Cinema Connection--Winter Fashion 1940s Style a la DOUBLE INDEMNITY

As I have been showing throughout the month, the 1940s have inspired an awful lot of fashion this Fall and Winter.  From the fashion runways to the Golden Globes, the gowns, tea dresses, fitted suits, furs, and accessories from the decade of film noir are all the rage this season.  You can see a few more of the looks here.  Double Indemnity (1944) was one source of inspiration, a movie whose style has always been a favorite of designers and found on their mood boards year after year.  In fact, the decade as a whole seems to be moving beyond a trend...designers have learned the timeless nature of 1940s style and many have incorporated it into their collections for Spring 2012 as well.  Stay tuned!

Oh my, a hat with a veil-sigh. Back in the day, when department stores sold real ladies hats, I loved to try them on and pretend I was a stylish woman with stylish places to go. Surely I was born in the wrong era. Katherine Louise

Isn't it gorgeous? Makes me think of SHANGHAI EXPRESS and all of its fabulous veils. I love them, too, and think we were BOTH born in the wrong era, Katherine Louise.

To dressing well,
