GIVE AWAY- Tangee Lipstick

Hello Everyone!
We are very excited for our first GIVE-AWAY!!
We discovered this vintage lipstick called Tangee. This iconic lipstick has been around for over 70 years! Although the lipstick is orange it "goes on clear and gradually turns into the perfect shade for you...It moisturizes lips to prevent drying and chapping and looks freshly applied for hours." We've never used it but it sounds pretty cool and wanted to give you readers a chance to try it.
So tell your friends, tell girls at work, tell your mom, tell anyone who you would think would like to enter.

TO ENTER: all you have to do is follow the blog publicly (if you follow privately we cannot see you), and post a link to this give-away on some sort of social network (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Blog, etc.) then attach a link to your post in a comment. Please only enter once. Remember not to include any personal info.
The deadline is November 26th.
The winner will be posted within that week.
*We regret to say this giveaway is extended to only those in the United States and Canada at this time* 

Hope you win!
Sincerely, Vera, Viola and Viv

Eyeglasses are for Movie Stars

All three of us wear glasses. It is interesting to note that according to the Vision Council of America, about 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. However, especially in Old Hollywood, images of glamorous stars rarely included glasses. So finding images of bespeckled actors can be fun. Here are some familiar faces in frames.

Robert Cummings, Doris Day, Phil Silvers

Marilyn Monroe

Grace Kelly

Grace & Marilyn's Glasses

Gregory Peck

James Dean

James & Gregory's Glasses
Here is a list of links to places where you can buy vintage glasses:
*We have not purchased glasses from any of these sources*

Outfit Post- An Autumn School Day

Its so nice to have some weather that isn't blazing hot or ice cold. With the weather beconming quite mild, it was a perfect time to take photos for this fall outfit. School has been officially in session for a little over two months now. I thought it would be fun to dress the part. We will be expecting some weather in the 90's soon! No autumn or winter clothes will be needed here, we took these photos for this fall outfit in the nick of time!

Reading intently on a park bench...

Pitfalls in English

 Accompanied with some vintage educational subject books, with my two french braids and penny loafers I thought I looked quite appropriate for school.

Time for an English lesson!
