The Life and Times of a Skirted Vintage Thrift Shopper

The Thin (Wo)Man

If anyone has ever watched ‘The Thin Man’ series, then you’ll no doubt be acquainted Myrna Loy’s fabulous wardrobe throughout the films. From gorgeous suits with huge fur collars, to slinky evening wear, she plays Nora Charles to perfection; sarcastically witty and simply dazzling.

My outfit today isn’t what I would really consider close to any of her outfits, but it is lightly inspired. A simple black dress with a velvet blazer.

As I said, it’s lightly inspired. There’s only one Nora Charles..and only one actress beautful enough to create her for us.
