In classical noir movie Too Late For Tears (1949) costume designer Adele Palmer draws attention to the actresses’ small waists using belts with charms.

If you like Hollywood girls’ look and got hour-glass body shape, check TFJstore on etsy.com: there is a good selection of hand made belts with charms.

My favourites are silver with coins and golden with sun pendant. By the way, these accessories will be perfect partners for monochrome clothes.

Pretty Little Things Black Ring Detail Waist Belt will be good addition to a small white dress. You can detach the hoop and replace it with Brass Floral Dragonfly Pendant with Patina or Gardanne Beads Golden Autumn Small Oak Leaf Pendant from artbeads.com for more sophisticated look.

Girls and Cigarettes. Part III

Modern society is full of contradictions: those so called “most progressive minds of our time” are crusading to wipe all smokers off from surface of Mother Earth against smoking and at time glamourizing severe obesity.

Sorry, you can tell me whatever, but the weight of Tess Holliday is not healthy

Health campaigners would chop me in pieces explain me that I’m wrong but I think old movie stars with cigarettes look very seductive and charming.

By the way, Original Sin (2001) with Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas is remake of La sirene du Missisipi. French version is philosophical and bit boring (sorry, monsieur Truffaut) and Original Sin is all about action and passion.
