In other news, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention something about the passing of one of my beloved icons: John Hughes. It's been quite a somber summer, with him gone along with Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson... the entertainment and fashion world are hurting! I was a fan of Michael Jackson's music, though not his antics, and the sweet style Farrah rocked in the seventies, but writer John Hughes was especially near and dear to my heart. Like my fellow eighties babies, I grew up with his films, from the hilarious and adorable Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink to my favorite angsty-teen flick of all time, The Breakfast Club, and of course his many family-friendly comedies: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone, The Great Outdoors, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, and so many more. His sweetly funny films have had a profound impact on my life... Not to mention my fashion sense!Here is my little tribute, all dressed up like an eighties era Hughes-muse...Dress: Pink, Victoria's Secret
Layering tank: Thrifted
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft
Ballet flats: Old Navy
Headband: No idea, but I wore it to my junior prom!
True story: these pictures are actually from last week. I wore this and took these photos with no idea that John Hughes had died (it might have been a day or two before). Their resemblance to any characters or fashions in his films is purely coincidental (though I did call this my "Breakfast Club" look). Well, that's all. But hey, wait, what are you still doing here? The blog post's over. You can go home now! What? You're already home. Ok, geez. Then get off the computer already and go outside! Do something! Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and take a look around once in a while, you could miss it. ;)
