31 Aug Pretty in Pink: Vintage Fashion
“May I admire you again today? This is a really volcanic ensemble you’re wearing, it’s really marvellous!” – Duckie. Pretty in Pink, 1986.
OK. I’m a die-hard Pretty in Pink movie fan.
This week I made my daughter indulge me by watching Pretty in Pink together (it’s 30 years-old this year!).
And I realised – this is where it all started. My love for vintage. And vintage-style. Seeing this movie at 13 years-old left me craving silk and lace vintage dresses in pastel pink shades, crochet tops, Psychedelic Furs vinyl records, a pink vintage car, ray-ban’s and a boyfriend called Blane (hormones, huh?).
My girlfriends and I became vintage-obsessed. We’d spend every Saturday morning going to markets, garage sales and op shops to get the Molly Ringwald look.
So, today’s blog is dedicated to Andie, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. And all things pretty in pink.
