I have a special love for Carole Lombard. (That's her on my blog banner.) Whenever things get too serious, I try to channel her as Irene in My Man Godfrey. I also cuss like a sailor, and it makes me feel better to know that she did too. In honor of her birthday today, I'm sharing this recent ebay score of mine, a British magazine from 1934 that features Carole in a "smart grey suit" she designed herself. The rest of the issue doesn't disappoint, featuring the pattern for the dress on the cover (if only I could sew!), snappy pajamas, and an outfit that inspires me to wear a beret.
