I often find myself remembering how I first got into this whole fashion thing...it was many years ago and it is actually a really stupid story. You see, I loved Saved by the Bell, f-ing LOVED it. This is where I harbored my love for Lisa Turtle, the fashionable gossipy one, who after graduating from Bayside High, went on to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Get out of town! I go there toooooo.
Besides Lisa Turtle, I loved Andie Walsh. Ya'll know whoooo. Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink! She and I not only shared a love of being fashionable and crafty, but also our names (Andie/Andi) and our great love for New Wave music. Also, our boyfriends had similar names..Blane..Blaise..same thing!
I remember the epic scene when she was making that pink prom dress. The toughest New Order song was blasting, the camera was zoomed in, catching all the seams being ripped, stitches being sewed, pearls and beads being attached. Molly Ringwald was the shiiiiit.
The other great thing about this movie? Duckie was THE greatest. I wish he was my friend.
