Celebrating Doris Day: 3 Movie House Tours and 2 Fashion Posts

Ever since I heard about Doris Day's passing on May 13th, I've been wanting to share a post linking back to some of the movies of her's that I've shared here on the blog.

It's the weekend!  Have you anything special planned this beautiful fall day?

It wouldn't be fair to share all the great hats Doris Day wore in the movies, Lover Come Back and Pillow Talk, without also sharing the fabulous dresses with which they were paired.   After watching these movies, I can understand why there are whole … [Read more...]

Vintage Hats and Doris Day: Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back

I'm a picky movie goer. I don't like scary, sad or super intense movies.  Just give me something romantic, funny or inspiring and I'm happy.  A couple of years ago, I purchased this "Romance Collection" set of movies starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson.  It included three movies: Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back and Send Me No Flowers. When the movies arrived, I was too busy to watch them so I tucked them … [Read more...]
