1940s blue suit.


I was so excited to find this suit last year at Magpie, not only because it's gorgeous, but also it is very similar to Amy Adams late 30s dress in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. It's the first time I've had a chance to wear it, since it's more of a spring suit, but I just love the color and drape of the wool. If only I had a matching hat, but I think the black one I have is quite similar, dont you? If you haven't seen the movie yet, I recommend it, the costumes are fabulous, and I just adore Amy Adams. I think I'm stalking her film wardrobes, since I also did a photoshoot last summer in the spirit of Enchanted.

Haha. It's getting a makeover, but I'm having photo difficulties. For some reason it will load either too small, or too big. But thanks :)

You look gorgeous! I love old suits; I had one for awhile, and it was just so much fun to wear--the fit and details were impeccable. :)

Stunning! And particularly lovely on you. It looks so much like the Amy Adams suit, I'm amazed.
