period films & fashion


Three things I love: Miss Moss blog, period films, fashion. Roll them all together and you have the genius that is Diana of Miss Moss. With a stoke of brilliance she composed these juxtapositions of period films vs. street style in the most entertaining way. She's even got one of my top 3 favorite films in there, Out of Africa, with Meryl Streep, "I once had a farm in Africa...". I could look at hundreds of these, Diana, could you make 100 more of them please? See the original posts here and here.

Omg, I LOVE Out of Africa! But I think I pretty much love just about any movie with Meryl Streep in it tho! This is so clever! Checking out the blog now....

Yeah Miss Moss is pretty amazing. Her blog is so inspirational. I love love love her color comparison posts. I love period films and try to dress like I'm in a period film, but Miss Moss finds the perfect screen shot from the film and then the street style photo. I mean that's a lot of effort and research.

So I saw that the perfect 1940s wedding dress is on hold. Sad face. I was hoping maybe I could buy it... maybe in a year. Ahhhh. Maybe the 1950s lace dress will still be available. If not, I'm sure you'll restock on some amazing vintage wedding dresses. I hope to buy something from your etsy sometime, but everything is just amazing! :)

The hats. Love the hats. Boy, women used to knwo how to wear hats. We have a huge hat collection that we are in the process of listing. Wish women dressed like they used to and wore hats. You have to watch films to get the flavor where you used to just have to look around you. My mom, grandmother, great aunts, aunts--all wore hats.

This is amazing!
I love it. Good style never goes out of fashion, they say! Long live blazers and peter pan collars and high waists and ruffles!
