So yesterday I posted about my 80s John Hughes party. I think choosing the outfit took me longer than planning the party itself. I chose the movie Pretty in Pink as my inspiration. My criteria included a--using what's in my closet already (budget-friendly) and b--not dressed the same as everyone else. I also wanted to modernize it a bit. I love how Andie's character wears this black blazer in several scenes (mine is from the scene in the courtyard) and in a variety of different ways. I think I recreated this outfit pretty well, including the hat pin and pocket scarf. And who doesn't look cool in Ray Bans?
