Today's Inspiration

August 23, 2010
Suffice to say Sally Draper wasn’t the only tween getting hot and bothered while watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. 
Running from 1964-1968, the show starred David McCallum as Russian Illya Kuryakin, an international law-enforcement agent hot on the trail of justice. McCallum’s boyish good looks and luxurious, on-trend hair often got him called the ‘blonde Beatle’, and his face adorned bedroom walls all across America.
Bonus fun fact! U.N.C.L.E.’s good guys worked tirelessly to defeat an evil superentity known as THRUSH, but in the original plan for the series, the enemy organization’s name was to be WASP. If ever there was a child who needed a WASP fighter in her life, it’s our Sally, right?
