We have enjoyed the F/X network docu-drama television series, “Feud” so much and hated to see it end last night (Sun., 4/23). If you somehow missed it, it’s a fictionalized version of the long-time grudge match between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, arguably the most talented and beautiful actresses of their generation. The series is full of fabulous outfits and mid-century glamour, and the costume and set design are as much fun to watch as Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange in their respective roles. Want to keep the “Feud” fun going? How about adding some “Feud”-inspired items to your wardrobe or home? We’ve got some great examples of vintage glamour at Michael Taylor At Home…
You’d almost never catch the fabulous ladies of “Feud” without a cocktail in hand…so let us help you add some mid-century inspiration to your bar cart or tabletop. We have a beautiful and diverse selection of barware and glassware from the 1950’s-60’s that will give your cocktail hour at home some old Hollywood glam.
Ready to take your style game up a notch? Rock a turban like Joan, or a fabulous flowered chapeau like Bette…we’ve got great examples of both in our vintage ladies boutique. While hats might not be everyday wear for most of us, events like Steeplechase and the Kentucky Derby are coming and are a fun excuse to wear a fabulous hat.
Do you know that the great Bette Davis reportedly smoked an average of 100 cigarettes/day until her death? Wow! While we aren’t fans of smoking, we like the style of vintage ashtrays, and think that they make great coasters for drinks!
Throughout the series, Joan wears an assortment of fabulous vintage loungewear. We’ve got a bunch of similar and VERY stylish mid-century pieces that will make you feel like a vintage movie star.
Here’s a photo of a young Bette Davis (note the cigarette!) in a flowing v-neck dress…and a similar style in our collection at Michael Taylor At Home. You’ll be ready for your close-up in this gorgeous gown!
And here’s a green dress that’s reminiscent of one that Jessica Lange wears as Joan Crawford in the series…such a pretty color! And don’t get us started on costume jewelry. We have THE best selection of vintage costume jewelry in Nashville, hands down.
Even if your life is more down-to-earth than Hollywood drama, you can always enjoy a little fun and glamour. We’ve got lots of ideas, inspiration and deals at Michael Taylor At Home…drop by this week to see what’s new in store!
