Ok, I love Julie Andrews. Still, I couldn't put my finger on it, but something about the whole smiling old timey trend reminded me of something, and I couldn't figure out what it was until I saw 5 minutes of Thoroughly Modern Millie just now (I have a night class, gotta wind down somehow) and realized that was it. The creepiness of fake nostalgia? Check. Corny? Check. Cutesy rather than cute? Clearly. It's not exactly the same, obvs, but it's at least one strain of the same bacteria.
It's not going to ruin my love of Julie Andrews because she was a lot more than whatever this is, but I cannot deny that the cardboard fake flappers and relentless smiling of the Lumineers cello girl have something in common.
