Bonnie and Clyde

i have always loved the movie, Bonnie and Clyde. Most notably for the fashion, the colors, lines...of course the "vintage-ness" of it all.
As a huge advocate of "vintage-slip-as-a-dress-" I particularly adore the screen shoot of Bonnie in a vintage slip and beret. Never mind that she is wearing a sublime A-line wool skirt, I zero in on the vintage slip. One part delicate, innocent, virginal white and the other side knowing, adult and a bit naughty...with the hat still on. The coin necklace is gorgeous as well. A bit of flash with lingerie is always good.
I am a sucker, no doubt, for the silhouette of the 30's. The tight fitting, knitted, baby doll sweaters. Berets, mermaid or tulip type skirts. Spectator shoes, knitted suits, etc etc.
The story of Bonnie and Clyde has lead me to a virtual rabbit hole...most notably stuck on the part Blanche Barrow played.
Why not stay here, at the Joplin Hideout, for a romantic 3 day vacation? it certainly is on my vacation wish list.
