movie inspiration: what a way to go

on netflix, available to watch instantly. this movie kills me! pure eye candy. edith head at her best.. well she was always at her best i suppose. shirley maclaine is adorable throughout, as are her costars paul newman, robert mitchum, dean martin and dick van dyke. dozens and dozens of brilliant costumes, many on screen for only 3or 5 seconds. i caught as many as i could for you. here are just a few of my favs:

lounging at home in blue stripes & sheer crisp ruffles w matching ruffle bloomers. i am totally making myself an outfit like this.

full-skirted ballgown split to reveal tiny matching micro shorts

completely insane red rubber geisha ensemble

cutest tiny empire-waist nightey that swings around her like a bell

and in time to be some summer inspiration for you: this longsleeved white lace bikini and the best shades ever

and also this killer dramatic bikini.. so easy to diy

dudes i had never even heard of this movie before last week but you know i'll watch anything. now i've seen it 4x through and srsly all the costumes are covetable. i can't even tell you if the movie itself is any good, but who cares when there's all this to look at?
