I’m A Blush-A-Bye Baby!

Like this retro Max Factor ad says, “Beautiful blushes aren’t born… they’re made, baby!”

I don’t need to apply any rouge to my cheeks — I’m blushing enough with all the attention I received this week. Here’s why I’m a blush-a-bye baby:

I was invited to join the Vintage Roadshow, which is a select group of bloggers who blog about vintage fashion & vintage lifestyle — naturally I accepted, and here are this week’s links:

Debutante Clothing rings in the New Year in 1960s black and white paillettes.

The Vintage Traveler mourns the end of Bill Blass.

Glamoursplash begins a series of posts on swimwear through the ages.

iKonic does her part for the economy with her new weekly feature Vintage Cheap But Chic.

Also, I’d like to thank Kate Iverson, award winning art photographer, curator, writer, and Arts Editor for the Twin Cities produced art and style publication l’etoile magazine for noticing Here’s Looking Like You, Kid and naming it a “Cool Link” in the magazine’s blog, saying:

Remember Audrey Hepburn in simple turtlenecks and black capris or Molly Ringwald in lace and denim. For decades, we ladies have looked to the screen for a bit of fashion insight. Here’s Looking Like You, Kid is a kudos to the women of vintage Hollywood, the styles they wore and the attitude they used to rock them. With stockpile images of Hollywood’s famous and under-the-radar fashion icons and Youtube clips of the films, this pop culture/fashion blog illuminates the classic “Golden Age” of Hollywood fashion while brushing you up on 60’s, 50’s and even 30’s cinema. In these rough economic times, raiding the thrift stores and vintage shops has never been more necessary and fun! Whether your taste is mod fashion, sexy femme fatale or classic glamour, this site inspires you to achieve iconic looks with a seductive and retro feel.

How cool is that?!

Rather surprisingly, one of my posts made the 14th edition of the Feminist Carnival of Sexual Freedom & Autonomy! (Note: as the carnival title suggests, the list has mature topics/discussion; adults only.)
