Hedy Lamarr once said, “Any girl can be glamorous.
All you have to do is stand still and look stupid.”
Hahahaha. Give yourself some credit, Hedy, it takes work to look as though you woke up looking all put together.
To give off an appearance of effortlessness, seemingly to transcend the mundane and the bland.
To exude an air of intrigue without innumerable waves of the editing wand.
To appear idealised, almost, but never to the point of being unattainable. Realistic done fancy, so to speak.
Looking glam is not easy. For someone as tomboyish and devil-may-care as myself, it was hard work. Hard work, indeed.
Not to be confused with glamour as a style, glam extends beyond the appearance. It’s external.
These ladies made it look terribly easy though.
Dixie of Inside Outer Beauty with that rocker babe chick chic she does so well.
Jane, Jane, how lovely art thou in thy silver screen ensemble.
Ann of Kremb de la Kremb does not fail to impress with her ever quirky, bold style.
I adore how Dawn Lucy of Fashion Should Be Fun has the most austere outfit yet she looks so sexy still.
Now, I’m very pleased to introduce Natasha of One Woman’s Style, our Guest Blogger for November. Let me be the first to say that she wears the Black Dress + Ankle Booties ensemble better between the two of us. The fit of the dress is genius for her shape and I like how sassy her boots are.
So there you have it.
The Fab 40s (which is comprised of Ann, Dawn Lucy, Dixie, Jane and I) getting all dolled-up for this time of the year wherein parties abound and social calendars fill up at the tip of a champagne flute. In the past, we’ve covered Marsala & Denim, Jumpsuits, Gingham, Lace, Leopard Print, Menswear Inspired, Fringe and Goth (but of course for October).
What about you?
What’s your idea of glam?
