Buha|i|rest, Budapest, Hungary

Darlings, for today’s scheduled escape from reality, let’s all meet up in a cool, calming, slightly weird bar to get our virtual drank on today.

How Romanov Emeralds Ended Up With American Princess Barbara Hutton

Her jewels, however, had gotten out even before she did. In an operation worthy of a thriller, a British officer snuck into the Vladimir Palace dressed as a worker (though one version states it was as an old woman) and stashed all the hidden jewels in his bags (in the old-woman version, some were sewn into a bonnet).
