Pretty in Pink




Sigh... John Hughes, you are missed. Although flawed, there really is nothing like a good 80s Brat Pack film. I don't think I could pick an actual favorite, but Molly Ringwald's character, Andie, in Pretty in Pink was definitely an Idol for me. I grew up reconstructing used and vintage clothing, so I had a special place in my heart for her New Wave craftster skills. Plus, how cool was Annie Potts as Iona in this movie?!?!

So when I decided to to a prom photo shoot with bloggers Wild as a Mink, Showgirl Godzilla and Idee Geniale, I had to have a Pretty in Pink look! What do you think - Would you wear these dresses as is, or would you remake them into something completely different?

Pretty in Pink!!!! My favorite part of that movie is that their budget obviously did not include hiring a real illustrator as Andy's stand-in "hands" when she sits down to sketch out her prom dress ideas. I mean, they don't even show her face, its just her hands sketching away in the shot...yet in the end, its some of the most primary fashion sketches I've ever seen. It makes me laugh actually, and I always bring this point up everytime I see that scene. So maybe we should have a John Hughes movie night sometime soon-just to see if I point this out when we watch Pretty in Pink. But can I just tell you how much I hate DUcky...I even hate him now in Two and a Half Men--YUCK, I just don't like that dude.

I think you guys at DRV are KINDA geniuses. These are my very favorite bloggers, and that you have them model your stuff is beyond smart. Great marketing. Great stuff, great shop, great blog. Nuff said.

So happy to meet you! Yes that shirt is pretty fantastic and came exactly that way. I can sew, but I usually try to not make more work for myself! Been off my game as far as listing and selling goes the past couple months since being a one girl rodeo is tough! Do you have a team, or is it just you working with models? All of that coordination must take some time! I noticed you are also a part of some great vintage seller groups. How is it working out for you? It must feel nice to sort of band together! Anyhoo, congratulations on all the support you have been getting from such amazing blog girls, and to the success of your shop. Its always nice to meet a fellow vintage lover! If I ever find myself back in NY I would love to see your studio! It sounds like a dream come true!
