Cinematic Inspiration : Valley of the Dolls

I hate the wording “camp classic” whenever people describe this movie. It’s one of those  movies that tells a story of a certain time with lots of glorious exadurations of styles, colors and decor. I love it! The movie is about three ladies trying to make it in showbuisness each in their own way and with a different style. Although i love edgy chic 60s mod style this movie also shows a lot of the preppy 60s chic (Barbara Parkins) which is very feminine and charming. Examples of this mostly the huge hair, headbands two piece ensembles. Patty Duke just epitomized cuteness. Then there’s Sharon Tate, who would still be a vamp if she were wearing a bin bag.

I leave you to be inspired by yourself..
