A Kiss from the Nineties

No no. Just that plain choker you are wearing isn’t enough to feel the vibe. I was raised during the time when Mom carried her big mobile phone around, Britney was the princess and Cher was the style icon, yes that’s my kind of nineties! ♡ Here is my super nostalgic 90s playlist, I will not even say these songs are my guilty pleasure ’cause they’re always my favorite since the cassettes era! :-)

A Little Bit of Pink and Wine

When I was young my mom used to set this one and only wardrobe rule which is NEVER to wear pink with red, ever. So I got a habit of separating the two colours no matter what. For example I always thought that it’s a disaster to combine pink top and red skirt together, or if I wear red lips I will never wear something pink to go with it. But I later realised that a little bit of them both could be nice too, it just all depends on the tone you choose.
I discovered a little bit of wine/oxblood red and pastel pink could simply get along, during the time I got dark red gel manicure, so I couldn’t remove them when I wanted to spend my day thinking pastel. Sometimes extremely bright red and pink (like my Marimekko purse) is also a lovely mixture. Maybe I should try matching pink top and red skirt together again (in bigger size now of course that time I was only 7).

Wear That Film: Valley Girl (1983)

After being sick at home yesterday I ended up watching Valley Girl (1983) and when I finished, I couldn’t help setting today’s outfit all pink and purply! Here’s my kind of Valley Girl look according to my wardrobe.

(Forever21 ‘Heart Break City’ purple sweater, Polly Pockets pink cassette player, ‘First Kiss’ and ‘Kiss Me’ heart earrings, Playhound Eyewear pink round Sunglasses with neck strap from ☆☆, Kate Spade #handsomestranger clutch with xmagic glitter heart brooch, Kate Spade iPhone5 case, OPI ‘Ate Berries in the Canaries’.)

 

Valley Girl is the latest addition to my ‘movies with costumes I’d want in my closet’ list. They got it from the beginning until the end; the style, the colors, the music, the plot that is predictable yet still amusing. Even got me inspired to write my upcoming The Nail Spell column for Cheeze Magazine no.133 (which I will be posting that in few weeks, after the issue’s out). The movie reminds me of a materialistic 80s version Barbie Doll, who’s dumping Ken for someone with totally different lifestyle and all her friends kept convincing her to go back to Ken even though he is a douchebag.

The movie itself is a typical good girl meets bad boy with a little bit of Romeo and Juliet kind of love. But the parents have nothing to do with it, in fact the dad plays quite funny role in the film, with his passionate hippy attitude.

Other things I love about the film is probably the setup of those girly scenes, especially the girls’ rooms, the wallpapers, the pastels, the polkadots, the asian souvenirs (Japanese fans and Chinese umbrella) and how they all go so well with the rest of the furnitures/costumes.

I also love how Julie’s one-piece bathing suit, sunglasses and neck strap are all bright red. It’s sad you rarely see people using neck straps for shades these days…

Now you see why their clothes makes me wish I was growing up in the 80s
