Hopeless Romantic

I was watching The Sound of Music and forgot how much I love the movie, not to mention the fashion from the 1930's and 1940's. I am such a hopeless romantic, I want to sing and dance in the rain, in a courtyard under moonlight, and at a ball wearing a ball gown. Even though I did not live during this time period, I miss the glamour and sophistication of this era. Men and women dressed for every occasion, where did this formality go and why does it not exist anymore? Watching movies like this tempt me to be an actress because I want to create magic, like the feelings that sweep over me when I watch The Sound of Music or basically any musical.

Here are just some pictures that I loved and wish that I could wear right now!

I die for a great, dramatic hat and ensemble!

Can't talk about the '30s without the great Coco Chanel, found at
Wish I could find a better picture, but the Baroness' clothes in The Sound of Music are to die for!

One day, I will have the chance to dress up and attend a ball and dance under the moonlight. At least a girl can dream right?
