On this page you will find products I love because they each have their own "Classic Hollywood" story. Some are steeped in history, some are made of a bit of legend and fairydust. I promise you won't be disappointed! 

I hope you enjoy the stories that compelled me to select them.

Featured products are independently selected and linked to for practicality. If you buy something using a link on this page, She Wore Stars may receive a small share of that sale.

INTERIOR DESIGN OF CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD STARS

Add a little Classic Hollywood chic to your home -- using the interior design tips of the stars. This isn't about shower curtains with Marilyn's face printed on them, or pink feathery boas -- this is the real deal. The things they really loved in their own homes.

RECOMMENDED READING ON HOLLYWOOD LORE

Every night I read a little bit from 2-3 books, and something on Old Hollywood is always on my list. 

Several notes in the spirit of doing the right thing: the celebrities discussed above did not necessarily endorse any of the products listed here, but based upon my research I do believe they really loved these things, or wore these things, or read these things... you get the idea. That said, if you buy from any of the links included above rather than going straight to the vendor site from Google or another search engine, I get a portion of your purchase at no cost to you. Happy "silver screen" shopping. :)
