Dear Vogue Spain, please exit my brain.

In an editorial featured earlier this month, Vogue.es drew inspiration from 40’s film noir — namely the Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd classic The Blue Dahlia — to put together a series of looks in the spirit of Ms. Lake, Marlene Dietrich and Gene Tierney.  You can probably guess whose look immediately caught my eye.  Also doesn’t hurt that Ms. Dietrich happens to be my birthday twin.  Imagine that.  In any event, these gorgeous photos have inspired an earnest need — like you wouldn’t believe — for a stole.  Perhaps this winter shall be known henceforth as the winter of the stole…  Thoughts?
