I don't want to make a big deal about it but...yesterday I finished sewing that cute little 1930s floral appliqué onto this beautiful, authentic 1940s chocolate rayon dress. It was a pretty darn good day. 😊😊😊 dress: @lawrenceofbaltimorevintage
#WCW A spotlight on a very underrated actress & inventor, Hedy Lamarr. A babe & a genius ahead of her time. Beginning of WW II, Hedy & composer George Antheil developed a technology of spread spectrum & frequency hopping. The original idea was patented & was meant to stop enemies from blocking signals to radio-controlled missiles. Now incorporated into Wi-Fi, CDMA, & Bluetooth. Although, never receiving money for her invention, they passed their creations on to the US Navy. It wasn't until 1997, 3 years before her death that Hedy received recognition for her invention. First pictures are from the Ziegfeld Girl film, 1941. Pictured with Lana Turner & Judy Garland. Ironically, I have been wanting to make a post for her & just learned today that Diane Kruger will be portraying Lamarr in a TV series. #ziegfeldgirl#hedylamarr#oldhollywood

Vincent Cassel. "People pretend to be nice, people pretend to be smooth, and polite and everything, but this is only an appearance, because the way we're built as human beings is only in paradox and contradictions." #vincentcassel
HAPPY 83rd BIRTHDAY to the queen of italian cinema, Sophia Loren ❤ La Loren has always been one of my favorite actresses and one of my biggest inspirations. Her movies always help me to feel better on a bad day, especially the ones with Marcello Mastroianni! She's such a wonderful women and I just admire her so much. Therefore I wish her only the best! 🌹
