Happy Friday, dolls! I am so excited that it's finally Friday because that means that today is vintage repair day with my girlfriend, Amanda. She's coming over to work on fixing hems, sewing on buttons, taking things in and letting them out and all of those other things that some of our well-loved vintage garments need from time to time. Anywho, as promised, this week's Fashion and Film Friday pick is Pleasantville, Starring Tobey Maguire, Reese Witherspoon and my sister's favorite star, William H Macy.


When teenage siblings, David and Jen fight over the remote and break it, a strange old man appears at the door with a new, magical remote which transports the teens into the world of David's favorite black and white television show, Pleasantville. Plesantville appears to be a perfect world of innocence, high morals and straight A grades. When their modern day influence brings a little color to the world, the people of the town begin to notice and as we all know, people of a different color are treated differently sometimes.

The fantastic 50's costumes in Pleasantville were designed by Judianna Makovsky. This talented film fashionista also designed costumes for A Little Princess, Practical Magic, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, X-Men: The Last Stand.

Pleasantville is an absolute must-see for your netflix queue or next movie rental.

  3. This Movie gets played at the Drive-In ALOT during the summer! Everyone I know just loves it, if it be for the sterotypes, the clothes (I LOVE THE CLOTHES and sets) its just a great movie all around. In fact this morning I had a pleasantvill moment with my new car, It was raining and i couldnt find the switch for the windsheild wipers and I said to my friend "Is that REAL RAIN?! To which he said "MY GOD PULL OVER WE NEED TO GET TO A BOWLING ALLY! :)

  11. One of my favourite movies of all times, because I don't think its anti racist message could be more clearly expressed. Great vintage detail of course.
