Mission possible: Cinnamon's impeccable 1960s style April 8, 2011 14:43
She's smart. She's composed. She's cool. She's impossibly sexy. She's
always well-dressed. Who is this paragon of chic womanhood? Barbara Bain as Cinnamon Carter, the clever operative who graced Mission: Impossible from 1966 through 1969.
If you admire her style as much as I do, dear readers, if you want to emulate her fashion, may I suggest McCall's 8381? Yes, I may. Thank you for being so polite. The details, if you will: Designed by Geoffrey Beene. Copyright 1965. Bust 34. Complete. $35.
Another excellent choice, if I do say so myself, is McCall's 8004. This one is designed by Beene as well, and it's from 1966. Bust 32. Factory folds. $35.
And, of course, these two beauties are available at The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. But you knew all that, didn't you? Of course you did. (And, yes, we do ship abroad. Absolutely. With enthusiasm. Shipping fees do apply.)
