Last night I went to see the stage production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang currently playing at the Festival Theatre. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one of my favourite films and the show certainly didn't disappoint. Being able to see musicals on the stage is such an amazing experience and I'm lucky that, though we don't get very many big productions, I get to see any at all.
I tweeted, last week, about being sad that the dress I'd bought for a special occasion (being the show) probably wasn't going to arrive in time after all because of some shipping delays. Well, it arrived yesterday with absolute perfect timing! It reminds me a bit of the red dress Anna Friel wore in the Pushing Daisies promo photos but without the lace. Anyone else make that connection? Or did I just have Pushing Daisies on the brain when I ordered it?
And it's from ASOS of all places! I wish I'd got it in other colours before it sold out. It's such a perfect late '50s/early '60s style, I want one in every colour. Or at least one in black (which they didn't have, anyway).
I don't know why, but I like photos from this angle. I also like that you can see the little holes under my lip where my piercings used to be (I can, anyway - maybe because I know they're there?)
A pretty vintage brooch - I don't remember where I got it from. I think it was from a fair. Very vague.
My beautiful friend, Abi, in her gorgeous '70s frock that goes so well with her hair. These photos were taken in the Adelaide Arcade where Abi has her workshop, Seams Nostalgic.
And here we are together!
The musical is filled with great songs, so I'm hard pressed to choose a favourite. I don't think there is one song that I don't like! Chu-Chi Face may just win out for me. And Hushabye Mountain is undeniably one of the best lullabies ever. But, well, Doll on a Music Box is so lovely, too! Rachael Beck performed this beautifully, I thought.
Any other Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fans? What's your favourite song?
