Fashionista Friday

I watch old movies... the blacker and whiter, the better... and my TV is usually tuned to Turner Classic Movies (TCM). Wednesday evening, TCM showed and I watched True Confession, a wacky 1937 comedy featuring Fred MacMurray and Carole Lombard.

The film was fun and the humor held up despite being 79 years old. I particularly liked the acting of Carole Lombard. I had never sat through one of her films before and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.

I also loved the outfits her female co-stars wore throughout the film. They were so classy and feminine that I wanted to ride the wayback machine back to 1937 in order to hit the racks at Macy's and Gimbels. (I am positive that I dressed like those women in a previous life.)

  1. Oh the fashions back then were I hate to use this cliche but "Fabulous"

    As My wife says back when Dames were Dames!

    When I was in the UK recently I attended a retro fair, so many women in styles from the 40-50's OMG. I was enamored.

  2. One of my favorites is The Thin Man. I loved everything Myrna Loy wore in that film. That slinky nightgown (seemed to be gold color) she wore was to die for.
