R.I.P. Jane Russell

I was saddened to learn of the passing of an old Hollywood sex-symbol from the 40's & 50's  today, Ms. Jane Russell. I absolutely loved her in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" , opposite Marilyn Monroe. She was classy, sexy, elegant, smart, sassy and oh so funny in that film, which is one of my all-time favorites. She had a figure to die for and she had style. As she got older, she became the spokeswoman for Playtex bras for "full-figured gals". I still remember those commercials from my childhood.  She was one of several women that I love to emulate their look. She was most definitely a pin-up and just oozed sex-appeal. In fact, there was much controversy surrounding her busom in her first film, "The Outlaw". Howard Hughes even specially designed and built a bra for her to please the censors. It was the first ever underwire bra of its kind. Hughes help up the film by defying the censorship codes at the time. By showcasing Jane's breasts in the film and on the movie poster, the movie became quite controversial. Hughes felt that the camera didn't do justice to her ample bosom , so that is why he built her the special bra. (which she claims she never wore)

Jane Russell died of respiratory-related illness at her home at age 89. She definitely lived a very full life and indeed will be missed by many including this "full-figured gal".

Jane and her "controversial" breasts....

would you date a guy 4'11 and 95 lbs?

It would depend on the person themselves, on their personality, their interests and who they were as a person and a few other factors. Height and weight aren't an issue to me, WHO the guy is and HOW he treats others is!

What language would you like to learn how to speak?

I would love to learn to speak Italian, as it is my heritage. I love learning new languages. I know a bit of Spanish,German and Latin and I took many years of French study as well as visiting France, so I am a little bit better with French. On a whim, I once decided to learn Russian and bought some books and started to learn it and write that was difficult!!

What's the last good book you read?

I am not finished with it yet, but Stephanie Meyer's,"Breaking Dawn", the last of the Twilight series. I read about 400 or so pages but it just got boring to me, so I put it on hold. The whole series was terrific though and I could not put down!!

Latest Photo Update-Sensuous Pearls

My latest photo set, "Sensuous Pearls" is now up on my website. It is really a hot set, so now is a perfect  time to sign up for a membership. This set was done in black & white and it gave an elegant vintage feel to it.  I hope you enjoy it. xo

There is nothing like a nice set of pearls to set off a  outfit, except diamonds that is.
Anyway, I decided b/w was the way to go for a vintage vixen look and my many strands of pearls 
complemented my satin and lace lingerie perfectly. The satin clung to all my curves and rolls, but 
felt so good against my soft skin.I really felt sensual as I removed my lingerie and was left 
wearing nothing but my pearls and as you can tell by one of the photos, I got a little creative 
with my pearls!

What was the worst concert you went to?

I went to see Def Leppard,Styx and Foreigner and it wasn't the bands that made it bad it was the weather. We had a micro-burst and it was an outdoor concert and we got pelted with hail and the wind kicked up and they had to cancel the concert. People were screaming and hiding under their seats...I was scared for my life too!!

Ask me anything

Do you believe in luck?

Yes & No. In a way, I feel you make your own luck but yeah I have had days where I did everything right and nothing went right!! I have also had days where i was having a bad day and all good things started happening.

Have you broken any bones? If so, how?
