I am madly in love with anything vintage and have been for over 20 years or so now. The appeal for me with the 1940s and 1950s started when I was a teenager because I just didn't find the modern lifestyle appealing or romantic. So from about the age of seventeen I was hooked on the clothing, the furniture and the music. I can't get enough and enjoy being around others who love it as much as me. What a way to live! I wouldn't ask for it any other way. Now I can write a blog about my lifestyle and the things I enjoy and feel passionate about.

Edith Head - Costumier and Genius


Edith Head


Just wanted to raise a toast to the fabulous late costume designer Edith Head whom I adore!!

Edith Head (October 28, 1897 – October 24, 1981)  was an American Costume Designer who had a very long career in Hollywood that earned her eight Academy Awards. This was more than any other woman in history.
 
She had a outstanding career designing for movie stars and the celebrity set which included:
Mae West
Veronica Lake
Ingrid Bergman
Betty Davis
Elizabeth Taylor
Grace Kelly
Doris Day
Marlene Deitrich 
and the list goes on...................

Here is a sensational book to purchase if you don't have it and love design. This was given to me for Christmas and I was very excited to receive it.


Some of her wonderful creations
