The Thin (Wo)Man

If anyone has ever watched ‘The Thin Man’ series, then you’ll no doubt be acquainted Myrna Loy’s fabulous wardrobe throughout the films. From gorgeous suits with huge fur collars, to slinky evening wear, she plays Nora Charles to perfection; sarcastically witty and simply dazzling.

My outfit today isn’t what I would really consider close to any of her outfits, but it is lightly inspired. A simple black dress with a velvet blazer.

As I said, it’s lightly inspired. There’s only one Nora Charles..and only one actress beautful enough to create her for us.

Animal Print Antics

Today my dear friend Genesis came over to spend the day with me. We decided to do a little photoshoot, but when we get together it’s hard to take anything seriously. Most of our pictures came out quite hilarious, with me creating poses such as ‘Pensive” and “Help Me” and “Aunt Beatrice”…

but we DID manage to grab a couple pretty good ones so I thought I would share them with you.

Props to Gen, who usually prefers shooting landscapes, etc, for her fab people skills! Ha!

XO! -S.

props to Gen!
