style evolution of "mean girl" movies!

like any other girl, i’m a sucker for a good cult classic girl movie. more specifically, “mean girl” movies!  through each generation, there is a classic girl film that stays with that generation and attracts other generations. for me, those movies were “the heathers” from the 80’s, “jawbreakers” from the 90’s, & “mean girls” from the 00’s. what i most love about each movie is that they represent their decade through the fashion choices so well.

the heathers (1988)

the heathers star wionna ryder, shannen doherty, & christian slater in this movie about the popular clique named the heathers. being that three of the four girls, were named “heather” it was only right. until, the other girl is the group named sawyer has enough of the mean girl ways of one of the heathers and…. well you have to watch the rest!

from the heathers, they give you suburban preppy 80’s. there is a lot of plaid, shoulder pads, & color!

jawbreaker (1999) 
jawbreaker is a classic 90’s rude girl movie. it involves three friends who accidentally kill another friend by gagging her with a jawbreaker. and it evolves into a crazy comedy that leaves you never wanting to go to high school with these girls. 

 jawbreakers gives you classic 90’s fashion with crop tops, floral prints, tube tops, and color. what i really love about jawbreakers is the maturing in the style of the main characters and the clear 60’s inspiration. the girls kept their style young and still in the 90’s, while showing 60’s vintage inspired pieces. they were classic cardigans with most looks, pedal pushers, and cat eye glasses.


   

Mean Girls (2004)
mean girls is the ultimate girl movie for the current generation. the movie stars lindsay lohan, rachel mcadam, & amanda seyfriend. lohan’s character, cat, moves back to the us from africa to start her public school life in high school. she sorta gets chosen to “the plastics” aka the popular group… which changes her life. 

 mean girls definitely gives you the new age of suburban fashion…aka the “fashion” for teenage white girls. the plastics were clearly inspired by the clueless age and try to be that of 2004. lots of tanks, juicy couture, mini skirts, cropped tops, basic designer bags, and the color pink!

Style Showcase: Clueless

I remember watching clueless when I was young with my mom I didn’t understand everything in the movie but the outfits always stook in my head. I even had the barbies that came out for the main characters, Cher & Dione. I definitely wanted Cher’s closet, actually I’ll still take that now! LOL

Me & my mom now quote different lines in the movie, “Omg! Our stock will plummet.” and the all time favorite,” Rollin’ with the homies!”… LOL 🙂 RIP to Brittany Murphy.

This People’s Magazine article describes Clueless the best:

Okay. So there’s this movie called Clueless, and it’s about this rich Betty (you know, a babe) named Cher (after that lady who does infomercials). Her mother died during routine liposuction, and now she is, like, furiously concerned with the welfare of others. Especially their fashion welfare.

Women’s Wear Daily calls Clueless the fashion movie of the year—and it majorly, fully earned the title. Costume designer Mona May studied European style big-time to come up with the 60 totally dope outfits that she created for star Alicia Silverstone. “The European thing is, have your own style,” says May, “and when the next trend comes, update without giving in.” In the movie, Silverstone specializes in makeovers. As if that’s her calling in real life! “I hate clothes, I hate fashion, I feel like a big frump,” she has insisted. Not that she was ever a Monet cute from afar, a mess close up), but during filming, “Alicia acquired some knowledge and taste,” says May.

That’s a serious accomplishment in young Hollywood, where everyone seems to squander their hottie potential by wearing the wrong clothes—duh! But that could be the point. “Nobody in their 40s is going to wear baggy pants, because they don’t get it,” says Clueless director Amy Heckerling. “You’re not supposed to get it. It’s not for you.”

The movie, explains May, “is about being yourself. Why not be daring? Why not wear white pumps after Labor Day?” Tscha! There’s a limit. How can young stars be such plods, overwhelming us with a sense of ickiness? Says May: “I think they all need my help.”

Clueless was just the great example of the style of the youth in the 90s..
Their plaid ensembles, the clunky heels, those Britney Spears “Baby One More Time” oxford heels, the baggy jeans, the real start of the skateboard grungy era….. All of that!

As If!!

Summer Fun!!
This summer my sisters Brandy, Bryce, & I decided to attend Screen on the Green in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. This week the movie that they were showing was Imitation of Life… GREAT MOVIE!!

Were a pretty fashionable bunch if I say so…
I wore a new romper I bought this week from Target along with this floppy hat to keep the sun off.
Brandy wore a super cute jersey material headband from Target with a Chanel t-shirt, and white high waisted shorts with matching Chanel tennis shoes.
Bryce stayed very colorful with a colorful beret from Target with a scribble tank from Victoria’s Secret, and dark denim high waisted shorts.
We had a nice little set up going on. I was relaxing while Bryce was reading and Brandy was knitting.


We even brought a cute little fashionable cooler for drinks.
Bryce & Brandy took a sec to do a little frisbee playing. FUN!!
Then it was sun down & time for the movie to start… SHHHHHH!!
Bowling,Movies, & Batteries…
This past Thursday I hung out my friend Tarrance again. We started the day off wanting to go bowling, but for the SECOND time we got turned away from the bowling alley. This time it was because someone rented out the ENTIRE bowling alley from 5:30-9:30…. I know. It’s sounds crazy.
Then we were on the go for new plans….

Tarrance was feeling himself that day…
Had to get one with the both of us. We ended up going to Fork & Screen in Buckhead to see I Am Number Four. Which was actually VERY good. I would recommend every go see it. After the movie, We went to Atlantic Station to get ice cream.
Also Tarrance got a new car.
Her name is “Bernadean”.


Here is Tarrance’s “Look of the day”:

Shirt- Walmart
Cardigan- Gap
Pants- Forever 21
Shoes: Aldo
Hat: Forever 21
His inspiration for the day was that we wake up and was feeling awesome. He wanted to dress up (for me), but didn’t want to over dress for the occassion.
Here’s my look:
Shirt- Nordstrom
Vest: Forever 21
Jeans- Forever 21
Shoes- Nike
If you notice, Tarrance & I were somewhat matching with our gray cardigans and vests.
We made a quick trip to Publix and sat down to eat our ice cream. It was a really nice night out.
Then, Tarrance dropped me off at home. I was in the house about 5 minutes when I got a text from him saying his car battery had died. So me and my dad hopped in the hummer and took the portable “jump” to him. After putting the cables on his battery for a minutes, the car started back up and we headed back home. We were just turning into our street when he called and said the car had died again….
We headed back down the street to see what we could do now. They spent a lot of time talking car language to each other while I looked on confused. After about 10 minutes, my dad let him take the portable jump with him and we headed back home. Let’s just say after all that, it was a long night for Tarrance, because he didn’t make it back home until about 3 am.
All just to hang with the trapped fashionista…
Bryce’s Birthday Pt. 1
So today my sister Bryce turned 14 years old today (November 16th). I decided to do her birthday celebration early.. So on Friday, I took Bryce and our other sister Brandy to see Megamind.
We went to the AMC “Fork & Screen” theater in Buckhead… where you can have a meal while you watch the movie.





As you can see, we had a mini photo shoot at the theater.
It was a great bonding experience and the movie was hilarious!! I would recommend everyone go see Megamind.. with our without the kids.
We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to start off Bryce’s birthday celebration.

Tomorrow I will be attending an “Advance Screening” of The Social Netowork (the facebook movie). SCAD gave out tickets to students and I got the last one. 🙂

I will be putting up my review of the movie tomorrow night.

Dinner and Movies night. . .
On Sunday, Me and two friends from work Julie & Claire went to eat and see Salt.

We went to Atlanta Bread Company and I had the yummiest sandwich… California Avocado Sandwich.
Love this pic.
Claire swore she wasn’t hungry… look at her food. LOL.



Overall, A fun night with my girls. Salt was great and dinner was yummy!
