A few of my lady idols… ❤
Unique Vintage’s Halloween Collection is absolutely adorable on every level…and totally my speed, as 50s fabulousness is concerned. ❤
The bat and web sweaters might be my favorite but when Hallows is involved, it’s awfully hard to choose…
I don’t do Valentine’s Day. I think the only time I sent Valentines out was when I was in lower school (so that’s third grade and below), frankly under duress. There was candy involved, though, so I would generally get what remained – nice incentive at that age!
I just don’t think anyone should feel obligated to do something nice, let alone nice AND sappy, just because the calendar says so – therein lies my distaste for what it’s become.
Funnily enough, though, a Facebook memory popped up of this (incredibly rare form!) photo. It was taken many moons ago, rather in defiance of the 14th, and very much with a mocking tone.
I do have a lot of friends in pin-up and vintage automotive photography so it was equally a (positive, in this case, however) nod to them.
I guess we all have skeletons, right? With red heart-shaped glasses and red lipstick, in my case!
Just because I adore her. . .
