oh popeye...

Its sad the Popeye isn't on TV anymore. Not only does it have super morals (eat old dry looking spinach by the can) but Olive Oyl is a completely underrated style icon. There she is, big old brown lace up boots, ankle socks peeping over the top of them, cropped blouse and long skinny skirt. Bearing in mind this was being drawn in the 30s I think you'll agree that she was light years ahead of her time. Maybe somewhere in the 30s the artist sat sketching a model who had long (somewhat gangly) limbs, a flawless complexion, neat black bob and a giant heart.
