Blue Eyeshadow, More Frames, and All Around Class

There was a time in years past when my siblings and I would sit in front of the TV in the afternoons watching reruns of I Spy, I Dream of Jeannie, and Star Trek, to name a few. Naturally, we had our favorites but we watched whichever came on. But always shows from the time between the 40's and 70's. 

A quick synopsis: I Spy is a TV show that ran for 3 seasons between 1965 and 1968 about two American agents undercover as Tennis professional and his trainer, covering assignments all over the world, despite the fact that the first season seems to remain in Asia.

Episode 10 of season 1 is called Tatia. Kelly falls in love with a double agent and Scotty has to convince him of her true identity.

Although Tatia had about 5 or 6 outfits in this 50 minute show, this was one of the best. The blue scarf covering her hair and casual striped sweater gave her a real down-to-earth look. Her makeup too was fairly basic, or at least as basic as makeup can be in the 60's.

Her glasses were simple and very similar to others I have seen and posted here on my blog (see here). But I had to mention them just the same. I love the color. 

In another episode, Sheldon Leonard plays a high dollar fence who has attained important microfilm. And, you guessed it, Kelly and Scotty must get it back. His frames are little more square than Tatia's and dark in color but the over all shaping is the same. It's that 60's style that never fails to impress me.

Julie London also stars in this episode called Three Hours on a Sunday Night (Ep. 12, Season 1). In keeping with fashion of the day, her hair is short but full. In comparison to many of her other hair styles in her younger days, I think this one does her face slim justice.

She wore furs, shimmery dresses, and blue eyeshadow. I believe the 60's was the era when colored eyeshadow was the "thing". Admittedly, pictures, moving or still, were often black and white in the earlier days so it is hard to tell what color makeup a person may be wearing. But it is a fact that neutrals were more common during the 40's and 50's. Her lipstick also is a lovely shade. Not too much and not too little.

But despite all the glitz and glamour of their female costars, the stars of the show never cease to impress. Here, Kelly is in blues with a satin ascot and Scotty in beige with signature shades. As usual, immaculate and ready for anything.
