The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep (1946) is one of my favourites when it comes to film noir. I am a sucker for the Bacall/Bogart double act ;)

Philip Marlowe played by Bogart certainly makes it into my top three private detectives. The other two are detective Brenner and Dirk Gently which are most excellent but alas, contain no fashion to share :D


Short shorts :) She is wearing some cutesy wedges with this ensemble but I couldn't get a decent capture of a full length shot.


Darn. Bacall always looks amazing.




I definitely want to stock up on some berets this winter. :)


What a serious veil, huh? This is one unusual hat! You all know I like her blouse. Could I ever resist a bow? :)

The weekend is closing in you guys! :)

  3. Hello! Thanks for your comment, I love finding other people who hated that film! It does seem to happen all the time with set-in-the-olden-days flicks, the movie is rubbish but the costumes are amazing.

    Haven't seen the Big Sleep yet, another thing I must put on my list.

  4. That's it. Look what you've done. I am now suffering a complete and utter compulsion to buy a beret!
