She is, Polly Maggoo!

We had planned to go to the Beatles exhibition today, but decided to wait as we thought that it might be a crowded for opening day, so instead we stayed home had pancakes and watched movies all day

One movie I like to watch largely for the visuals is Who are you, Polly Magoo?

This movie from 1966 takes a satirical look at the fashion industry and its opulence 

The main protagonist is Polly Magoo. Model and It Girl from New York who everyone is enamored with. 

A TV show interviews her and the host falls in love, while a Prince sees her photo in a magazine and falls for her also, ordering for his best secret agents to go find her.

The Bliss of Mrs Blossom - the movie

In case I haven't made it clear by naming one of my dresses after it - I'm a big fan of the movie The Bliss of Mrs Blossom

I came across it back when I was 16 or so on a Saturday afternoon when channel 9 took a rare break from Clint Eastwood and Elisabeth Taylor films to show this visual treat.
I finally got a DVD copy a few years ago, so now let me share with you some of my favourite scenes and clothing from the film
