Old Hat Movie Afternoon: “The Big Sleep”

In the tradition of Old Hat retro fun, the lovely Emma hosted a film noir movie afternoon, featuring “The Big Sleep” (1946). ’tis a curious film, no doubt. Despite the complex plot that required Wikipedian assistance to follow, it was all rather captivating and sexy. Over a spread of scones and champagne, we ogled Humphrey Bogart and tried not to weep over the aesthetic perfection of it all. Oh, the fashions. Let’s not even talk about the fashions.


The film noir shrine.

I will, however, show you the Old Hat fashions. You could say we were a tad overdressed for a casual two o’clock in the afternoon movie viewing, but overdressed shmoverdressed, I say.


Our host Emma, looking all mysterious under a fabulous hat (and omg, tiki bar).


Jesse and Tim, looking très adorable.


Et moi.

  1. You all look absolutely marvelous! I adore your caplet (I have a black one that I love to bits, but have been thinking lately that I desperately need a white one, too) and those cute shoes.
