Our society has come a long way in the past few decades but many have completely forgotten what it's like to be cool, classy & sexy. From Paul Newman and Sofia Loren to the original texters and social daters, let's take a lesson from these masters of old scool cool.

The people we aspired to be decades ago are much different than the celebrities we look up to today. The values of our past have nearly vanished, but I'm hoping that if everyone sees this, they might be convinced to get back to our roots. Please share and remind everyone what "cool" used to be like!
