40s fashion in Poirot

I adore this Chinese hat - red on the outside, black on the inside, making black squares in the face of the wearer :) And this kimono thing is really something!

Below: they call this white romper-ish thing a 'swimsuit'! I love it.

I also love this hat, white under, black over, and the black stripe on top...
Note: they were not going to a party (just showing off their status).

Television movies/series like Hercules Poirot and Miss Marple often inspire me fashion wise. (Sadly, what inspires me from the past is mostly impossible to obtain in stores.) They are more or less recent productions, but are set to times like the 40s (when Agatha Christie wrote the novels). Here sharing with you pictures from the movie 'Evil under the sun' (1982).

Have you seen My Fair Lady? There are some fabulous hats that you'll just die over if you love that black and white one! It's my fav movie so I may be biased. It has Audrey Hepburn in it which I think makes it even better! :-D

Thanks for the comments! I need to make another post asap, have been without Internet for a while.

Sandra: Takker :) Det er litt spesielt å ha vokst opp med _en_ rikskanal, gir NRK en 'nostalgi-fordel' ... ;)

Midnight traveller: thanks for the tip, i actually have not seen that movie so it is now on my list of movies to watch!
