Sugary Sorbet

This photo screams sweet summer innocence; like sugary sorbet.  The dresses + photo are from Petit Chic which was found through Pinterest.  I would use this color story for a summer soiree, little girl’s birthday or even a bridal or baby shower as an unexpected sweet twist.  Can’t you just see the bowls or bright pink + orange sorbet being served?

Carole Lombarde

Carole Lombard is one of my favorite actresses from the 1930s.  She was captivatingly beautiful and thanks to stunts like this where costume designer Travis Banton simply draped her in gold lame fabric, she was quite the vixen of the times.  The photo above is re-colored oh-so-beautifully with a color story that screams classic elegance.  I included the original black and white below as well.  Not sure of the photo credit – if anyone knows, I will gladly update!
