  1. I totally love these styles but I can't imagine the upkeep...all the lingerie, panty hose, clothing, and then the hair!
    Ah, I suppose I can dream about it though.

  2. great photos and inspiration. Maybe the look is a little high-maintenance for me today, but that doesn't mean I can't borrow elements from these glamorous classic ladies.
