The holidays are now coming to a head. Homes are decorated, children are on vacation, and the fridges are stuffed with things to cook and bake. But one of the things I love about the holidays is watching or rewatching classic holiday films. Some I have watched more than a dozen times and some like "Meet Me In St. Louis" (1944) I recently saw for the first time. One of my all time favorites is White Christmas (1954). It's one of those films just brimming with fun and joy. And yet in the midst of all the laughter you'll find yourself moved and in tears. While in some scenes you'll find yourself in awe of the costumes and dance scenes. 

This year happens to be the 65th Anniversary of White Christmas (1954). In honor of this anniversary I wanted to do something special. I loved the costumes made for Vera-Ellen in the film because everything she wore was so stylish and feminine. One of my favorite outfits is in the scene when she is trying to convince Phil that they should get engaged in order for her sister to stop being overprotective. 

To create this look I pulled out pieces from my closet and put together vintage accessories I already had. All I had to add to the ensemble was a white turtleneck. I purchased one from J Crew that was originally $35 dollars and I snagged it for under $4 with sales and coupons. I think doing recreates based on classic films/tv shows or period films/tv shows is going to be a blast. I plan to do a whole lot more in the coming new year but I don't see the point of it if I have to spend a heap of money on the outfits. 

A Vintage Nerd Recreates is going to marry my passions for Old Hollywood and Fashion. I also hope it will inspire others by exploring their personal style and also bring some attention to the film being spotlighted. Keep in mind I will always recreate with A Vintage Nerd flair because what I am doing is not costuming or cosplay but rather a celebration of a character or film.

What classic films/tv shows or period films/tv shows would you like to see recreated here on A Vintage Nerd?
