I graduated from high school in 1985 and college in 1989.....there I have come clean!
John Hughes movies defined my high school and college years, especially those starring Molly Ringwald.
John Hughes died suddenly of a heart attack last week, at the young age of 59.
This past week, I rented a few of my favorite John Hughes films and took a walk down memory lane........
Pretty in Pink is my favorite.
Even though I was a cheerleader in high school and probably part of "richies", my adult self is probably more like Andie, the character played by Molly Ringwald.
Andie gave all of us girls hope that the cute rich guy would sweep us off our feet and love us with our quirks and all.
As an adult watching this movie, I fell in love with Andie's "vintage" style wardrobe and even her bedroom - the set designers picked a great vintage look complete with a tole painted twin bed and crocheted linens. It is look that could easily translate to an current Anthropologie look!
Thank you Mr. John Hughes. You gave us so many characters to root for, characters that we saw ourselves in, flaws and all. What a great kick it was to revisit my 17 year old self this week when I watched my fav's.
