INSPIRED BY: 'PRETTY IN PINK'



THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN.  I don't think I will ever be able to do anything for Jeremy that comes close to matching how huge a favour he has bestowed upon me by allowing me to dress him as Duckie.  Duckie!  The best-dressed male teen ever!

And in case you haven't seen Pretty In Pink (why not?!) this is what Duckie, played by Jon Cryer, looks like. 


Which explains why Jeremy is wearing a checked tweed blazer with the sleeves rolled up, a pair of his striped sports socks, cuffed trousers, white shoes, loads of rings, and round sunglasses.  And of course, most crucially, a quiff.  





The best scene in PIP is when Duckie dances to 'Try A Little Tenderness' in Iona's record shop. Jeremy tried to recreate some of those classic dance moves for me.


Hot damn.

I of course got to do my best Andie Walsh impression.  Which, obviously, involves a lot of pink.  The main look of hers I was trying to recreate was something in the middle of these two...



That Korea bomber jacket - so amazing.  She wears a lot of crochet, a lot of florals, a lot of pink, big socks and white boots.  And of course some sort of embellishment, always.  I couldn't find a Korea jacket, but I did find a green one with a massive 'A' on the back - for Andie!  







BEST DAY EVER.  

Oh and in case you're wondering, this is what it would look like if Duckie was a real life boy in 2014 and had a mobile phone.
