I've loved That's Entertainment! as long as I can remember. It's been playing on heavy rotation at our house lately as I introduce the film to my two-year-old. She's particularly fond of the Esther Williams segment and often requests to see the woman swimming with the music. Anyhow, I've been watching the film lately for a little fashion inspiration — there's something about technicolor to make the dresses really pop.
Of all the gorgeous dresses, the most unlikely of inspirations came from this one "behind the scenes" scene that was only a few seconds on screen. It's my fondness for everyday way that of course makes this one pop out. In honor of this dress, here a few Etsy finds from the 1940s in that spirit.
