This brown dress and jacket is another one that is very heavy. How can you pass up a chance to photograph and two piece outfit that is not covered in sequin beads? #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes

It seems there has been on a streak of 60s style outfits with beading embellishments! Here is a cute mod green dress with some beaded along the collar and sleeves. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

Pastel Pink with only a bit of glitz on the pockets. Very sensible. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

Words cannot properly describe this glimmering nude outfit! There is a flesh colored slip that covers the body, and then you wear the mesh dress that is covered in beading and flower shapes! It’s truly a sight to behold that this photo could never do proper justice. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1970s

The dress from Smokey Joe’s Café that was covered in fringe and made it weigh what felt like 30 lbs. This beaded fringe dress is the opposite! It’s light as a feather and has beautiful movement. The gold is stunning in the light too! #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

This dress was made for a dancer! Probably someone smaller than a dancer! It’s a super cute outfit that it meant to be spun and sparkle in the stage lights. There is also a lovely bright orange petticoat that gives a wonderful reveal. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1980s

The Fall (though NYC Fall is practically non-existent). This cute house dress with the fall leave pattern. The matching belt is equally adorable, however you’d need to wear something underneath as it does seem warm enough for the cool evenings that are to come. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1940s

After spring comes summer! This is another Maxi Dress with a fabulous pattern. It’s made of a fabric that would be suitable to wear with a bathing suit underneath. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1970s

Let’s start off with a light subject and say that this dress falls into the category: Spring. It’s so cute and the pattern is of little pink and red cherries. It’s hard to see in the pattern but there is also some adorable trim along the sleeves and pockets. The perfect outfit for a spring outing. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1940s

This dress is so weird, the beading and color blocking go against the idea of lines. This dress was carefully designed, but it feels so loose and free! It’s from the Papermill Playhouse production of Dreamgirls. Whatever chorus person was lucky enough to wear this dress must have felt very mod at the time. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s #Dreamgirls

The shade of violet on this cute dress is so eye catching! It’s got a cute silhouette and the lace on top with the subtle beading is adorable! It doesn’t weigh it down and will make anyone who wears it look younger. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1950s

Hot-cha! Whoopee! And all that jazz. This dress is a cute little beaded dress that would be perfect in the finale of Chicago! #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1920s

The graphic “scratchiness” of the lines is very interesting to the eye. Peggy Olson from Mad Men would wear to the office to impress her boss. Then again it probably shows too much arm and would be better suited for Joan. #1960s #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes

It’s covered in tiny beads that make it shine like stars. It’s a pretty stiff dress, but looks mysterious with the mixture of dark and sparkles that seem to come from nowhere. #TDFCC KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

That’s the great thing about beading; it’s not just a decoration! The dress is from Smokey Joe’s Café and really brings to life the lyrics, “I used to dance, shake and do the hoochie-coo!” The ironic thing about this dress is that it feels like it weighs 50lbs! So if anyone is going to do shaking in that outfit, they need to be fit as a fiddle because it will wear them out. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s #SmokeyJoesCafe

This dress evokes Bette Davis where she plays a child star who cannot let go of her Vaudeville past. It isn’t a surprise to learn that this costume was in Thoroughly Modern Millie and was worn by the character Muffie when she is trying to pass herself off as a young lady. However, if they do make a musical version of Whatever Happened. . . , #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1920s #ThoroughlyModernMillie

“I’ve written a letter to daddy. . .” Was the beginning of the famous song Bette Davis sings in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? This dress evokes Bette where she plays a child star who cannot let go of her Vaudeville past. However, if they do make a musical version of Whatever Happened. . . , this costume would work for the show! #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1930s "ThoroughlyModernMillie

This dress is both delicate and vintage. As usual, it is the beading that does it. It feels like something you would wear on the first day of spring in Central Park. Though don't sit on the grass without a blanket, this dress hides nothing! #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1950s

This is the dress that Daisy Buchannan wore when she first met Jay Gatsby. Or maybe it’s the dress you hope you're wearing when you meet Mr. Gatsby? Either way, this dress has a delicate nature to it and looks as if pulling it would cause it to fall into pieces. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1920s

This dress though was in a production of Hairspray at Papermill Playhouse. It’s so cheery and colorful. #Hairspray #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

Learn a new word today: Maxi Dress. The term was coined to compete against the mini skirt of the 60s. The following dress is one of those counterparts to the mini. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s

This beaded beauty is a mesh top & jacket that are just too amazing to describe. It was from a personal donation and you can imagine that lady must have caused scandal because it looks see-through! It has a very Eve in the Garden of Eden look to it and I love it! #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1960s #Beaded

This dress is so cute! It’s also rigged to the last stitch. It is made to be ripped off without a second wasted so the actress can get into her next costume. It is from the show Grease and was worn by Cha-Cha, which surprised me because I never thought Cha-Cha would go for something so bright. It took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to assemble this dress, just because it has buttons does not mean they actually work. #TDFCC #KeepingUpWithTheCostumes #1950s #Grease
