Sister Bertrille (Sally Field), The Singing Nun, 1967-1970.
It's probably just me...but today's frock reminds me of something hipster nuns might have worn back in the late 60's - you know, when some of them ditched their traditional habits to fit in with the rest of the world...
(although, even a hipster nun would've kept her knees covered! In future Frocktober posts, I will be doing that too!)
I reckon Sister George from Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows (along with its prequel, The Trouble With Angels , one of my all-time favourite flicks) could've worn something very similar to this Gala Travelon linen frock. It has something of the uniform about it. I love the little box pleats and brown top-stitching detail though.
Perhaps you think I'm talking out of my hymn book with all this Nun stuff, but after all, I've got a bit of a thing for them...Remember?
little Kylie, 1972.
(I thought it deserved another airing - some of you might have missed it first time around - and it's good for a laugh)
"The Flying Nun", "The Singing Nun", Audrey Hepburn in "The Nun's Story", Rosalind Russell in the flicks I mentioned above, I loved them all!
And I love you too, for your generous support and sponsorship.
To date we have raised the incredible sum of, drum rolllllllll,
$1110.50! for research into ovarian cancer.
If that's not awesome, I don't know what is!
