Looking at some of our featured vintage dresses got me thinking about the amazing Sophia Loren.  I consider her one of my Hollywood goddesses.  Her exotic beauty and impossibly fabulous figure has made her a living legend.  Loren has won an Oscar, Golden Globes, a Grammy, and many others.  At age 77, she is still as vivacious as ever.

One of my favourite of her films is "Houseboat" co-starring Cary Grant.  There's something really funny and goofy and romantic about this film.  I think I like the idea of a dad who is so panicked about raising his kids alone on a houseboat.  Loren has a serendipitous meeting with one of the children and the rest is history.

Here are some dresses that I could imagine Sophia wearing when feeling like a siren and when she is feeling like the girl next door...
