Pretty In Pink Style: Iona versus Andie

Whose style do you prefer in the movie Pretty in Pink? Andie or Iona?

Pretty in pink 1

Hands down I prefer Iona’s punky vintage look.

The Siouxsie Sioux-esque cheongsam ensemble...

Iona 1

Film noir-esque Forties ensemble with the red snood...


Pink formal with beehive hairdo...

Iona 4

Siouxsie Sioux-esque rubber dress and mohawk...

Iona 6

I love all of her outfits except when she goes square and changes her look when she dates the veterinarian...

Iona 5

The only Andie outfit I recall liking was the pink kimono and pajamas she wears while in her bedroom planning her prom dress...

Molly 2

Whose style do you prefer?

The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries & Marvelous Millinery


Chris and I have been thoroughly enjoying The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries dvd series that we picked up at the library. The series is about the witty Mrs. Bradley who is into Freud and criminology, and her ever helpful chauffeur George Moody, who together go about solving crimes. Mrs. Bradley is played by Diana Rigg who is delightful at delivering one liners. If you enjoyed the witty banter of The Avengers and the ambience and mystery of The Hercule Poirot series, then The Mrs. Bradley Series is your cup of tea! This series is based on Gladys Mitchell crime novels.

The visual highlight of the show is the millinery. I want each and every hat that I've seen in the series. The hats featured on the show have a flapper / Art Deco inspiration to them.

Throughout the week I will be sharing some original fabulous flapper and amazing Art Deco vintage hats that I have found for sale from across the web. Scroll down for today's serving of marvelous millinery.
