Sunday’s Best: Lily Lemontree

If you’re following the posts on My Little Boudoir you will know two things; that I have started a weekly series called “Sunday’s Best” where I showcase a favorite blogpost or series from another blog -and- that I have a fondness of a blog called Lily Lemontree.

Vogue (…not the magazine)

As you may have noticed by listening to the My Little Boudoir Soundtrack, I love Madonna’s song Vogue (I also love the magazine). My favorite part of the song is when she names the silver screen movie stars. Here is a visual rendition for your viewing pleasure… Greta Garbo… …and (Marilyn) Monroe… …(Marlene) Dietrich… …and …
