I hope you had a wonderful celebration. Unfortunately I had to take an emergency break cause my computer just decided to give up. I lost important pieces of work, my picture library is a mess and I spent the entire week trying to solve the problem. So far there is loss and pain but I know it's not the end of the world and I hope I'll be over on this soon...

After careful consideration I've decided not to attend on this fabulous event and not to go for this fabulous dress. However, I really hope you'll be able to get your hands on the pieces you like and I can't wait to hear your shopping experiences from all over the world...and dear ladies, please be nice to each other in the stores.

Instead of the crowded shops don't you wish you could shop this collection under these circumstances...?

"When Ava Gardner get in a taxi the driver knows at once she's Ava Gardner. It's the same for Lana Turner or Elizabeth Taylor, but not for me. I'm never Grace Kelly, I'm always someone who looks like Grace Kelly."

LITTLE GIFT GUIDE
I wouldn't mind having these books under my Christmas tree: Valentino: Themes and Variations, Patrick Demarchelier, Charmed by Audrey, From the Private Archive of Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting, Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese. I certainly love this rocket chic bootie and these retro platforms, not to mention their prices are acceptable. Find some great deals on Splendid and Ella Moss. Cute Christmas party favors here. And of course you never know what treasure you may find for a really good price in these fabulous sites: Hautelook, Billion Dollar Babes & The Outnet.

When it comes to glasses I'm crazy for the cat eye style. Just found this lovely shop on Etsy which has various selection of fabulous vintage cat eye eyeglasses and I just ordered this one below.

They are from the 50s or 60s and marked Selecta France and I just can't wait to have them...meow meow...

I think these sessions produced extraordinarily beautiful and unique images of Marilyn. The Last Sitting is the title of a book and photo series of Marilyn Monroe by photographer Bert Stern. The photo shoot was commissioned by Vogue magazine in late June 1962, taking place over three daily sessions, just six weeks before she died...

I've mentioned in an earlier post that I've attended some photography courses during the summer. Well, I'm still learning and practicing and happy to share some of my shots here on Absolutely Ladylike with You. I took these pictures in August and this is my super gorgeous and very talented choreographer friend who helped me a lot with modeling for me the last couple of months, so I can become a real professional one day...Thank You Darling.

I hope your week if off to a fabulous start...

SIDE NOTE: I found so many nice, high resolution images about Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly on this site, that I've decided to start a new series named A Cup of Grace. It will contain images and quotes from the divas. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Lulu Guinness creations are so cheerful, playful, colorful and fun...they are full of love, full of life. I really adore this modern chic style and they are the very favorites of Dita von Teese and Sophie Dahl as well. What do you think?

My favorite of this season is this cute and very feminine puff-shouldered wool blazer along with this elegant dusty-pink suede strappy sandals. I also love the knitted wool poncho and this pretty '60s-inspired purple crepe dress.
