If only I had a time machine


To travel back in time and snatch up the clothes off miss Bette Davis' back. I would feel a bit bad and she might end up running around in her knickers with an ice cream cone. On the bright side I would be the best dressed gal anyone has ever seen for Independence day. Bette's ensemble in this photograph is my inspiration and dream outfit for the 4th of July. If only I had seen this picture a couple months ago I could have tried to recreate an outfit inspired by Bette's sailor number. I love every detail of this ensemble down to her glasses and I am not sure whats under her arm it looks like another scarf or a tiny clutch but I love it any who, any ideas on what it is? Hmmm maybe its a bow she took out of her hair?

  1. Seems to be exactly the same color as her scarf! But an odd shape. Intriguing! Love her glasses - such effortless style!

    Have a wonderful July 4th!

  5. The edges do look like the ribbon that's on the front of the shirt, maybe a hair scarf?

  7. Yes, fun, and I think it's gloves under the arm, too. And, gee, isn't she pretty with no fake-bake tan? Rarity these days...happy holiday!

  9. Such a playful, beautiful, timelessly wonderful outfit! I had no idea green lensed shades existed in her day, something about knowing they did - and she she wore them! - puts a big smile on my face :)


    Happy wishes for a marvelous 4th, sweetie!!!

  14. I colorized that photo.

    I'm pretty sure it's a handkerchief in her breast pocket.

  15. OMG, I am insanely huge Bette Davis fan and when I stumbled around this picture I was taken aback. I haven't seen this pic before, being it colorised makes it an even bigger delight.

    The whole outfit screams to be replicated! Check out my spot, I have just dedicated my today's posting to Bette Davis.
