Happy birthday Carole Lombard

Carole Lombard was my favourite actress from the 1930s and if I had only 1% of her style and beauty I would be happy! On October 6, 1942 she was killed when the TWA DC-3 plane she is traveling in crashes en route from Vegas to LA. She was only 33.

Art Deco graphic design

Yes…I know, graphic designer that I am –  I can’t go past Art Deco images that take my fancy from the 20s and 30s. Added some lovely favs today and others via a fellow blogger at Art Deco Gal who sometimes comes across images that I don’t have in my own collection. Enjoy :)

The cost of being a well-dressed flapper – 1926

Great article I found on the Retronaut website about high-end fashion in the 20s. The cost of  $346 in 1926 is equivalent to $4,414 today!! Clara Bow is the model here.
