Fished from the bitstream 8



I wanted to especially mention, on this edition of "Fished from the bitstream," Amy Jeanne from over at "It'll Take The Snap Out Of Your Garters!" who has started a flickr pool dedicated to vintage lingerie. I thought it was a killer idea and have been enthusiastically adding images to it myself, but I wanted to share this little jewel from her collection. I know it has nothing to do with vintage film, but I thought the picture was excruciatingly cute. :)
