Feel like dancing down the street...

Okay, I promise I will not continue to add various sections to my blog. I have one more section to include and then I will return to the beginning of the cycle with some comparison/contrast next week. This week I thought I'd spotlight a sexy outfit featured in one of my favorite musicals of all time. I hope I don't ostracize any male readers I have, but I promise the fashion talk will be pretty brief.

The movie is Singin' in the Rain (1952). If you've seen the movie, you probably know which dress I'm talking about:

The dress sparkles, "drips with fringe," and oozes sexiness. Everything in the costume is green, from her jewelry and her dress to her stockings and shoes. It's a dream Halloween costume and I have yet to find a woman who sees the dress and doesn't want it. Perhaps we all hope that if we have the dress, we'll be able to pull off the cool, vixen attitude that Cyd Charisse adopts so effortlessly.


  1. Dude, I did the open-mouthed "oh m-gaw" when I saw that dress. I wants. WANTS.

  2. The dress is fabulous - I can't really imagine a situation in which I could wear it (other than a Broadway 1920s dream sequence) but it is completely fabulous. The stockings, on the other hand, I could work into my daily wardrobe. Those I must have.
