Strange Ways



I could barely contain my excitement when I found out that The Craft was playing at the Castro theater last night. In middle school, I was obsessed with Sarah Bailey, the film's leading lady. Having just moved from San Francisco to Los Angles, Sarah enrolls in a Catholic school but has trouble fitting in. She befriends a group of three misfit girls and becomes the fourth member of their witches coven. Turmoil ensues when some of the girls use magic for their own personal gain. But you will have to watch the movie to find out all of the details. I don't want to give anything away!

In honor of my sixth grade obsession, my outfit is inspired by Sarah's quintessential 1990s style. I added some contemporary touches to the ensemble, such as this reconstructed mini dress and my black booties. I had to wear my tiger's eye pendant in the hopes of casting some spells after the movie. We'll see if those spells work out. I don't think I have Sarah's hidden magical powers....

Jacket: 1970's Vintage

Your vintage looks so fresh here. You know what they say, what's old is new again. Nice post! Gotta love "The Craft" for 90's/witchy fashion inspiration.

Em :

You look really great! Love how you styled the whole look. I had totally forgotten about that movie--it does have some fun 90s fashion--good times. I love natural gem jewelry--glad it's making a comeback.

Milla :

The Craft is awesome, it's funny how some movies just become part of your memories of the era... I love how you put together a theme outfit. Totally guilty of doing that at times. You look very appropriately dressed and gorgeous.

Jenni :

I love "The Craft"! I love how you interpreted it! That floral dress is perfect!

Myriam S :

That dress is so rad, it's pretty difficult finding vintage florals that aren't fugly. And! You've perfectly captured the essence of "The Craft."

Love love love!

I've never seen the movie, I'm going to see if it is available on Netflix!

Adorable outfit, I like that you dressed 90s in honor of the film. Good work on reconstructing the dress too!

Meghan :

wow I might need to see if The Craft is on netflix! I love the photo you posted, the clothes! The sunglasses!
I love that movie as well, though for some reason I was more obsessed with Fairuza Balk and her enormous mouth (I wonder what happened to her?). Sarah Bailey's nose is tiny and cute which of course I can't relate too ;)

You look way better in your little flowery dress and boots

Annebeth :

Maycie (pending new last name) :

Loved The Craft. My cousin would spend the night every weekend and we would watch it. So embarrassed to say, but we even got a few girlfriends together to play "light as a feather stiff as board". I know, I know. Creepy right? Those were the days...

Great post.
