Swag it like Paul

Nobody quite like him. Nobody.
Paul Newman. I wish I'd see this image as a kid. It would have made a formative, lasting impression. I'd have tried to live up to his cool ballsy swag and self assurance, to vibe my Jew-ness cool and easy.

Always the tomboy, I admire both men and women as personal style guides. Tough, groovy, mysterious, sensuous, intrinsically intelligent...  In women - androgynous.  In men - a bit dangerous. Those types.

To have seen this icon of all things rugged and sexy, just standing there, in his greatness, rockin' the J-Star... MAN. I feel like a kid all over again. Still forming, still dreaming, still inventing and reinventing what I'll be when I grow up.

This season, and forever more, let's vow to be all that. In our delicate nuances, and unabashed bold strokes - to be that person who eternally swags it, like Paul.


  1. Marla,
    You could be a writer. I LOVE THIS. You have made my day sweet pea.


  2. Rent the film: Long Hot Summer.

  3. Will do! Thanks for the suggestion, anon! I am woefully behind on my cinema intake.
