If you know me in person, you will know that I absolutely love musicals. I have a Pandora station devoted to showtunes. And sometimes I have an insane urge to pas de bouree down the street.

One of my favorite musicals is "Hello, Dolly!" with Barbara Streisand. It's so jovial and fun and the songs are beyond catchy (you might recognize them from Wall-E). The dance numbers are also super fantastic as they should be since the movie is directed by none other than the amazingly talented Gene Kelly!

The costumes in this 1969 movie are WONDERFUL. The colors are very reminiscent of the late 60s, lots of tans, muted pastels, cream with brown and black. I forgot to screencap the outfits before I returned it to Netflix, but perhaps you can find some around the internet.


  1. don't know you in person but i do know that musicals are awesome!

    a family friend mentioned that he was going to take his son to feed some birds in a park and in a snap, "Feed the Birds" started playing in my head!

  2. I love musicals too...but I must admit I never saw this one...It's a shame but I think it's because everybody seems to make laugh about Barbara Streisand! But you made me want to watch it!

  3. i love musicals! now i'm going to be singing hello dolly for the rest of the night!

  4. Omg! I love 'Helly, Dolly!' It's one of my favorites also. I watched that a few years ago when I was in high school, and my brother liked it to. Hehe. :)

  5. I knew we had a lot in common!! I LOVE Hello Dolly, it's my favorite. I only discovered it two years ago and have been in love ever since...and I do believe that it was my love for WALL*E that made me seek it out...
    The colors in that film are so amazing, all the dreamy pastels...*sigh*

    Ps I still have a crush on Gene Kelly and think that we were fated to be together because my name is Kelly Jean ;) Ha that man!!
