Looking at those pics I can still remember the smell my late 70s Halston perfume. Ahh, good times.
If you get the chance, I would recommend the 2019 Halston Documentary on Prime. It’s a good look at the guy without abject devotion to his talent. It avoided the cocaine fueled tantrums but definitely didn’t paint him as a saint either (though honestly it could and should have gone there). Read more
As a lover of vintage ghost stories I’ve been a Valancourt fan for years and have a number of their books, the first volume of this series included. They also are animal rescue advocates so even more points. On top of that they also have publish long forgotten and generally overlooked authors from the LGBT community… Read more

Or have time to watch a cooking show before shopping. Now you can skim a dozen different recipes and watch a few videos in less time, assuming you know… Read more
You know Caroline Bingley will be first in line.
“While I actually prefer the 2005 movie adaption of Pride and Prejudice...” Disagree. The BBC version is the greatest that is, has been, or will be in existence.
“Slices of [Darcy] cake will be available for visitors.” They’re EATING Mr. Darcy???
I don’t know if I’m more horrified or impressed by this standing cake-man.
