Sensing a Pattern?

Not only do I love polka dots but I am a huge fan of other graphic printed vintage fabric (esp. white on black). More Myrna to illustrate: large checks. Of course the adorable chapeaus and neck bows only add to my adoration of these looks.

Is that first picture from "One Hour With You"?
I remember Myrna had a great line...
when asked if she could go for a doctor her reply was 'Sure, bring him right in'

Miss Go Lightly said...

Wow! She looks like a porcelain little doll in that first pic! Love that outfit!

Love the picture on your blog header.

Yes, she does look like a porcelain doll in the first picture.

Lovely.

Hi JordieGirl: thanks! I'm really in love with the blog header, too. It might just stick around for a longer time....

Oh, Reilly, Lululetty, Frollein, I agree: that first outfit (in which she DOES look like a doll) is so totally to die for. Reilly, if you make something similar, you MUST post pics so we can have a look-see. I'll bet you'd look just as doll-like ;)

Miss Rayne: the movie is Love Me Tonight.

I get many of my pics from Dr. Macro!

Miss Golightly: you were on the mark when calling her "porcelain"-esque. One of the many things I love about Myrna Loy in the 30s is that flawless face!
