I went through a massive Gunne Sax dress phase (for those not in the know, Gunne Sax = 70s prairie revival. Lace, high collars, floor length skirts, puffed sleeves) which I attribute, in part, to this movie:

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Mysterious happenings!  Hysterical girls!  White gauzy gorgeousness!


All movie stills from Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock




Slow, super weird,  ultra dreamy, and one of two movies my cat can’t get enough of (the other? Walkabout. Also Australian.  And based on a book.  And made in the 70s.  Coincidence?!).
