Cry Baby & 1950's Fashion


The other night Chris and I went and watched Cry Baby at a local movie theater.
I saw this movie when it first came out back in 1990 with my friend and her mom. I have watched the movie since then- but, only on the small screen. So, it was a real treat to see this fun campy adventure on the big screen again. The night we went and saw the movie my outfit for the evening was part drape and part square. The square part of my ensemble was my full skirt (Traci Lord's character Wanda states "I wouldn't be caught dead in a full skirt") and the drape part of my ensemble was my seamed black fishnet tights, black eyeliner and deep red lipstick. Being a fan of 1950's fashion I enjoy both the full skirted look and the wiggle dress. I highly recommend going out and renting Cry Baby and relishing in it's fashion, comedy, drama and musical sequences!
