5 Lessons in Style I Learned from Adele: Can I say I wish I wrote this post? As a huge fan of Adele, I can say YES YES YES to all of this and a FUCK YES to the stunning Vogue images used to illustrate the post.

Inspiration: Best of the 40s: I’ve always been a huge fan of Casey’s style, but I love that we’re secretly kindred spirits in our love of 1940s style. This post has some great images about what’s so fab from the era.

10 Ways to Feel Rich is lovely. I know that a special lunch at Commander’s Palace always makes me feel oh-so decadent and frivolous (at an easy $25).

The lovely and thoughtful Sally shares tips on creating distance when consuming media in “Ways to Cultivate Media Immunity.”  I know as a blogger, I feel like I consume so much that it’s overwhelming and suffocating.

I love this embellished collar DIY over at …Love, Maegan. I could see this being such a versatile piece with tons of options for customizing.

I enjoyed the 1940s looks as well. I was surprised to see models in that era were really skinny just like today.

They really are still so slim! It’s like the Marilyn Monroe story– how everyone’s like, “She’s a size 10!” but when you consider for size changes & vanity sizing, she’s really a size 6 or so?

Hey lady! :) Just wanted to say a big thank you for including the link to my 40s inspiration post. Totally brightened my (otherwise terribly crappy) day! :)

I’m happy to, honey! I always love your posts, even if I don’t show it often enough.

Yes Adele can sing and she has a nice sense of style and fashion. Or atleast her artist have these contemporary attributes, combined with a retro flare.

I love Adele, she is amazing … it’s just too bad that she was photoshopped within an inch of her life, in the Vogue article because the pictures are stunning and would have been even more so, if she had been left untouched.

Sadly, so! They look amazing, but I almost feel like I should expect to see such extensive airbrushing…. :/
