1946

Rebena has been spending Spring nights watching vintage flicks.  So far Rebena’s favorite flick has been a comedy from 1968 called The Party, featuring Peter Sellers.  After coming across this magical photograph of Ava Gardner and Burt Lancaster, Rebena will be sharing a bowl of popcorn with The Killers tonight!  This 1946 American film noir is based on the short story […]

Sexy Savages

Earth tones, suede and high laced boots are more than just a bohemian throwback.  They are essential pieces for a night on the prowl. We are loving this wild photograph that was featured in American Vogue.  British model Cara Delevingne is modelling alongside a grizzly bear.  Cara is looking like a mod, sexy savage while wearing Balenciaga’s pumpkin suede shift […]

Granny Squares

Granny square apparel is a cyclical fashion that peaked in the 1970’s. As Stitch ‘n Bitch series author Debbie Stoller describes: If you grew up in the seventies, as I did, you might fear the granny square–if only because, for a while, clothing was made of nothing else. Granny square vests, granny square shorts, granny square hats. Heck, I […]
