Movies & Style :: Ms. Pettigrew Lives for a Day

I’ve been collecting pins featuring the style of some of my favorite movies. I first watched Ms. Pettigrew Lives for a Day, based on the 1938 novel of the same name which was written by Winifred Watson (1906 – 2002), when I happened upon it on TV. I thought the title sounded excellent! I am such a sucker for a good title. I clicked over and the beauty of the film, and the great story and performances by the actors, forced me to stay tuned.

It didn’t hurt that the film stars Frances McDormand and Amy Adams, two of my favorite ladies.

1930s fashion is so beautifully portrayed in this film. The wardrobe and the decor threatened to steal the show from the actors.
I mean, look at Delysia’s bedrooom.

Can you even stand it???

These are some of my favorite looks.

Plus, Moaning Myrtle aka Jude (B. Jones’ bestie) looking lovely!

         I bought this DVD recently. I haven’t cracked it open yet, but tonight is the night.

I hope you’re having a good night!

  1. I looooove the movie. The costuming? Fantastic. I know I must be into textiles b/c when I’m watching something with great clothes/decor, I try to google the costume and set designers, hehe.
