A Little Bit Bette

2011_02_15d

This outfit’s a bit more die-hard vintage than usual. Maybe I just think that because of the tilt of the hat? In any case, I attribute the 1940’s vibes I’ve been feeling to the influx of Bette Davis movies in my mailbox. Most usually, she is wearing a sort of neutral dress with strong shoulders, a tiny waist, and a length around mid calf. And let’s not forget the hats. The hats!
