Miss Lollypop Powder Mitt '68

In the grand tradition of Pussy Meow and My Merry Bride of Frankenstein, here's another bit of 60's AEET girl fun, blogged about by a man who is not afraid to admit that he likes (and buys) this kind of stuff. And apparently, Avon released quite a few different items under the Miss Lollypop name, and this lightly scented, talc coated powder mitt is quite fetchingly packaged, featuring adorably illustrated box and mitt art-- and low and behold the one I found is still in its inner plastic wrap, unopened, aka never used! Shall I open it? Shall I take a bath and then gently pat myself down with it? Tell me what you think!

God you make me laugh. I, personally, am of the rip everything open and use it immediately ilk. So I say DO IT!

But you need to do what feels right for you.

And if gently patting yourself down with a girly Miss Lollipop lightly scented, talc coated powder mitt feels right, then by all means...

I'm guessing you want photos of this pat down too, eh?

Craftypants Carol said...

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT WAS AN OPTION!

But also - I noticed that the girly image on the shrink wrapped part looks like it's on the packaging and I'd like to know if the girly image is on the little mitt too.

I would appreciate photos of every moment of the operation from every angle possible. Thank you.

Aye aye, Cap'n!

Wouldn't a name like "Miss Lollypop" imply she was to be licked?

Karswell said...

Or maybe she's the one doing the lickin'... either way is all good!

Is it good or bad that I feel really icky and everything tastes like chalk after reading that post and these comments?

I mean, that's the proper reaction, right? :)

Karswell said...

Wait, does everything taste chalky after I patted myself down with said mitt?

Then yes, something is up, Brian, for sure...

Brian Barnes said...

Well, that was a bad turn of phrase, for sure, I sort of walked into that!

Karswell said...

With your mouth wide open?

Brian Barnes said...

I dark lord below you're making me re-live how every conversation with my friends went in high school!

Karswell said...

This is what it's like everyday over on facebook, Bri... only more like grade school.

Totally agreeing with Carol here.
1. Pat yourself down.
2. Take pictures.
3. Post.
