Beauty Icon: Lucille Ball

With her trademark hair, Lucille Ball was the epitome of a fiery redhead. I would describe her look as quirky/cool and always classic. She rocked her curly pomp with defined eyes and lips, bold red. She starred with her husband in one of the most popular shows of all time, "I love Lucy," in the 50's.

Interesting facts:
-Born a brunette
-the first woman to own her own film studio
-During the 1933 filming of the movie "Roman Scandals" young Lucille Ball needed to have her eyebrows entirely shaved off for the roll. They never grew back.
-She was fired from working at an ice cream store because she kept forgetting to put bananas in banana splits

"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age."-Lucy

aww,betty white!

A little bit Lucy..

This 50's blouse is my favorite vintage find lately, I adore the pattern and pan collar!

My go-to braids for summer..a bit more interesting than a topknot and a perfect alternative to a blowout in the sweltering heat. I plait the back(4 braids)when it's still slightly wet and just blow dry the bangs..there is nothing worse than using hot air when it's 100 out!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

I <3 Lucy! She is my all time fave comedian. Growing up watching reruns gave me the belief that you can be beautiful, smart, and funny.I say she was a great role model for this little girl.
I'm new to your blog and I love the vintage feel to it. Will now be following.
