To start off, Secret Admirer is one of my favourite 80's films and I hate how it's so unheard of with people my age, whereas other popular 80's films like The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles are the first that come to mind. While Molly Ringwald's typical browny-pinky coloured clothing looked good on her and blah blah, I am just obsessed with other crazier 80's fashions that were worn by the characters in Secret Admirer - including the boys!
Kelly's charater, 'Deborah Anne Fimple' wears: a shiny purple bodysuit, pointy ankle boots, messy hair up-do's, boob-accentuating outfits, triangle shaped PURSES ANYONE!?!
The main boy Michael just wears simple clothes that were normal for the time but he doesn't even need wacky clothes because his personality is just a crack-up, one of the many reason you should watch this movie if you haven't seen it already! Kelly's father is also quite hilarious and some of the things he says... hahaha
So anyway, this morning I had my hair up already messy and was wearing a plain singlet and harem pants when i thought, HEY I look like Kelly Preston when she goes on that disastrous date with Michael! (and all she talks about is what she bought and what shops she walked 'miles' to)
Here's some pictures:

I just added a necklace from Colette, and some silver/grey sequin pointy-toe heels that I've had for ages. I should have gotten a bag and some fingerless-stocking gloves with layers of bracelets, while I was at it, but I kinda forgot what she was wearing.

So I'm at work today, Target, and out the back about to bring up the clothes from Lay-by only to find this hidden gem in the pile of really-old-clothes-that-still-have-the-tag-on from a Grazia for Hot Options range from a few years back. I scan it thinking it'll still be the $25, only it's $2.40!!! (With my staff discount) but it used to retail for $79 (who the hell would buy it for that anyway) but it means it must be reeeally old. So I hear bomber jackets are coming back in anyway, and with a dark silk looking one like this I think I could actually pull it off!
