Happy Birthday Elvis: The King’s 78th!

ElvisBday

Today Mr. Elvis Presley would have been 78 years old! Hard to believe considering he, much like Marilyn Monroe, never seemed to waver in popularity. I’d dare say he is the most celebrated American Musician of the 20th century, and rightfully so.  Continue reading

Snood, Glorious Snood!

Snoods are truly a wonderful little slice of vintage heaven!

They are a lovely, affordable way to add vintage flourish to any look!  Continue reading
