I'm very happy with how my hair has turned out today just by brushing gently through my curls achieved by rollers! For a couple of months i have just been wearing my curls just as they came out but today i have found by just going through with a brush it gives more bouncy volume, with a much sleeker look!

Clark Gable.

One of my favourite classic Hollywood actors. He's so handsome.

Gilda- 'Put the blame on mame'

Gilda 1946. Glenn Ford & Rita Hayworth plays the ultimate femme fatale. I absolutely adore the costumes & music in this plus the love-hate relationship between Gilda & Johnny.

A couple of weeks back i got rid of my dip dye for once and for all & also had my hair cut shorter! It hasn't been this short in years but i had wanted to change the length for so long as it's much easier to replicate vintage hair styles with more manageable hair! Also i have gone red, which I'm liking very much.
My younger darling sister has also been kindly rolling my hair around 3 or 4 times a week! So now i have the hair i have wanted for months! I'm trying to experiment for different styles of curls so i can replicate some of my favourite movie stars styles. I will keep it updated on here.


Clark Gable postcard from the 40s.

Selection of 7 James Dean postcards from the 80s.

As i have been off Uni, i have finally had the chance to rekindle my love for Old Hollywood even more. As i had been so busy with work & assignments i'd had no time to discover some new loves! Now having the time to watch more, i feel even more inspired than ever to be a full fledged vintage lover. With this i feel a little giddy & i get a little obsessed with certain movie characters or stars so i'm just starting a small collection of postcards. Ala Clark Gable & James Dean are the start of my collection. I got all of these from ebay for ridiculously good prices & the charm i find is that they are old, having been loved by a previous owner.
