Happy 5th Birthday, GlamAmor!


This week I celebrate the birthday of GlamAmor and, incredibly, it's just turned five!  Though the company started late in 2009, the website went live February 8, 2010, and that is the milestone I mark each year.  I'm proud to say that everything I do remains centered on classic cinema and the HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM, and GlamAmor continues to grow and grow. I have met many of you through the various projects I do, and here are some examples from the past year:

-----

I deeply appreciate everyone who continues to support my work and are as passionate about classic film and its influence as I am.  As always, it's just me trying to do it all--from the creative to the technological--and I do my best to remain connected to you.  This is why the GlamAmor network reaches so wide with this website (1.5 million+ visitors), social media (10 channels including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Google+), and a monthly e-newsletter.  I love to see you join in the conversation.

Thanks to you all and I can't wait to see what 2015 will bring!

Congratulations Kimberly! Happy 5th Anniversary. Keep up the great work, although that's a heavy pace. It's hard to keep up with you - but always interesting!

Thanks so much, my friend! It's funny because I always say it's hard to keep up with you and a few others we know. lol I suppose everyone feels that way a bit. I know the pace will be very different this year because I won't be teaching, though it's always interesting to see what opportunities present themselves among all the planned projects. Can't wait to see you at the TCM film festival, Christian! xo
