|Vivien Leigh - Source|
You may have noticed me playing around with headers and name changing for the past couple of days, I've been rethinking the name of my blog for a while and ever since feeling more at ease about blogging in the last week or so I thought a change name was in order. But actually coming to think of a new name is all but easy. And attempt after attempt I finally change up with Dear Ms. Leigh.
I somewhat wanted to use my own surname but then I didn't want the entire world knowing everything about me, so I replaced it with the surname of possibly the actress that made me appreciate vintage, the black and white world and the 1930's much earlier then I ever realized - Vivian Leigh. Everyone (or at least they should) know her from playing that insurmountable female force of Scarlet O'Hara in Gone With the Wind - a film we always had a version of since I was a child, a film I could watch and never tire. She was an actress of an incredible era, she had a presence and a beauty on screen that I have never seen since. She was possibly caught in the shadow of her husband Laurence Oliver and her reputation for being difficult and her troubles with bipolar disorder went before her. Nevertheless the films she did make are timeless, and so is her beauty.
Dear Ms. Leigh will still feature the same lively mix of vintage, baking to crafts and being that English lass in the US. Hopefully the warmer months ahead will allow my camera to go on more adventures and these pages, however virtual will come to document growing up with a vintage flair.
