Last sunday i managed to convince the family to watch 'How to marry a millionaire' with me. I love the film and thought my children were ready to be introduced to it's delights. I am sorry to say, i ended up being the only person left in the room within about the first five minutes!. It didn't ruin it for me though and the peace meant, not only did i get the chance to enjoy the film i could really look and appreciate just how fabulous the clothes are.At one point all three of the main cast -( Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall) are in a shop fashion show and all look fabulous. If i had to choose whose wardrobe i would have i think it would be Marilyns..I dream of having clothes like that! or a figure like Betty Grable!
The hair styles make my heart skip a beat too.
This is how we should all spend a saturday afternoon.!
I am sorry to say i actually don't like the wedding dress and feel Lauren Bacall is up staged by Marilyn.
sometimes it doesn't matter how many vintage dresses you find in charity shops, Etsy or eBay etc you can not find anything quite as good/authentic or that fits right.
I really hope to help and encourage people to make their own. By making your own clothes you can make sure the fit is pefect, the colour suits and the style shouts 'me' to whoever you are and what ever your shape and style.
i will be attempting to make a real dress that looks as good as any of the outfits worn in this film!
i need a miracle! ha
See the film it's fab and pick your favourite outfit!
