WORD | Katharine Hepburn: Rebel Chic


It's easy to love the new book Katharine Hepburn: Rebel Chic ($40), which hits shelves October 2nd. The book is brimming with rare and never-published photos as well as costume sketches and fantastic writing. With an entire chapter dedicated to Hepburn's tomboy style by Nancy MacDonell, it's also a must-own for any tomboyphile. MacDonell reminds us not only of Hepburn's lasting legacy in fashion but also that wearing trousers in the 1930s wasn't something that any "nice girls" did. She writes, "But in 1932, when Hepburn was striding around in dungarees...the vast majority of women were wearing dresses, girdles, garter belts, and stockings; nice girls simply didn't wear slacks." Pre-order here!

When ergo baby carrier parents are shopping ergobaby for this kind of carrier they need to do a little research in ergobaby canada order to decide just what features they want in the carrier they choose for their child. It's important for the carrier to be comfortable for the parent to wear and for the baby to feel snug.
