In praise of Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford

I read Joan Crawford’s book My Way of Life years ago. Part memoir, part self-help book, part guide to being fabulous, My Way of Life advises the reader on everything from throwing a small dinner party to getting the most out of a marriage. It is a fascinating relic from another time. We love Joan Crawford hear at the Vampire’s Wife! What a presence.

Much love, Susie

Joan's top 5 style rules:

  1. Find your own style and have the courage to stick to it.
  2. Choose your clothes for your way of life.
  3. Make your wardrobe as versatile as an actress. It should be able to play many roles.
  4. Find your happiest colours - the ones that make you feel.
  5. Care for your clothes, like the good friends they are.
