This is a classic combination of the white shirt with the pencil skirt, the look is simple yet chic. Add a colorful purse or clutch to the outfit to make it fun and stand out.

"Best Foot Forward" is about a cadet at military school who sends an invitation to a movie star to come to his military school dance, when she accepts the invitation a lot of trouble is created. This film is really fun! The script is witty and the musical performances are great. Also, I love the fact that Lucille Ball plays herself and how her comic performance is perfect. The film was adapted from the 1941 Broadway musical with the same title and it was released by MGM. Directed by Edward Buzzell, starring Lucille Ball, William Gaxton, Virginia Weidler, June Allyson, Chill Wills, Gloria DeHaven and Nancy Walker.
The songs in the musical are: "Buckle Down, Winsocki," "You're Lucky," "Wish I May," "Three Men on a Date," "Ev'ry Time," "The Three B's," "My First Promise" and "Alive and Kickin'," words and music by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. "Two O'Clock Jump" (A Variation on "One O'Clock Jump") by Count Basie and Harry James
"Flight of the Bumble Bee" by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov.

Nothing says springtime like snow! Last week, my husband and I bought flower seeds for our garden, he set up the tent in the backyard and our barbecue grill is already out. I love the snow but I just want to see the beautiful green trees and my flowers blooming. This is how everything looked this morning. =]
Our tent and beautiful covered trees. ♥

"You Were Never Lovelier" is about an Argentine heiress who thinks a penniless American dancer is her secret admirer. One of the best musicals of the 1940's featuring Fred and Rita together. There's a fascinating chemistry between them, dancing perfectly to the rhythm to numbers that were choreographed with charm and elegance. The songs are memorable, the score is great and the cast is excellent. Staring Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth, Adolphe Menjou and directed by William A. Seiter.
The fim also features Xavier Cugat and his orchestra.
The songs include in the musical are:
"Chui Chui" by Nicanor Molinare and "The Shorty George", arranged by Lyle Murphy.
"Dearly Beloved," "You Were Never Lovelier," "I'm Old Fashioned," "Ding Dong Bell," "Wedding in the Spring" and "On the Beam," music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Johnny Mercer.
My favorite dancing number is "The Shorty George". Seeing Fred and Rita dancing together is pure magic! I get so much joy watching this film, I don't even mind that is black and white. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

I still remember the first time I watched "The Wizard of Oz". Being a kid becomes hard to forget the first time seeing Munchkin land with the cute little Munchkins running around, and becomes believable that a Scarecrow, a Tin Man and a Cowardly Lion can actually sing and dance. At the end, I was wishing that I could be dancing my way on the yellow brick road to Oz with Dorothy and the whole gang.
"The Wizard of Oz" is based a classic children's book by L. Frank Baum, it's about a Kansas farm girl named Dorothy who dreams herself into a magical land of Oz where she must fight a wicked witch. Along the way, she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin man who needs a heart and a Cowardly Lion who needs courage. Starring Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr and Frank Morgan, directed by Victor Fleming.
Judy Garland singing "Over the Rainbow" is a priceless moment and timeless. Oh, how I love this song!
Other songs included in the film are: "The Merry Old Lof Oz", "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead", "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", "We're Out of the Woods", "If I Only Had a Brain", "If I Were King of the Forest" music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by E. Y. Harburg
"Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
"Follow the yellow brick road"
"I'm melting; I'm melting"
"A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others."
"There's no place like home"

I loved watching the Oscars and I must admit that everyone looked absolutely beautiful and radiant. I fell in love with Cate Blanchett's dress even though many people didn't like it. The beautiful gown is a lilac Givenchy Haute Couture with beaded and pleated details and surprising yellow beading in the back. She looked fresh, chic, a pure Hollywood classic.
So, which one was your favorite pick of the night?
