The Painted VeilPosted: February 6, 2012
I just watched The Painted Veil again over the weekend – the remake with Naomi Watts and Edward Norton, though I am curious about the 1934 version with Greta Garbo too. Good movie, but most of all I just love the wardrobe of Kitty Fane (Naomi Watts’ character) – pretty cotton dresses in soft pastels (even if the hems are a little short by 1920’s standard), wingtips, and lovely hats. So this outfit is partially inspired by it.
The skirt is for the ABC’s of Style challenge, “P for Pleats.” I could say I picked the stripes to modernize the look, but the truth is that this striped shirt goes with everything and I was too lazy to find something more 1920’s 😛
