    Those photos are spectacular! Tragic that WWII forced Madame Yevonde to give up color photography. War. . . what is it good for? Also, is no one else as excited as I am by that ELVIS trailer? Lord have mercy!!!

    What a nice surprise to see you in my Oldster substack feed. I had no idea this blog has been around for 10years-I feel like I missed out-although so grateful you and Jenn started the pod. Great article-thank you for sharing.

    Back in just to say that the Madewell sweatshirt jacket featured in Monday’s post arrived and is NOT FRUMPY on shorty me. In fact, it is pretty great and I’ve a feeling that my cost per wear will be low, especially with the 20 percent off promo that is still going on. If anyone is on the fence, go for it!
