Wives with Beehives

Thanks to my friend Dawn for cluing me in to this upcoming TLC show. Should be interesting to see! It's described as "four women whose fashion sense, flair for decorating and moral compasses are inspired by 1950s housewives".

The show will air on December 27th at 10 PM Eastern. The preview makes it look a little too campy for my taste (never thought you'd hear me shun the camp, right?) as TLC often does - so I hope that that they take the time to thoughtfully help viewers understand why some of us have so much admiration for the decades before us.

(Just go to your happy place during the ad. Seems we can't get away from them these days.)

Three of these wives are my friends - Dollie, Amber, and Leslie. You might even get a chance to get a peak of Mr. Tiny and Mary in one of the segments. CAN'T WAIT FOR 12/27!!!!

Beth said...

Wow, I really don't know how I didn't hear about this either! It'll be interesting to see how they portray vintage lovers....

Ahh I totally read Dolly's blog already! She's so cute!

Kimmie: All high-tech! I totally wish I had a DVR.

Wacky Tacky: REALLY? Can you give me links to their blogs if they have them.

Beth: I hope it's good. I hope that it's wonderful and it becomes a series and more and more people want to go back in time with us. : )

Robert: He TOTALLY is. I bet you'll be able to.

Betty2Tone: Can you give me a link? Maybe I do too and just don't realize. I follow so many blogs that I can't keep up.

Dollie's hair FOREVERRRRRR....I'm excited to see this show and check out these girls' blogs!

Dollie is the only one with a blog. Therockabillysocialite.blogspot.com. Amber is a singer - Amber Foxx. You may have seen her on my blog - desert adventures, cowboy birthday party, pink dressing room. Leslie is a business woman, wife, mom. We all live pretty close to one another. Just partied with Dollie & Amber this weekend!!!

Dakota said...

Wow!!! I'm really excited to watch this! I follow Dollie's blog Rockabilly Socialite too; she's got the most killer wardrobe and house.

I'm also wondering how a vintage-centric show on TLC will alter the public reactions for small-town vintage gals like myself. Maybe it'll help more people "get" us retro nuts ;)

How is it you don't read Dollie's blog? You will like her house; she has a lot of cute stuff. I think this show is going to be really fun...also, I've seen pics of Amber's dressing room and it is TO DIE for.

Finally something worth checking out on TLC.

Kitsch n' Keen said...

I'm excited to see this as well; however, I'm more than certain TLC "nudged" people in directions to say certain things, etc. just like they did with My Collection Obsession. I'd say to take everything with a grain of salt and enjoy!

Michelle C. Kroft said...

Wow, that looks like a fun show and I hadn't heard of it yet so thanks for sharing! Very cool that a reader knows the girls. They are super cute and I will check out Dollie's blog too. I love getting dolled up in my vintage wear, but I'm so busy (and let's face it a little lazy too) when it comes to dressing up and doing hair/makeup. heehee ;)
