Fashion, Glamour Girls and Home Decor Favorites

Some of my favorite stars, fashion and home decor pictures from the month of April Facebook posts, starting with two very famous Hollywood icons.

Mary Jane West (August 17, 1893 – November 22, 1980), known as Mae West, an American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned seven decades, who knew she did all that and her famous line. 

"Why don't you come up and see me sometime"

She was known for her bawdy double entendres (type of speak when a phrase is understood to mean two things). West originally made a name for herself in vaudeville and on the stage in New York before moving to Hollywood to become a comedienne, actress and writer in the motion picture industry.

And, Shirley Temple (April 23, 1928 - ) She began her career in 1932 at the age of three and in February 1935, became the first child star to be honored with a miniature Juvenile Oscar for her 1934 film Bight Eyes  and added her foot and hand prints to the forecourt at Grauman's Chinese Theatre a month later. Shirley retired from films at the age of 22 in 1950, but returned to acting in television in 1958. In her later years she was very active in politics and is currently living in WoodlandCalifornia

These two couldn't be more opposite, but both received the most interaction on my Facebook fan page, and there several other Hollywood beauties for that month that were in contention.

Next up for favorites were dresses from the 1950s. All month were shown fashions from the Victorian, 1920s and through to the 2013 runway shows. But, most favorites for interaction were these dresses from the 50s.

This dress looks to be navy blue with white chiffon collar and trim on the sleeves. There was no identifying information for this dress it was shared on Facebook via Lazy Eye Retro.

Everything is pink, especially the beautiful pink dress. And yes she is grabbing a roll of toilet paper which makes me believe this is an ad from a magazine, shared on Facebook from Melancholie Soul Beauty Retro.

These three lovely vintage dresses appear to be from a catalog.

But that is not all, these three mid-century home decor post also received some of the most interactions. 

Love the shape and color of this mid-century sofa shared from A Little Slice of Vintage Life

This lovely pink kitchenette was shared from juNxtaposition. Hmmm, aqua kitchen cabinets, seems there is a theme going on here.

The one photo that is not vintage but timeless just the same. Oh how I would love to curl up in this beautiful and cozy window seat! See more of this home designed by Jenn Feldman from 

So there you have them, eight of my most popular post on Facebook in April. These are only a few of the many post I put up daily showing vintage and runway fashions, home decor and glamour girls, stop by and give a like to see what happens daily at Oso Victoria Vintage.

I think these dresses are just so pretty, and they come in several colors. These style were also well 'liked' on Facebook, thought they would be perfect for prom or that special party.
