When I was a little girl I would hold a pencil between my fingers pretending it was a cigarette. There is something so refined with the image of smoking... That is not to say that I would ever promote smoking. No, smoking is hopefully soon a thing of the past everywhere. Still, these images of yesteryear make me long to hold a long cigarette in one hand and a cocktail glass in the other.
Nobody, nobody smokes like Marlene Dietrich!

This feels straight out of Mad Men. And the tag line says it all, no? ;)
