Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - I Prefer Dresses!

I'm in Baltimore on a trip for work, and I decided that my down time should be spent catching up on some of the old movies I've been missing out on all these years. I just finished watching Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and I can't even describe how much I adored the film (and everything they wore in that movie).

Some of my favorites/things I wish I owned:

The collar and neckline on this suit are simply fabulous.

I love this dress. The silhouette, the sleeve length, and especially the accessories. The cuffs are perfect, and that belt is just perfect. And totally being replicated today. It's something that could easily be picked up.

This skirt is darling. I'm sure I've seen a pattern like it around somewhere. I may have to pick it up if I can find it again.

My very favorite outfit in the movie, however, was the purple suit Marilyn Monroe wears at the end. I love everything about it, from the quarter-sleeved bolero to the belt to the detail of the bodice.

I may have to watch another old movie just for the clothes before the night is out. Any recommendations?


  1. Ohhh, my favourite dresses in the world ever! Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is my favourite film of all time, I can't imagine the number of times I've watched since I was maybe 9 years old.

  2. I know! I'm so sad that I hadn't seen it until now! I'll probably watch it over and over again now.
