Miss Pettigrew fashion

The one good thing about having a ridiculous amount of TV channels is that there is ALWAYS something on. Thats how I came across the movie 'Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day'. It starred Amy Adams and was such a sweet, fun little movie. It was set in the 1930's and Amy Adams had some gorgeous outfits on.
The movie took place over
one day, so it was good to see a lot of outfit changes.

I wish I could look this good while lounging about at home. I loved her in this silk wrap, and particularly love the furs she got on. And the look is so cute and girly.

I thought this was a really great outfit. Again, I'm loving the colour. My favourite thing about this outfit is the hat: It looked so great. Along with the fur and the gloves, this outfit was really elegant and fits in so well with what was around during the 1930's.

I know you really can't see this one properly, but at least you can see the detail on the side. It was a pretty dress and fit her so well. What made me love it even more was the cute hairclip she has on. I think she had an equally pretty one on on the other side as well.

This was by far my favourite dress. I couldn't get a proper picture of it, but the neckline was simply amazing. I think you can kind of see it in the first picture. The neckline crossed across her neck and had shiny brooches on either side. The colour of the dress made it really glamourous as well.

I liked the design of this one. It was well cut and the hat was beautiful. And I'm in love with the brooch she has on.

Don't you just love it when a good movie has great costumes as well? Out of these outfits, I think the blue one would be my fave... although it's a tough pick. :)

I love elegant outfits such as these and so wish I had the lifestyle to get away with wearing them. Unfortunately for me though, I don't think silks and furs and hats would work terribly well! I especially love that cream jacket in the last pic :)

I have seen Amy Adams in Disney's "Enchanted", and I've been dying to see this one as well! She has worn the most beautiful outfits in all her movies, from what I have seen!

1930's Fashion is exquisite! It's hard to believe women managed to look so put together even though THe Depression was ruining so many people's lives!
