Renee Perle: Boudoir Doll and Vintage Beauty

The Retro Modern Housewife's post today about The Boudoir Queen Boutique has reminded me that I have not yet introduced you to the newest addition to our little family: meet Renee Perle, my late 20s/early 30s Boudoir Doll (actually she's a half doll. Naughty, saucy flapper, she doesn't like wearing clothes).


The real Renee Perle is another of my vintage fashion icons. I covet her perfectly waved and spit curled hair. As well, returning to the earlier subject of trousers, Perle's palazzo pants (or beach pajamas) are so impressively wide (note to self: must adopt a similar Riviera look next summer)! She just embodies everything I love about late 20s/early 30s fashion!

Wow, she's stunning. I love her wide leg pants and exaggerated collars, as well as her hair! So glamorous...I see stars in my eyes:)

I need more wide pants in my life. Too bad I'd probably have to find someone to make them for me :/
