I don't know if anyone else has the fantasy of being a character in a 1980s romance film, but I do. I would gladly be Molly Ringwald in any of her covetable roles (Sixteen Candles anyone?) As much as I love every John Hughes film, Cameron Crowe's Say Anything is by far my favorite teen romance from the 80s. Set in Seattle, Washington, the film follows Lloyd Duber (John Cusack) and his relationship with valedictorian Diane Court (lone Skye). The film's most iconic scene takes place near the end of the film. Lloyd stands outside of Diane's bedroom window holding a boombox over his head while playing Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes." Swoon. I would love to be Diane in this scene.
Channeling my love for 1980s teen romance films, I wore a pair of high-waisted Calvin Klein shorts, my favorite polka dot shirt, and yellow accessories. Matty calls this outfit my "Tiffany ensemble" since it is reminiscent of the teen pop star's fashion choices. If only I were in my twenties in the 1980s.
And this is the closest you will ever see me to wearing a pair of pants.
