    Dearest V
    Just how beautiful is it possible for a human being to be?
    And that hair… did she create the 80s by remote control through time?
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

      I never saw that before, the antecedent to the 80’s curly bob!

    Holy (fill in the blank)! Stunned wonder and hello this is why she was the face of her century! Loved the Dandy’s comment–actually quite likely when you start digging in the Siouxsie Sioux archives, she was a film lover and everyone else followed her…

      That sounds right, Siouxsie-wise! And, the mesmerizing Greta doesn’t seem at all interested in that book, now does she?

        I thought the same thing! It is far more of a “want to see what I am reading? Well then come closer” kind of pose, non?

        Siren, femme fatale, seductress…

    I LOVE this hair on her.

    Also, what a fabulous chair to curl up and read a book in…or not read, as the case may be…

      She looks glorious and sexy and whether a chair or a couch – it’s capacious!

    What if it were an iPad or Kindle? Would she look as sexy?

    • August 15, 2013

      Definitely – she could be holding a hankie and the effect would be the same 😉 .

    There’s a book in this shot???

    • August 16, 2013

      Exactly! You are too funny 😉 .

    Ah, the Great Garbo! The face, the hair, the dress, the gaze. And I really identify with her attitude! That she epitomizes glamour and mystery doesn’t exactly hurt. *winks*

    I like those shoes! (That’s pretty girly of me sitting here in my Converse…)

    Why of course I have! It’s called…..mmmm…..ah, yes, “It’s in His Kiss”!
