Style Icon: Andie Walsh

I often see these posts and think to myself, "self, you need to do that." And that's because I have a good amount of style icons that I get my inspiration from on a regular basis. I especially get my inspiration from characters from films that I adore, actresses (old and new), or an artist of some sort. 

My first installation to this series is Andie Walsh. In case you need a refresher, Andie Walsh is Molly Ringwald's character from the 80's film, Pretty in Pink. When I was younger and feeling uninspired with my wardrobe, I would turn on "Pretty in Pink" and soak in all her incredible ensembles. Seriously, every one of them was a masterpiece. I remember the opening scene is of Andie picking out her outfit for the day and meticulously choosing each piece. She talked about getting things second-hand and sewing a lot of her clothes herself, and I always admired that... 


Okay, maybe the hat is a bit too 80's for me, but I'm totally diggin' it. 


And this look is totally back...



And Duckie's style... Yes.
