class act

Thanks to Mild Colonial Boy, Esq. for bringing my attention to this photo from 1930:

I have mixed thoughts at seeing eyeliner and a monocle, and I'm not sure why.  This woman looks so classy and yet I've been thrown off.  Perhaps because I've never actually seen a woman outside of a steampunk photo wearing a monocle, and never from this close.

Monocles were popular until before WWII and, as I said in this blog post, coming back in popularity.
