These movies (one depicting a week in the life of Marilyn Monroe and the other a biopic about the life of J. Edgar Hoover) could both easily have been botched. When trying to resurrect a larger-than-life icon, there are many potential pitfalls. Sometimes acting can give way to mere impersonation. Sometimes a script can dissolve into cheeky nostalgia with no substance underneath.

Burlesque babes will love love love these new shirred shoulder gloves (available now from Black Cat Closet)!
These silky gloves catch the light beautifully and come in 10 different eye-poppingly bright colors such as emerald green, fuschia, red, purple, and more. They also feature ruching all the way up their sides, which makes them sit elegantly on your arm (no unsightly bunching or clumping here).
These days, everyone needs a reusable shopping bag (or two) for grocery trips. But why shouldn’t your shopping bag match the rest of your vintage style?
The answer is: it should! So take a moment to look through some of these cuties and find the one that fits. Ranging from polka dots to hula girls to cherries to Wonder Woman to Marilyn herself, these bags are real keepers that won’t clash with your carefully cultivated retro flair.
Forget that old boring wallet you’ve been clinging to. It’s high time for a change!
Retro cigarette cases are the way to go. They’re slimmer, sleeker, and more eye-catching than that tired leather wallet. Think of this as the more organized more streamlined new you.
