The Miriam Hopkins Blogathon Was Quite the Success/Introducing Font and Frock

Day One

Day Two

Day Three

Day Four

As many of you know, the blogathon coincided with the official launch of my new blog, Font and Frock. Our review of Miriam’s film Design for Living is a great introduction to the blog’s eccentric concept. Each film we review will be done in the same, four-part manner. One classic film=four segments, covering film, fashion, flash fiction, and feminism. Check out the links below to see it in action.

Design for Living: Intro

Design for Living:  Part One-There’s Just Something About Miriam

Design for Living: Part Two-Gilda’s Tips for Dressing Like a Successful Commercial Artist

Design for Living: Part Three-“To Let: One Cheap, Roomy, Salubrious Flat”

Design for Living: Part Four-Not Your Average Rom Com Heroine

Thank you!
