I haven't done one of my style icon posts for a while - I think the last one was on my mum - but hopefully this will be the first of many more to come.
Now, everyone loves Lucy (at least, I like to think that they do) and why shouldn't they? But I happen to think Lucy's best gal pal, Ethel Mertz, is just as cute and stylish as Lucy herself. So, this is my little tribute to one of the best best friends in history: Ethel!
I've always not-so-secretly loved Ethel's hair.
I also love her facial expressions.
And she has some very cute dresses that I wish were in my own wardrobe.
Here's a video of Lucy & Ethel being incredibly cute, that I just adore (and check out Ethel's snazzy ensemble, too).
What other friend would be willing to be the back end of a horse for her pal?
I grew up watching I Love Lucy. I still haven't seen every episode (would you believe it's not available on DVD in Australia?) but I have a few VHS tapes full of episodes my sister taped from TV that I've practically worn out. The show is a big part of my personal history and it never fails to make me laugh, even when I know what's coming! Ethel is a very important ingredient of the show, just as each character is. I love the friendship between Lucy and Ethel - they fight but always make up, they get up to mischief, they sing, they dance and, gosh, who could want for a better friendship?
Hopefully, this becomes a regular feature again (along with Silver Screen Sunday) because I like to share more than just my own outfits with you all. I think sharing my other interests, even if they're still vintage themed, helps to get to know more about me and getting to know little things about other people is one of the things I love about the blogs I read.
