As many of us were sad to hear, one of the world’s most famous American actresses passed away last week. Lauren Bacall has been featured on our blog before as one of our favorite vintage icons, but in light of recent events we thought we would pay her another tribute, and you can never really get enough of this fabulous gal anyway!

Lauren Bacall did just this, yet she set herself apart from others yearning for the spotlight with her sultry appearance, seductive voice, and overall jaw-dropping effect on everyone.… Read more
The past two weeks we have been profiling some information on our garments. While we know you love the vintage style and designs there sure is a lot of different options out there! So how do you know the difference between a demi cup bra, a push up bra, and a bullet bra? Keep reading to learn more and find which fit may be the best for you.

Last week, we started writing about the small differences that can separate different types of lingerie. Whether its between a Fully Fashioned French Heel, or a Fully Fashioned Euro Heel (see last week’s blog!), the definitive terms of lingerie can sometimes leave you feeling confused. This week, we’re focusing on the different types of shapewear that you can buy.
We’ll start with the Girdle, which can come in a panty style, or an open bottom style. This garment is a nice alternative to a garter belt because it still has the garter straps to hold up your stockings, but also provides shaping and tummy control. … Read more

In today’s society, we are bombarded with ads and images everywhere we go. It’s no secret that beauty and fashion play a large role in our society, but sometimes it can become a little too much, and every beautiful face plastered on a billboard becomes a blur.

One of our favorite faces of fashion is Suzy Parker, and on today’s blog we’ll be remembering her stylish career.
Suzy was born in 1932 and followed in the path of her older sister, model Dorian Parker.… Read more
