Inspiration: Pretty in Pink

I have to admit I am such a film geek. I love old movies dating from silent movies in the early 1900's, the likes of the Ladykillers and Love is a many-splendored thing from the 1950's right through to the 1980's (Breakfast Club!).
I must say my favourite film of all time is Pretty in Pink. I could watch it over and over Duckie is the star of the show, he has such style and I love the way he talks. When I first watched it, I thought he was Matthew Broderick, and I bought all of Matthew Brodericks films, only to find out that it was Jon Cryer!
Anyway, I think the outfits are just fantastic! I love the way Angie (Molly Ringwald) dresses, in loads of pink and floral patterns.

She makes all her own clothes too, which has really inspired me to get back to the sewing machine with all those lovely fabrics I've been collecting for a while. I'm really excited actually. College finishes in two weeks and then I have all the time in the world to make lovely things, to sort through everything and finally put stuff onto Etsy!


  1. Have you seen the film? It's just brilliant. I am 100% in love with Duckie and his style. ohhh xo

  2. Me too, me too. Andie was my first fashion muse ever.

    Your blog is wonderful, by the way. I learned about it via Clever Nettle.
    Your topics and photos are magnificent!

    Just added you to Bloglovin.

  3. Pugly feet: Yes, Andie is gorgeous! I love the opening scene with her dressing!
    Thankyou! The things she sent were gorgeous!
