INSPIRED BY: 'A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN'








It's been so many years since I first watched A League Of Their Own, but even now whenever it pops up on my Netflix suggestions I get goosebumps.  Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell playing best friends!  Geena Davis catching that baseball with jaw-dropping quick wrists!  All the slides into the bases which caused the actresses seriously bad grazes and cuts!  And the longest pee in film history (probably) by Tom Hanks!  Here, read 25 fun facts about the film!

I did a dissection of the style of the film last month and was itching to try putting together a similar outfit to their '40s wartime looks.  The dress is from New Look (can you say "bargain"?), the shoes are from ASOS and are the closest thing to Madonna's saddle shoes I could get without spending loads on postage costs from America, and the cardigan is an old vintage one I got from Beyond Retro years ago.  You need a chunky knit for those late night bus rides when you're going from state to state to plaaaay-ha-hay-baaaaall.

THIS USED TO BE MY PLAYGROUND.  Not really, it's just a nice garden area near my house.
