    Being a lover of classic movies, check out the movie “Lucy Gallant”. Jane Wyman portrays a jilted well-to-do New Yorker traveling West and she winds up in a rough-and-tumble Texas town. The townswomen are enthralled by this fashionable woman. So Lucy decides to sell her trousseau, which eventually leads to opening an elegant clothing store which grows into a very successful business. Edith Head makes a cameo. Don’t know if it’s online, but I saw it on TCM.

    Ohhh love this collection of movies and tv shows. Some of my favorite movies for style inspiration are oldies with Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. “How to Marry a millionaire is an oldie but goodie. I linked to a post I wrote featuring all the beautiful outfits from the movie.
