I watched Reality Bites last week. I was a grunge girl in my teens and I still listen to that music and dream of Eddie Vedder falling in love with me. So, I thought I would watch one of the definitive 'generation x' films again.
As always, I check out the costumes in films. In RB I totally love her flat mate, Vickie, played by the awesome Janeane Garofalo. I love the short short fringe and the kooky clothes. Winona wears typical grunge clobber, long shapeless dresses, not much to remember, but the scene I do love is when she's in the red jersey vest top and sunglasses. It reminds me how great a pop of red really is, especially on brunettes, and I'm going to make sure I incorporate some more into my projects.
On the Winona note, I'm thinking more Heathers for inspiration. I love the preppy stuck up outfits they wear especially the shirts with the peter pan collars and either a necklace or brooch pinned to the top button. I'm thinking that would blend well with the current trend of sleeveless shirts, but with autumn coming up, it might not be such a good idea. Anyway, I love this photo, and here is my inspiration for today.
What's your favourite Winona look?
