The Pursuit of Classiness

Ask me anything   Submit   Tags Masterpost   

A blog dedicated to my favorite classic Hollywood stars and movies. A tribute to a bygone era. And a place for less-than-coherent fangirling.

If you aren't an Audrey Hepburn fan, you probably won't like it here...

Aside from Audrey, some of my favorite stars are: Joan Greenwood, Steve McQueen, Gene Kelly, Myrna Loy, Fred Astaire, Donald O'Connor, Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Tierney, Grace Kelly, and Lena Horne.

I also have a slight Edith Head obsession...

Thank you! I know I’ve really let this blog run down, so it’s nice to see that there are people who are still interested :3
