Photo Inspiration – Ann Sheridan

One of my favorite actresses is Ann Sheridan, a talented redhead with a husky voice and a fabulously elegant and earthy air. This Texas-born beauty, known as the “Oomph Girl” (a nickname given to her by Warner Brothers, and one she loathed) was more than just a pretty face—she was a standout actress with a knack for comedy. Here Ann shows us how to look good when the weather heats up—I don't know about you, but I’d certainly love to have a few of these outfits!

  8. Yeah, I always liked Ann Sheridan too, and isn't she a natural looking beauty? I miss stars who looked like normal (but pretty) people. Love the name of your blog by the way!
