Daily Outfit

Now that January is almost over, (which I can't believe) I have decided that next month, the theme of Cinema Tuesdays shall be James Bond Parodies. And by James Bond, I of course mean Sir Sean Connery's era. Is there any other Bond? I think not. The sixties were a great time for spy films, with the Cold War being at it's height, the Space Race (hey, remember when we used to go to the Moon? We should do that again) and the big red button came this close to being pushed. If anyone would like me to talk about the non-Bond '60's films, just let me know. And since my classes at university have been cancelled for two weeks and I'll have some time on my hands, so I'll also delve into television spy shows from the sixties as well. Because the vintage community should not just be interested in classic films and older jazz and pop music, we should also watch more classic television. Shows may have had a smaller budget, but they did have more creativity, better plots, a better wardrobe and they are funner to watch.

From Russia With Love is for me the best Bond film. Although Timothy Dalton was very underrated in the role during the '80s/'90s, I think, and is my other favourite. :-)

My favourite '60s spy show is without doubt The Man From U.N.C.L.E., closely followed by Get Smart!... ;-)

Love the blog, by the way!

My dear, you look so deeply beautiful. I really do think this is one of my favourite outfits you've shared with us to date (I'm wild about the deeply crimson hued cardigan).

I agree entirely, while I do fancy Pierce (is there any red blooded gal alive who doesn't? ;D), Connery will forever be the "truest" of all the Bond gentlemen for me, too.

Wishing you a splendid Thursday & blissfully wonderful month of February!
