The Aquascutum is very reminiscent of the prairie look. J'adore the fact that you keep including vintage pictures of La Lohan. She's gorgeous and so is her style. :)

La Belette Rouge said...

I am surprised that Michelle Obama hasn't gotten the nickname "Tank Girl".

I am looking for wife-beater tanks that don't stretch out. It is harder to find than it sounds.
