Hello, readers! I hope everyone is settling into the holiday season nicely. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, the lights sure are pretty! I've gone on a nice family trip:

I'm visiting my mother's side of the family in Panama, and I highly doubt I'll do any posting until I come back in the New Year. Til then, happy holidays!

A Gem from the JET Magazine Archives

I was doing some research for my job and I came across a great link that had articles and photos from JET magazine from the 1940s and 50s (I swear, I was working!). I love coming across these old magazines because it's so hard to find photos or articles about classic black pinups. A lovely little piece on Jamaican actress and fashion designer Tessa Prendergast:

So romantic. Like something from the movies. Where aren't the princes fighting over me?

Retrofit: Fashionable in Midtown

It's not nice to take photos of people when they're not looking (as a matter of fact, I'm fairly sure it's illegal), but I had to snap a picture of this fashionable woman who I spotted near Grand Central a few weeks ago. Love the hat and her coat just reminds me I need a bit more leopard in my life.
