The Gone With the Wind-ish dress was the highest voted piece and I couldn’t wait to get started on it!
Peach just isn’t my color. It totally washes me out, so the first thing that I was excited to do was change the shade!
There are some other issues we’ll have to handle as well…
…but color changing was first up on the agenda. Making the lace work was a close second
What color would you have picked?? I went with…
It’s holiday party weekend and I need to think wardrobe and want you guys to help!! Here are the options:
#1 – Blue beaded vintage dress with a very LARGE slit up the back of the dress. Um, can this be saved???
#2 – Blue satin lace dress that doesn’t stay up and has some severe underarm discoloration. YUCK!
#3 – Peach “Gone With the Wind”-esque feeling dress. The color is dreadful against my skin and I feel like a debutante Oh, and PS, my entire chestal region is on display.
#4 – 80s satin dress that has a mullet waist. That material is drapey and hits right at my thighs in the front, but in the back it goes longer than my knees. Party in the front and in the back for this one!
Which one do you like best??? Leave your thoughts below…
When I saw this dress, at first look I thought it could have been a blanket.
It was sitting in a pile of clothes and all I saw was the shiny yellow quilted skirt, yet still it had to be mine.
I thought it just needed some simple length adjustment…
…but then I found something else!!
My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 26 is here and it’s a modern noir film of the 50s.
Today’s costume comes from:
I love this era.
I love this part of LA too! Crossroads of the World has been around since 1936 and was the world’s first outdoor mall (thanks Wikipedia!!). It’s still used for shops but there’s lots of offices situated there as well.
I love that old LA is the backdrop to this film and I love all the vintage clothes that make up the wardrobe.
Kim Basinger is a dream!
To complete the 50s Lynn Bracken costume from LA Confidential, here are the main elements you’ll need::
2. Red lipstick (Mac makes my fave)
3. Blonde locks (my wig is c/o Party City)
