Uh-oh. I’ve got the 5 year itch. The one that gnaws at the back of my mind in whispery little breaths of air: “Certainly you want to be blonde, you do. Veronica Lake, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis, just think…”
And I don’t mean for this to read as a tumblr, but I simply must post photos of demure and seductive blondes from eras past. Well, one specific era. Since writing about my dream date in old Hollywood, I can’t stop the stream of consciousness that flashes images of the golden girls from the Golden Age before my painted eyes. That sulty, darkened honey-blond of the 1930s. One eye covered with a finger wave, curls flowing down the back in a U. You know the image.
Here are the bombshell references that I may or may not be be taking to a little vintage salon in Burbank tomorrow…wink.
“I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter… I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that.” -Veronica Lake
And some modernized versions of the glam, old Hollywood blonde.
