Grey Gardens

The other night I watched Grey Gardens, the 70's documentary about mother and daughter Big Edie and Little Edie. I've been wanting to see this for years, and then there it was, in my friend's bookshelf. 
The film documents the mother and daughter with high-society connections, related by blood to Jackie O., yet live in a mansion eaten through by raccoons and cats and piled high with tin cans and newspaper. 
Little Edie became famous for the way she puts together her outfits, from random things laying about.  To her, they were the absolutely right "costume for the day."
