Blame it on the blizzard that arrived Sunday morning, and stayed right through till this morning...
|Out the back door (we used to have a gazebo)|
|The walkway out front - that's 5 feet of snow folks, and you can see the levels of old storms, like midden in a archaeological dig...|
But I am ready for spring. And though I am dressing in a markedly utilitarian fashion these days, I am starting to long for some glamour. I need an invite to a fancy soiree, I need to be lounging around not in woollies, but in something more exotic, something Carole Lombard would wear around the house.
|My eyes are sad like that too, Carole..|
Carole Lombard is one of my favourite actresses. She was funny, dramatic, heartbreaking. And her personal life was as glamorous as her movies, what with first husband William Powell and then Clark Gable, to whom she was married when she tragically died in a plane crash during World War II.
But the style!
If my modern day muse is Miss Sofia, I would do well to add a dash of Miss Lombard into the mix as well, methinks:
|I need wide leg trousers for my brogues...|
|A little tweed for the jaunts around the park...I love the cut of this jacket!|
|If there's a more perfect coat, well I'd like to see it!|
|I'd wear this in a heartbeat!|
|How's this for an early fall/early spring colour story?|
|This screams early "borrowed from the boys" in a very classy way!|
Carole's style was timeless and remains fresh and cool:
I knew I had it bad when I ordered the following Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti black silk skirt from ebay:
I just needed a little glamour for Spring. I think Carole would approve!
Anyone else out there a Carole Lombard fan? What's your favourite Carole movie? Mine has to be My Man Godfrey. I adore it.
Anyone else feeling any glamorous urges? Really, all I'm asking is to take the flannel sheets off the bed!
Have a great day and stay safe out there!
