I had planned to keep my main blog and my Etsy shop blog separate, so as not to barrage non-shopping bloggers with my shop wares, but I couldn't resist posting the Gatsby dress selection and now this post here as well. Yes, I'm a temptress. Feel free to look away ;)
I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking the costumes in the 2008 movie Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day are just absolutely dreamy. Well, it has come to my mind that at least three frocks in my Etsy shop are Pettigrew Perfect. Specifically, the late 30s midnight blue velvet dress shown below is a ringer for the one Miss Guinevere P. wears in the climactic lounge scene of the film; the middle blue chiffon evening gown and jacket set would be divine on Pettigrew's charge, Delicia LaFosse (though I believe it is mid-30s, whereas the film is late 30s, the color and style would look heavenly on her); the third exquisite black with white soutache trim frock would look dazzling on Miss P., though I think the chic shop owner who gives Miss P. her high fashion makeover would keep it for herself. All these Pettigrew Pretties are for sale in my Etsy shop. Happy Saturday!
