Check out this great blog from the Cyprus Mail! I also loved the header image of Captain Marvel with her pockets!

If you’re a woman, you’ll be altogether too familiar with the incredible feeling of wearing a new outfit and discovering it has pockets. This is such a rarity, it fills anyone with delight – finally, somewhere you can actually put your things!

“While they fell out of favour, pockets weren’t completely shunned by the upper echelons of society. Instead, some women insisted on sewing pockets into their clothes right up to the late 1800s. Just take Queen Victoria’s black mourning dress, which she wore after the death of her grandson the Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, in 1892.”
