Retro Glam

I apologize for being so absent from blogging this week. One of my twins, Little Mr. G, has been sick. He’s battling a nose and throat infection, and was put on antibiotics on Monday. It’s always difficult to see your children sick, but it’s particularly tough this time because he’s only 5 months old. Fortunately, he is feeling a lot better today so I found a moment to flip through the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar while all three children were napping. Have you seen these stunning photos of Katherine Heigl? This is the ultimate in retro chic.

I am particularly lusting over the Prada dress in this last photo. I feel like I NEED it, but at $3,565, it’s just a wee bit out of my price range, so I guess I will have to adore it from afar. (Actually, I love everything about that last photo – the gorgeous dress, the adorable pumps, that terrace, the wrought-iron patio furniture with the striking cushions, and the vase of lovely hydrangeas... Just heavenly.)

If you would like to see more photos from this shoot and read the accompanying article, visit the Harper's Bazaar website.  And speaking of Harper’s Bazaar, Amazon is currently offering a 1-year subscription for just $8 or a 2-year subscription for $15. I LOVE magazines, and I have a tough time restraining myself at the newsstand, so I jumped at the chance to save some hard-earned dollars on a must-read. I thought some of you might appreciate the tip, as well.

What about you? What magazines do you love? And do you love these 1950’s style fashions as much as I do?


  1. I am an In Style junkie! I just love when it arrives each month!

    As for retro chic styles, I think they are fantastic. Mad Men is style heaven for me!

    So glad you are back.

  6. Hi there! I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it! I absolutely love the 50's style and would wear it today if I could get away with it! Hope you have a great weekend! ~Andrea
