Throwback Thursday: Audrey Hepburn

Humble.  Angelic.  BeautifulSelfless.  Woman.  Belgium-born actress, Audrey Hepburn, stands out in the Lipstick Movement lineage.  Her words and elegance are timeless.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only  words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never  alone.”

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe  in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be  going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that  tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is  reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that  she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping  yourself, the other for helping others.”

“I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I’d  invented it, because it is very true.”


Throwback Thursday: Diana Ross in Mahogany

           Ms. Ross Mahogany Train

Mahogany, a stylish classic.  Ms. Diana Ross played an upscale apparel designer that relocated from Chicago to Rome, Italy.  However, the character wasn’t a stretch from the actress.  Ms. Ross “came out” as the movie’s costume designer, dazzling the screne with avant-garde looks only she could own.  No doubt that she is the captain of team fabulous!

Throwback Thursday: Dutch Fashion Reel 1969

Amsterdam is aglow this weekend with its 9th Amsterdam Fashion Week (ADW).  Rightfully, I did a little digging for retro styles of the Netherlands and stumbled upon a segment of a film called, ‘Dutch Fashion Reel’ from 1969.  It’s a small clip packed with an array of cool digs.  Some of which have circled back, thus being the story of fashion…
