My name is Catherine aka Comrade Von Pussycat, this blog is a cheeky homage to all of the Bond girls I grew up watching on screen and aspiring to be like. I am a California girl who fell in love, and married a Macedonian boy. We have a cat named Samson who we rescued from the snowy winter streets and who now repays me by humping my leg incessantly...such a creep! Oh, and I also happen to love the 1940's and 1950's, so stay tuned if you love vintage too!

You're in the Army now!
My wartime romance! I doubt that this was an actual uniform, but I found this WWII era dress for a real steal, and although it had some flaws, I couldn't resist taking such a jewel home. Just look at those 1940's padded shoulders! The ruching! The swing skirt! Les adorables, if I do say so myself.
And now, for your enjoyment, a few wartime photographs to remind us all what those times were all about! Patriotism! Struggle! Courage! Romance! Love!
