And weʼre back with another vintage style icon! This week, Josephine Baker. Although she was American born, she became a French citizen and excelled in dancing, singing, and acting.

We canʼt seem to think of anyone more glamourous than a beauty queen–after all, their career is to be beautiful! Thatʼs why this week weʼre spotlighting Jane Blondell. Although her career included much more than being a beauty queen, this vintage lady got her start in pageants then branched out to the silver screen and television roles.

In her everyday life, she portrayed the classically put together style that today we regard as vintage. Pillbox hats like this werenʼt just for church, but an amazing way to pull an entire outfit together.… Read more
