Your librarian click-bait of the day, courtesy of BuzzFeed: 19 Vintage Photos of Stylin’ Librarians: Polka dots! Cloches! Sock garters! Shirtwaists! Fabulous hair! 

Ooooh, idea: can we call on Librarian Wardrobe to host a gallery of modern re-creations/reinterpretations of some of these photos?

Dibs on recreating #15’s turban!

My only complaint about this list is that I wish BuzzFeed had given more prominent credit to My Daguerreotype Librarian, the source of many of the most bad ass of these images, or provided the photographed librarians’ names, when available.
