Icons of vintage style: Carole Lombard

I just adore this woman!! She lived and breathed style. From the 1920s right through to her death in 1942 she was stunningly beautiful. If I could magically achieve any look from the 1930s – hers would be it!

Some beautiful new outfits in Series 4 of Downton Abbey so far. As always, Lady Edith seems to always sport the most stunning enembles sand revealing gowns. Many are bright colours and heavily beaded. She wears head scarves so well.

RIP Patty Andrews, 1918 – 2013

Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of swing-era vocal group the Andrews Sisters (and the center sister in the photo below), died today of natural causes. She was 94. A beautiful lady with a golden voice.

‘Bounce Me Brother With a Solid Four’ will always be my fav of their songs. Thought I’d post the clip here. Not the mention that we get to see Jewel McGowan and Dean Collins dance. 🙂

From the late Thirties through the Forties, the Andrews Sisters produced one hit record after another. Patty Andrews is in the centre
