Okay so in the last couple of posts or so, i had discussed how we should embrace the new, yes? Well I want to go back look into the past, namely the 1950's, fashion that is influenced by past styles, a past starlet, and so on. All of these elements have to do with the past, I hope you enjoy the post! The wing-tipped glasses here, scream '50s to me! And though this may be off-topic, I completely love the pose!
This picture is of the Bernardo Sandal, created in 1946 by none another than Bernard and Bertha Rudofsky. This picture was taken during the 1950s, by Bernard Rudofsky himself. Notice the Eiffel tower in the backround. Shoes. Paris at your feet. What more could you ask for?!
There is some definite class in this piece. It has the sense of 1950s sophistication.
If you do not recognize this glamorous siren, she was the star of Gidget, you know that 1959 surf movie? This is Sandra Dee. She is one of the starlets where back in the day Hollywood truly embodied class and style that dazzled!

Speaking of style that is Scarlett Johansson. I think she takes tips from the past, and is modern day siren. Scarlett is usually seen sporting a red lip, hair that is curled to perfection, and carries a drop-dead gorgeous presence about her.

Inspirational Quote from the past: "Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it." - Danny Kaye (The star of White Christmas in 1954)

Now to end this I'm adding my own personal touch. This does not have to do with the past, but this poem is something that I have recently discovered. And I cannot help but share it.

I carry your heart with me

by E.E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me

(i carry it in my heart)

i am never without it

(anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)

I fear no fate

(for you are my fate, my sweet)

i want no world

(for beautiful you are my world, my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud

of the budand the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

I love the styles from the 1950's although I think things with a modern twist and elements from
50's fashion are more wearble!

I love the 950s but the 1930s and 40s are my favorite

What a fantastic post! I love the quotes/poems that you put in. Very inspiring.
I agree about Scarlett, she is a modern day siren. Sometimes she annoys me, but she's gorgeous and sexy!
