AFTER WATCHING "SOME LIKE IT HOT" , I COULDN'T HELP BUT THINK OF A DRESS I THRIFTED BACK IN THE SUMMER. A gentleman at the check-out said it reminded him of a 1920's style dress. So, what is there to do during a Blizzard ? Play dress - up !
This funny movie was made in 1959, but was based on the a couple of fellows who had to become women in 1929 ! You probably know the rest of the story, so I won't re-tell it, but instead of falling in love with Sugar's outfits (Marilyn Monroe) I fell for Josephine and Daphne's outfits! (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon). I gotta tell ya, Tony Curtis is a darn beautiful lady ! And what can you say about Jack Lemmon !
Being filmed on Catalina Island , two cross-dressing musicians and a whole lot of authentic clothing made my heart go pitter-patter!
SOME LIKE IT HOT !
TWO STYLISH LADIES.......
ONE HOT LADY !
WHO PLAYS THE UKULELE.
AND THE REST IS HISTORY !
I WAS AN EXTRA !
BOY DID WE LOVE TO DANCE !
AH, THE MEMORIES !
AND A TECHNICOLOR REMAKE.....
STILL DREAMS DO COME TRUE...
AND THE LADY GETS HER LADY IN THE END!
Playing dress-up is fun ! Most of this outfit was thrifted,
including my pearl drop earrings.
After "the movie" I threw on a warm, ruffled cardi and
my favorite boots ! I kept the hat and faux fur collar, which I
pinned with a bow-shaped vintage pin.( The fur is small, so I
just pinned it around my neck.)
My dress style is more like an early 30's house dress.
It originally came from Dress Barn.
