Bewitched Fashion

I'm sad that my favorite month is over.  Boo hoo!  At least the weather is going to be nice this week with plenty of sun.  We survived Trick or Treating in the rain and the Fall Festival but sadly it's time to pack up the Witches and other decorations.   
Speaking of Witches, we have been obsessed with the old TV show Bewitched ever since we picked up the DVD set at Costco.  I'm glad my daughter loves it and can take a break from the current obnoxious kid shows she watches.      

I loved the first season wardrobe for Samantha Stevens.  Since the show started in 1964, the dresses still have a 50's look but not as puffy.  This dress I'm wearing is very similar to what Elizabeth Montgomery wore on the first season.  We are only on the second season now and she has been pregnant for most of the beginning.  I hope the nice dresses appear soon, now that we are at the part where Tabitha has been born.        
I have always loved 50's dresses but this early 60's style without the crinoline petticoats make for a less costume look for everyday.  I also love the 3/4 sleeves which is another characteristic in the shows first season's dresses.  I'm now hooked on these dresses and have been searching for vintage and new in this style.  I was lucky to find this dress at ModCloth where I had a store credit that I used on top of a sale.
These are just a few of my decorations that I will soon be putting away.  The fabric one below is one of my favorite witches by Gathering Traditions.  I used to see this style for years every Halloween but this year was just a bad year for decorations.  There were mostly skeletons everywhere instead of my favorites, witches and black cats.
 Dress: ModCloth Star Studded Performance by Emily and Fin.  A few sizes left in comets like mine.  Coming soon in a feather print. 
 Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for Target in copper.  Old.

    1. Thank you. I love seeing your vintage clothing too! I love the 40's and 50's style of clothes and the conservative styles from the 60's and 70's.
      Have a nice evening,

  2. Oh that dress is fabulous! Now I want to watch Bewitched! I also want that orange coat with the black cats the witch doll is wearing. In a person size. Wouldn't that be fabulous to wear on Halloween. Or just... in general?!! Smooches to your sweet kitties!

    1. Thank you. The Bewitched shows are really fun and addicting.
      My daughter wanted that Barbie coat recreated for her Halloween costume because she was a Queen of the Black Cats. We never got around to making anything so she just wore a cat mask with a black short tutu over her black maxi skirt and a long sleeved black shirt. It was so easy just to use regular clothes instead of a real costume. Luckily some face glitter and Burt's Bees lip shimmer gave her more of that costume feeling.
      Have a great evening,

  3. This is a gorgeous print and silhouette on you. I love that era of fashion, and I also loved watching Bewitched as a girl! Watching old shows on Nick at Nite was my favorite: I Love Lucy, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, The Brady Bunch, etc. I think it's because of those shows that I grew to love vintage fashions.

    This is such a classic, feminine look. I also love how you've styled your hair. Absolutely lovely, Stacey!

    1. Thank you for the sweet compliment! I'm now in love with this dress and I hope ModCloth does more prints. There is a new feather print but I prefer leaves and flowers over feathers.
      You make a good point about falling in love with vintage because of classic TV shows. As a kid I watched a lot of old movies and the old shows you mentioned which was a great education in good fashion. I'm glad my daughter enjoys the old shows because it's also a good education in good comedy.
      Have a great rest of the weekend,

  4. Thisis my favorite dress! It is so special and pretty! And I love blue on you. Actually I have not seen a color that looks bad on you! Lucky girl!

    Can I ask how much was the boxed set at Costco? Was it recent? I would love to own that. I loved that show as a kid and I am sure my family would, too! My kids are obsessed with Full House. They watch it whenever it is on.

    You have great Halloween decorations!

    1. Thank you! It's fun to branch out and try other colors instead of pink all the time.
      I bought the Bewitched box set around the beginning of October and the price was great at $23. I have not seen them lately but your Costco may still have some around. I remember seeing I Dream of Jennie too. I would love to find a set around the same price of That Girl with Marlo Thomas.
      Good luck in your search,
      Stacey

  5. What a gorgeous dress. I love the print. You look amazing.

    I have never watched Bewitched, but I think I would enjoy it. I used to watch Sabrina when I was a teenager.

    1. Thank you. Luckily this is a dress that ModCloth recreates in different prints. I'm hoping to find the leaf print that I missed out on this past spring.
      If you liked Sabrina, you would like Bewitched. Sabrina was really cute and I used to watch it too.
      Have a nice evening,
      Stacey
