Inspired by Edith Head



On Twitter I read a quote from Edith Head (supplied by the wonderful vintage blogger My Vintage Vogue).
The quote, " Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady."

I could not agree more (except when I am wearing a Star Wars inspired outfit of course!). Edith Head was an American designer ad stylemaker who worked in the film indutsry creating looks for stars like Audrey Hepburn. Her styles were then copied around the country and women were wearing Edith Head inspired outfits from California to New York.

pink blouse - thrifted
pencil skirt - thrifted
t-strap heels - thrifted

Lauren, this is fabulous. I have been hunting for a blog like this but always seemed to come away uninspired. If the clothes were great the writing and intellectual component was always kind of...meh. But your darling blog has has refreshingly creative little tidbits here and there, like the Edith Head quote from Vogue- just great. Looking forward to following Dear Golden and, quite soon, buying some of your goodies! Cheers, Lily @ bigBANG studio
