Now that I have Netflix, I can feebly attempt to share screencaps of my favourite fashion moments from the movies I adore. Example: the 2001 movie, Gosford Park. This film is at the top of my fave list for several reasons: 1) I love the way it is both an homage to, and an ironisation of, the manor house murder mystery genre (in books and film); 2) I think it is spectacular in the way it provides a subtle but distinct portrayal (and critique) of the British class system in the early 1930s. 3). It is absolutely FILLED with dreamy 30s knitwear, suits, and coats. Of course, there are some stunning evening gowns as well, but I am more drawn to the richly colored daywear (I LOVE that the garments and the colors they have been made in are period perfect).
Cream ruffle collar knitted top, long cardi, tweed skirt, opaque stockings = YUM
Gorgeous oatmeal swagger sweater coat with beautiful buttoned tabs. Ruffled blouse with butterscotch brooch. Rust v-neck jumper layered over. Matching tweed skirt (not seen in this pic)
Unique color block sweater in moss green, grey, yellow. Worn over peter pan collared blouse and pearl necklace finishes the look.
Warm brown and butterscotch jumper. Beautiful pattern.
My favourite ensemble in the whole film: color block jumper in rich burgundy with a mauve-grey geometric patterning. Matching wool skirt. Lovely neckscarf (more on that in another post)

Suits and coats
