Sighs and Whispers

Recently, we had the great pleasure to meet fashion historian, Laura Helms. One of Laura’s many projects is Sighs and Whispers, a favorite blog of ours. Laura painstakingly searches through magazine and other archives to inspire her readers with the best of primarily 60s and 70s fashion. The Ulula in Alabaster made an appearance in her current post of stunning vintage photos of sunglasses. We are extremely honored, particularly as she rarely posts about current fashion! Please visit the full post here, and follow Sighs and Whispers for a beautifully curated journey through fashion history.
