Lucille Ball

I found this adorable dress that reminds me a bit of I Love Lucy. Sort of a shirtwaist dress with a pattern of small white hearts on a navy background.

I remember watching “I Love Lucy” all the time as a kid. Lucille Ball is such a comic genius. Man, the grape crushing seen and all the hijinks she got up to with the neighbors. Not to mention a pioneer of the TV industry. At the time few woman were respected or had any say so in the running of the business side of Hollywood, she was really calling her own shots with DesiLu.

I hadn’t realized til recently that she was also a model before being in TV and movies. Wow, she was gorgeous. Didn’t have the signature red head look yet though. Found a great website with hi-res images of old movie stars.
