With less than 2 days until Christmas, I’m sure you Dolls are stressed out with last-minute gift shopping and other holiday preparations. It’s hard to believe it’s really that time of year again! It feels like only yesterday it was summer (Man, I miss my flip-flops!) Continue reading
A few things come to mind when one thinks of Elizabeth Taylor; Her amazing collection of jewelry, her incomparable beauty, her 8 marriages, her role as Cleopatra, etc. But “catlady”? Er, not so much. Continue reading
Fashion Week came and went ever so quickly this September and there were a surprising amount of vintage inspired collections on the runways! While I am not much of a label hound (Seriously, who has that kind of money to burn?), I like seeing designers with a retro spirit and obvious appreciation for the classics. After going through what felt like a zillion photos from all of the shows, I managed to weed out the best vintage looks for Spring 2013! From 1930’s Art Deco evening wear to mid-century floral frocks, there’s a little something for everyone 😉 Continue reading
Okay, I know I said I would be cutting my hair in a few weeks, but I just couldn’t wait! Last Saturday it was 100 degrees here in NYC and I thought to myself “how much cooler would I be right now if I didn’t feel like there was a cat sitting on top of my head?!”. The sheer weight of my hair was giving me a headache and I was in desperate need of relief! So, I called my best friend and after straightening my mane, we put it into 4 ponytails for donation and cut them off together at her place! It was quite an ordeal as far as preparation, but as soon as I felt the scissor going through my hair, I felt elated! Continue reading
Hey there Guys and Dolls! I am cutting my locks in a couple of weeks and I am having a difficult time deciding what exactly I should do with it. It has never been this quite this long before (it is now down to my butt!) and I think it is time to let it go. That being said, deciding on a new style/length is way more trying than I had anticipated. I plan to donate 10-18 inches to charity and am willing to go super short. I’ve been pouring over various photos and magazines trying to find something I like. I have narrowed it down to a few choices I think will work for me. What do you guys think?
My current state of affairs, lol
The longest of the bunch, like the lovely Rita Hayworth?
Shorter and full-bodied, a la Jane Russel?
Just above the shoulder, like the stunning Liz Taylor?
Or a classic shoulder length page-boy, like the beautiful Gene Tierney?
Any other suggestions are welcome, thanks for your help 🙂
Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most beautiful women of the 20th century. Most notably, for her amazingly rare eyes. They were said to be amethyst in color and Ms. Taylor always played up her most breathtaking feature with the help of a deep jet black eye liner. Continue reading
Wedding season is upon us, gals and its time to do it up right! I’ve read so many articles lately about what to wear to this kind of wedding or that kind of wedding. While that’s all well and good, and there are certainly some guidelines that should be upheld when selecting proper wedding attire, I had yet to see any vintage style dresses assembled for the nuptial occasion! So, I did a little digging and hand selected some great pics for all of you ladies out there with a mailbox full of wedding invitations and nothing to wear! All of these dresses are under $100.00 and unlike that Pepto-Bismol pink bridesmaids dress you have shoved in the back of your closet, these frocks can be worn again and again.
