Dorothea's Closet

[1]
I just finished watching Fried Green Tomatoes for the umpteenth time (I think I have a weak spot for stories set in Alabama). For some reason I can’t find any decent still shots from the movie online which is a shame because it showcases just the kind of simple cotton frocks I’m so in love with right now. Am I missing the secret Fried Green Tomatoes website or something?

I wish more of those pretty dresses had managed to weather the years but it seems that most of them have just disintegrated. And when I do find one, it tends to be well above my budget. Such is the case for Dorothea's Closet. It's packed full of just the type of dresses I wish were packing my closet. Unfortunately they're well out of my budget, but it doesn't hurt to look, right?

she does have an amazing collection i've perused a few times. so much lovely eye candy. but her prices are totally insane. $90 for a 60s polyester hawaiian shift w no label is just ridiculous.
.. but it is really cute...

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES WAS A WONDERFUL MOVIE
AND THE FROCKS WERE SIMPLY FANTASTIC. WOULDN'T MIND WEARING THEM ON A HOT DAY OF SUMMER.

I watched that movie so many times when I was little...How cute it is!! And I am a victim of the southern charm, too. Dresses and frocks included.

Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favourite films from when I was growing up! The costumes really are adorable!
Those dresses are amazing but she obviously knows it- they are so so expensive.
