Today my fashion inspiration is the beautiful 1930s silent films and actress Myrna Loy. With her exotic looks, Myrna was often typecast to play the vamp or portray Asian/Eurasian women during the early parts of her career. (Interesting!) Her acting career spanned nearly 4 decades! Myrna was married four times but never had any children (a pity, think how outrageously beautiful her offspring would be!). She is quoted to have said "Some perfect wife I am... I've been married four times, divorced four times, have no children, and can't boil an egg."

I would very much love this entire ensemble!

And, just for fun, a Myrna Loy tribute video from Basil Nelson who has very many wonderful tribute videos to screen gems of the past.
