Ginger Rogers

Kitty Foyle

Today’s birthday girl is screen-legend Ginger Rogers.

Back in her heyday, Rogers inspired a trend when she wore a particularly austere shirtwaist dress in the film “Kitty Foyle.”  The dress took on the name of her character, remaining popular throughout the 1940s as it was easy to reproduce during the war.

In my book, I associate shirt dresses and coat dresses with Virgo.  In fact, I recommend that Cancer women do everything they can to avoid looking “austere,” including avoiding Goth-inspired styles.  For that reason, it’s interesting that this style has been resurrected as today’s Goth-Lolita dress made famous in the second half of the twentieth century when it was worn by the character Wednesday Addams in “The Addams Family.”

Perhaps it suits those characters, but it’s a little too severe for the typical Cancer woman.  I complain that there are a lot of Cancer women out there who can keep their boobs under wraps.  There are just as many who dress like they’re going to a funeral.  Somewhere in between is the Cancer woman’s ideal style.
