Fabulous Ladies...

Inspired by fellow Vinatge bloggers
who are totally fashion oriented
I thought I would start featuring some of my favorite
fashion and movie idols
especially those who would be considered Vintage...
Growing up (Gasp)
before Cable T.V.
I remember watching all sorts of black and white movies, musicals,
Sunday was synonymous with Shirley Temple
Errol Flynn in Pirate movies
Maureen O'Hara in anything!
I'm starting out with Vivian Leigh
I have to admit that I used to
imitate some of her lines from GWTW as a teenager
call me eccentric whatever!
I would stand in the mirror and recite in the style of her banter
"Pea green with envy"
say "Ashleigh"
I just loved her style...

Unless you live under a rock
Everyone knows her as Scarlett O'Hara
Blanche Dubois from A Streetcar named Desire
But have you ever seen any of her other
wonderful movies?
Not to mention some of the stunning Hollywood stills of her
what an amazingly beautiful woman
that gaze of hers is what always gets me...

Love these pants
Haven't I seen this look in Anthropologie?
Shouldn't we wear more hats?
Smoldering (Stylish)
you can just wonder what is she thinking...
Couldn't a contemporary starlet wear this today?
I don't know if they could top her though.
If you'd like to see a film lesser known by later generations of hers
This movie is one of my favorites

Robert Taylor is the leading man.
Any favorites of yours you'd like to share?
I'll be doing this weekly.
Happy Tuesday!
