As the subject of this post probably suggests, I went to the cinema on two different occasions last week. The first time was to see Rebel Without a Cause at the Mercury Cinema (part of the same season during which I saw Johnny Guitar when I wore this dress) and I opted to try to channel Natalie Wood's wardrobe from that film...which I suppose ended up not looking very different to a lot of what I usually wear, anyway!
I wore the skirt from the stutterinmama order I posted about at the beginning of the month, as it reminded me of the green skirt Natalie Wood wears near the beginning of the film, though hers was a darker more olive green and she had a really cute matching cardigan, too.
Outfit details: 1950s cardigan - etsy; scarf - ?; black top - Target; 1950s pencil skirt - etsy; vintage stockings - ?; shoes - KMart.
I wore the second outfit to (finally) see Midnight in Paris (which I loved and had ambitions to write about after I'd watched it...but still haven't written anything) on a rather warm day. I basically planned this outfit around a new pair of shoes I'd bought the day before...
The belt is from another dress but the tan colour of my shoes matched the belt quite well and I thought it was a nice way to tie the outfit together.
You can see one of the newest additions to my slowly growing collection of ceramic kitties just to the left of my face in this photo - maybe one day I'll do a post on my collection if anyone is interested?
Outfit details: white bow - bought a set of these somewhere ages ago; heart necklace - belonged to my nonna; 1940s dress - etsy; sweetheart pin - etsy; bangles - various; shoes - KMart.
Here's a not particularly good shot of the shoes - they're from K-Mart and I think they have a very 1940s feel to them.
