”I Feel Pretty” is one of the most loved songs from Leonard Bernstein’s Broadway hit “West Side Story”.
Set in the Upper West Side of New York in the 1950s, the musical tells a modern version of Shakespeare’s love story Romeo and Juliet. Swept away in her love for Tony, the heroine Maria sings this joyful, elegant song which captures her bliss and newfound sense of confidence:
“I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright! And I pity any girl who isn’t me tonight…
I feel stunning and entrancing, feel like running and dancing for joy, for I’m loved by a wonderful boy!”
Whether you use this little scarf while dancing the night away or simply to keep warm in a cool summer breeze, I hope you’ll always feel pretty wearing it.
