It is the story about Charity

a young woman (played by Shirley MacLaine)

who is endearing, honest, trusting,

wanting to love and waiting to be loved.

Yet, finally realising that to live

“hopefully ever after”  instead of  happily ever after

is sometimes the more realistically obtainable.

And action ! …

‘The Rhythm of Life’

is sung by Sammy Davis Jr.

The scene is a visual feast of quintessential ’60s fashion vibe:



vibrant colour combos

fur gilets

tight leather trousers

wide leg jeans

bell bottoms

floral garland headband

feather head dress

stock heel leather ankle boots

suede knee high boots with fringe

large belts cinched at waist

bold jewelry

tunic tops


Feeling groovy in fearless fashion!
