Five Take: Movie character

Howdy!! I'm a bit late with my Five Take this week, I had 2 huge bookings for my business so was out about across 2 counties of our fair land providing tea and cake for the masses!

For those of you who are new to the blog, Five Take is where myself and four other gorgeous plus size bloggers decide on a weekly theme/style/time period etc and do our own take on it.....ok, so this week? Movie Character, ermmm ok, I was mega stumped at first and then I thought about a dress I was lucky enough to recently win courtesy of the oh so talented Ashanti of Adorn Girl.

It was so floaty and pretty it reminded me of the dress baby wears at the end of Dirty Dancing.

Yes, I know its oh so cliche and girly to love Dirty Dancing, but I spent 2 years of my life pretty much watching this film everyday and loving every second of it, although looking back now I was way too young to understand the politics and sex I just thought it was pretty people dancing!

So the dress looks nothing like Baby's dress, but I'd like to think it's a modern take on what she wore, the curls in the hair are more loose, and the dress is a different shape but I think it has a "feel" of what she wore, its floaty and girly and I feel pretty in it!!



Now all I need is a strapping chap to lift me above his head.....*hunts around for Mr BeBe*............

I can't wait to see who all the other Five Takers chose as their characters, I'm sure they're way cooler than mine, but I'm a saddo and I'm ok with that!!!

  6. Did you know, I only watched DD for the first time this year! I obviously led a sheltered childhood... So when I did watch it I was like "what is all the fuss about its an Ooookay film." If I watched back to the future for the first time as an adult, I'd probably have the same response!

    Lovely dress.

    1. Yeh I think all my feelings towards it are based on how it made me feel as a kid, and for the record, Back to the Future is still awesome as an adult.

  7. Love love love!! I agree that is a great modern take on her dress. But god I love that film...my mum is a maaajor Patrick Swayze fan, so I grew up watching Ghost and Dirty Dancing at an age where I was probably too young to be doing so....but yeah, its just one of those films where merely its name can make my mum, sister and I smile and chat for ages!

  8. Very cute! I think you're totally right abotu it having that airy, light, feminine feel that Baby's original dress had. This was a tricky one :) Excited to see what the others do!
