This is my second look from Barbara Stanwyck's The Lady Eve. You can read my complete review of this fun little film here and see the semi-formal bronze lame look that was also inspired by this film. Suffice it to say that I just love Barbara Stanwyck from her femme fatale roles in film noir to her zanny comedies and earnest feel-good flicks all the way to the 1980s epic mini-series The Thorn Birds, I just love this broad.
This outfit seems to be a bit of a departure for Barbara, as it is a bit too tongue-in-cheek. Perhaps this is because she is wearing it while her character (a con artist) is trying to seduce and dupe Henry Fonda's character. Most of this action happens while they are on a boat, and this look fits in perfectly with our sailor/nautical inspired week this week! The look, while unconventional, is fresh and neat and preppy with a fun twist or two.
