She was a true Fancy Disaster... I have always been very drawn to her. She was independent, strong, feminine, yet she had a bit of a tortured nature that I can relate to. She was also WAY ahead of her time. Louise was a dancer, actress, seductress, writer and all around bad-ass. She is credited as the woman that single handedly made the bob haircut popular. I wish I could have met her.
This is my test... The first shameless plug to my shop of many. One of my favorite vendors of all times, Esteban, slinger of Peruvian Art (mainly jewelry) has an uncanny ability of knowing when I have cash. I have to say, this would be annoying if he wasn't the sweetest man alive. I sell them for $8 but have seen them on the market for much much more. Fully adjustable silver plated bands (very light weight) with gorgeous gemstones. Onyx, turquoise, opal, lapis, quarts... As long as he comes to visit they will be one of my only NEW items in my vintage shop in Long Beach, CA.
