Because I have chronic numbface.
Which is chronic bitchface when half your face is numb for the day. Yes, blame it on the dentist and being a redhead.
So, umm, a bit wierd doing photos when half my face can't move. And it's not like I don't have some awesome new 50s furniture to restore (you'll see them when they're finished)....so I got some work done instead.
So instead of looking at me, some pretty pictures from a book I picked up a couple of weeks ago called 'The Women We Wanted to Look Like'.
This is such a gorgeous book, written by Brigid Keenan and published in the UK in 1977.
It details a huge number of stylish women and the clothes they wore, their personal style and why they stood out from the crowd.

The usual suspects are all here, but there are a number of little-known fashion innovators in here which makes it all the more interesting.

I like this pic of Helen Bennett so much it's currently the profile pic on our facebook page.
The above ad was risque at the time...and who'd say no to having a body like that? I certainly wouldn't!
