The cotton & elastane fabric is sourced in Italy and dyed in LA.
They remind me of underoos with the super heros adorned on them.
Think Chrissy Snow meets Diane Keaton in Annie Hall while smoking a joint before having sex with Woody Allen.
Each pair comes packaged in this cute priority mail envelope!

In Social Network As Lisbeth Salander Final transformation………..
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, bisexual, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (played by Rooney Mara) to investigate. In this months issue of W – Rooney Mara.
To prepare for the role of Lisbeth Salander, Rooney had her eyebrows bleached, her hair chopped, and her lip, brow, nose, and nipple pierced—all in one “very intense” day. Can we say certified BAD ASS, my type of chick-
Mara was inspired to act by going to see musical theatre and by watching old movies, like Gone with the Wind (1939), Rebecca (1940), andBringing Up Baby (1938), with her mother. She also wanted to be like her older sister, Kate Mara, (pictured here on the left)
a professional actress. Mara resisted pursuing acting as a child, stating to The Journal News that “it never seemed that honorable to me, and I guess I was always afraid that I might fail.” She won the role of Juliet, in Romeo and Juliet, after being signed up to audition by a friend, and acted in a few student films while at NYU. Mara then began pursuing a career in acting.
It’s funny how the things we say no to appeal to us down the line~ most of the time it is fear of failure holding us back. Just jump and don’t look back . VFJ
Mara landed her first lead role in the film Tanner Hall, starring Amy Sedaris and Tom Everett Scott, a story of four teenage girls set in a New England boarding school. Mara played Fernanda, who has an affair with a married family friend (Tom Everett Scott). The coming-of-age film was the debut feature by filmmakers Tatiana von Fürstenberg and Francesca Gregorini.
Mara dropped her first name, Patricia, to be known professionally by her middle name after working on the project. “I never really liked my first name,” Mara stated to Paper magazine. “I never felt like a Tricia. And Rooney is more memorable”.
And memorable she is!
This is why I’m addicted to Rooney Mara.
And of course my other latest addiction:.

VFJ presents your Vintage Vixen this month
Breaking ground from way of Jamaica.
Born in Jamaica in 1948, Grace Jones took the modeling world by storm as a fabulously androgynous 1970s supermodel—but soon, her unforgettable voice took center stage. Inspired by everything from David Bowie to reggae, Jones became a dance music diva, releasing albums like “Nightclubbing” and “Slave to the Rhythm.”
Her to-the-max personal style made her a muse to the most exciting artists and designer of the era. Think Andy Warhol, Basquiat and funky designer Thierry Mugler.
Her clothing astonishes, her haircuts are imitated and uncommon and she is different every time. A rare “chameleon” I say! What do you say?
Singer, model, and actress Grace Jones is certainly one of the most talented and scandalous figures of contemporary art for over thirty years now.
She played in such movies as Dangerously Yours (James Bond) and Conan the Destroyer.
Grace Jones is one of my top 5 style icons.
