Things are going so well for me lately! I’ve moved into a lovely new apartment with two of my best friends in the whole universe (Carly and Suzanne), and my financial situation seems to have finally turned around! Thus, I was able to get Netflix back, and let me tell you, it was missed.
So, on Thursday night, I stayed in and watched Sex and the Single Girl, a 1964 romantic comedy loosely based on the book, starring Natalie Wood and Tony Curtis. The movie itself was cute, but I wasn’t too concerned with the plot because I was staring at all the WONDERFUL COSTUMES AND SETS! I capped some of the costumes and sets for all you wonderful viewers to see the elegant yet youthful magic of Natalie Wood’s black and white wardrobe.
But first, I need to tell you about my new girl crush on Natalie Wood. My mom told me to watch Sex and the Single Girl, knowing my love of early 60’s fashion, but also because she loves Natalie Wood, and I think that she wanted me to understand that love. And now I do.
Isn’t she adorable? You have to see her in action to get the full picture, but I look forward to renting more of her movies.
So, here’s all you need to know about the gorgeous early 60’s fashion in Sex and the Single Girl:
So now, wasn’t that just fabulous? And the best part is that I believe I could replicate that look with items from Forever 21. Where, by the way, I shopped yesterday and bought some fantastic things. And I also bought some incredible lipstick at Sephora. Maybe I’ll do one of those haul videos, but I’m not really sure if I’m ready to make my foray into Youtube.
I have a lot of wedding festivities this weekend, and I look forward to taking a lot of pictures and posting them here!
PS: Now that I’ve learned how to take screencaps of movies, what do you think about changing the format of my blog to focus on fashion in movies? I mean, that’s sort of what I do anyhow. But it would just be more official. Yes? No? Maybe so? Think about it, I’ve got to go hop in the shower and get ready for my big day.
PPS: It’s not MY wedding I’m talking about, it’s my friends Grace and Jon’s.
