Vintage Valentine’s Day Fashion + Life Crush: Joanne Woodward & Paul Newman

EOF- Paul newman and joanne woodward - a couple who toke together stay together too - vintage valentines day fashion idol crushes

Of all the Hollywood stars who hitched a ride with each other  in the highway of life, our most beloved, and favourite of them all has to be the All-American dream team of Joanne Woodward & Paul Newman.

Never a dull moment with the two. Despite their classic appearance, the duo definitely display some spunk in their relationship. When you go through pictures of the two, they are always laughing, or hugging, kissing, playing games – this is the kind of couple everyone wishes they were in their life.

EOF- Paul Newman + Joanne Woodward in the Kitchen- Vintage Fashion - Valentine- Crush

And you know, they never ever did divorce (unlike so many other Hollywood heat-of-the-moment marriages). Instead, they were loyally by each other’s side all the way to the Newman’s death in 2008. The two would even open a hospital for children in their lifetime together, as well as starring in 10 films together (and 5 more that Newman directed but did not appear in). Yes indeed, there were quite the power couple.

In fact, before marrying each other, Newman was already a married man, and Woodward was dating the Dapper Dan of the Decade, Gore Vidal (the iconic writer and style aficionado). Vidal later claimed the entire relationship was a ruse to distract and entice Paul Newman to Woodward. I guess it worked, because it wasn’t long before Newman was filing for divorce and making the final arrangements to work it out with the talented Ms. Woodward.

The two both won Oscars: Newman in 1986 for “The Color of Money“, and Woodward in 1958 for “The Three Faces of Eve” (sort of a 1950s version of “The United States of Tara” – a great performance).

Yes indeed, it’s like they had everything. On top of it all, they always seemed to display such class and dignity. Both their style is never over-the-top, and especially Newman is always going for simple classics in his wardrobe.

E.O.F. Snapshot of the Day {January 7, 2013}

hunter s thompson 1960s
Hunter S. Thompson {circa 1960s} at his typewriter with pipe and wicked graphic surf shorts!

Greetings friends, fans, and followers . . .

The holiday season has come and gone, and we are back to the writing desk, much like our good friend Hunter S. Thompson up there. We thought this was a great image to welcome ourselves back on, as it reminds us all that style is something we take everywhere we go; It is a reflection, a representation, of one’s own unique persona.

Even putting himself up to the grind and working away, a man like Hunter S. Thompson (and like so many other great writers) only needs to rely on his supernatural sensibility of self to carry him through the long hours of the day. While I’m sure he never envisioned himself as a style guru of any sort, this man is looked at time and time again for his bad ass All-American jamboree of pattern and real casual cool.

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proff to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.

-Hunter S. Thompson

All it takes is letting go a little . . .

We hope to help you with these, and other dilemmas and mysteries of style and self in the coming New Year! Just keep it cool, OK?!

This year we hope to divulge in more rebel realities, playboy prophecies, magic America, gothic nuances, and many more vintage memories and musings informing and quickly building tomorrow’s fashion landscape . . .

With the help of {theEye} there’s no going wrong (and no going back, for that matter)!

See you shortly. . .

Most Sincerely,

{theEye}

Commercial Break: “Match Your Mood”- Amazing 1960s Short Film for Westinghouse

They’ve come a long way, but there’s definitely something to be said for the jiv and the jive the Ad Men gave this amazing 1960s short film for Westinghouse. Allowing you to “Match Your Mood”, these DIY decals would allow you to really jazz up your refrigerator to work with your groovy decor. Seems like the Agency maybe thought this could be the answer to many housewives’ boredom. Beats shock therapy…

Beginning with a walk in the park, the film ends in an all-out party showing us how cool life can be, especially if you go for the stars and stripes!

Sounds a little desperate for attention, because it is….so give it a watch, you won’t regret it!

Hot Housewife Hook-up!

Housewives are known for getting Botox or maybe more Botox.  Women who have short fuses who often fight until exhaustion.  Maybe order givers, and bottom-line demanders… The point remains, women have always been known for accomplishing many feats!  It feels like a breeze of fresh air to find Betty Draper-esque women partaking in ‘chores’ of the forgotten everyday. 



From artist Kelly Reemtsen, an amazing series of beautiful women.  We are intrigued by these illustrations.  From glamour – homicide, we love the tone of this series.  Dangerous, sexy, satire.   We enjoy!

Whud’ya think about that?

Right On, Cool Vintage Plate Reuse (Whaatt?! Whatever…)

Right On, Cool Vintage Plate Reuse on display through Etsy from Austin Modern.

Taking grandma’s plates takes a certain ‘no guts no glory’ type of edge…so wrong it, we’d rather leave it up to the pros. Check out the handsome quality – all done on unique antique plates. I think the pictures speak for themselves…good to see creative juxtaposition of the past and present.

Reinventing the past is a bold statement, and artists like Shary Boyle and Chris Antemann truly embrace some of the boldness and inventiveness artists have been taking in reinventing the crafts of yesteryear.  These wonderful works use historical techniques to create remarkable reinventions that are setting bold new directions for the craft.

The past holds many treasures, and often times they just keep on giving! Check out Austin Modern for a hand crafted piece of time that never siezes to stop!
