To the great dismay of my bank account, I have discovered some pretty cool vintage Etsy shops. At this very moment, my friend Kyra and I are hunting for a cute dress, a good deal, etc. at our local coffee shop. (When I say local, I mean the epitome of Durham hipster culture. My coffee has shave molé on it…I don’t get it, but I like it, and you would too!) Anyway, I’m super psyched about zestvintage. Super great customer service, and the options are fun and bright. I also struggle because most of the vintage options I like are in the small/extra small range, which I am not…so this was a nice surprise. We’ll see if the dress looks good!
Back to R&H. “South Pacific.” A FABULOUS musical, that completely inspired and spurred on my desire to do some vintage hunting. Not that I wanted a vintage bikini, because something about that stresses me out a little bit– and none of them are lined…but it did spark some interest in me! Mitzi Gaynor is so gorgeous. I love “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair”. It was totally risqué to show an onscreen shower scene at the time!
Also, did you know my father, @Trenter88, made his stage debut as a sailor in “South Pacific”? I thought that would be interesting for insta fans of his to hear, because he’s so not theater-y. And yet, as some in-the-know Middle School boys have learned, the theater is an EXCELLENT place to meet girls. I can’t count the number of relationships that blossomed under the not so watchful eye of our “Peter Pan” director…
Based somewhere in the South Pacific, during World War II, I really enjoyed watching this musical. I like history, and I like music, so what’s not to like? (P.S. I saw it on Broadway with Kelli O’Hara, and man is she awesome.)
