Lush Budget(t)!   Leave a comment

Ho hum, just another night in Second Life ….

A bit of diversion, for those who wonder where I get my taste for huge ballgown fashion, such as practiced by Sascha Frangilli (as above). Attend, therefore, to this film clip, from Shirley MacLaine’s What a Way to Go!:

(Laughing)

The movie, if you’ve never seen it, is about a woman who turns down the local wealthy boy in her town to marry a dirt farmer and part-time storekeeper. He starts spending all his time at the store, and builds it into a department-store empire, leaving her alone at home; but then he keels over at the office, leaving Louisa May (Shirley) a wealthy widow. She then falls in love with a down-at-the-heels ex-pat artist in Paris. He hits it big, spends all his time in his studio, and gets killed by the painting machines he builds, leaving Louisa with another five or ten million.

Louisa can’t help it; she falls in love again — but this time, with a man who’s a multi-millionaire in his own right (played by Robert Mitchum). She figures she’s safe with him; she can’t jinx him, because he’s already richer than she is. “Our life was like one of those glamorous Hollywood films, where it’s all about love and ‘what will she wear next?’” she says. Cue the above dream sequence (grin).

All Shirley’s costumes were done by Edith Head, and she really let herself loose on this one film … and got one of her many Oscar nominations for it. And I remember seeing this when I was a girl, on one of the old NBC movie shows back when. It’s stuck with me ever since, probably my favorite part of the movie … well, other than when the multi-millionaire returns to the farm of his youth, goes to milk the cow, and didn’t look to see whose undercarriage he was reaching for. (In other words, he got hold of the bull. The bull was … not amused.)

Photographed at Angle Manor’s Rose Theatre — my favorite place for sweeping staircase moments.

I just had to share this. Nothing about Second Life; I just ran across it elsewhere, and figured the other Game of Thrones mavens would enjoy a giggle:

Christmas Fashion 2 — Winter Fantasy

I was gonna invoke shades of The Nutcracker here, but this area doesn’t quite fit the bill. Oh, well, lol. It’s still pretty, though.

I’ve developed a partiality for United Colors, and this gown is one of their best. Lots of colors available, and you can choose either opaque or nicely sheer. (I’d go for the opaque for the party season, myself, but I don’t know what parties you’ll be going to ….)
