I really have spent my last couple of weeks engrossed and obsessively researching one of my favourite screen idols. I pride myself on already being a bit of Jean Harlow fanatic but it was little snippets of information that I'd forgotten or newly discovered that made this whole project an absolute joy!
Before anyone asks I will be listing in my shop over the weekend (will tweet and facebook to announce) I had intended to list today but there are still a few finishing touches to make. Listing is incredibly time consuming and I still have a few sequins to sew and a few ribbons to add before they are available for sale. As I said in my previous post there will be no reserves made on this collection so everyone who is interested has a fair chance.
I hope you enjoy one of my favourite posts to date.......Jean Harlow we salute you!
