Dolores Daiquiri!

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
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.

A Salute To Redheads

Myrna Loy
Just wanted to celebrate and salute every gorgeous redhead out there. Being one myself and with a new haircut I am somewhat proud of my 'tribe'.
The first shot below is of myself  just after getting my new short haircut. I had long hair for ten years and it was time to go. The cut and style is a cross between 1940s Hollywood actress Jane Wyman and 1950s singer Keely Smith. Hope you like it!! All the other shots are of famous sexy redheads (not sure if they are all natural) I admire.
