a nylon negligee, on the telephone in a nylon negligee, smoking, drinking coffee, cooing over her dear little dogs… pausing to exchange only a very brief word with someone who must be her child, then back to this:
