Inspiring Style: A Breakfast Club Princess or a Basket Case?

7/26/2013

Remember the post I did last week about Betty and Veronica? Well now I'm doing it again, but now with one of my favorite movies of all time: The Breakfast Club. Please tell me that you've seen this cinematic delight before? It's from the '80s and it features a lot of the brat pack stars of the day who ruled the theaters with this movie and others like, Sixteen Candles, St. Elmo's Fire, etc.The Breakfast Club is about five high school teens who spend the entire day in detention and realize that although their labels make them seem different, they are really more alike than they would have thought. Molly Ringwald plays Claire--the rich girl, it-girl while Ally Sheedy encapsulates the role of Allison--the weirdo freak.

So tell me, do you relate to the style of Molly Ringwald's Princess or Ally Sheedy's Basket Case?

"You see us as you want to see us. In the simplest terms; in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...and an athlete...and a basket case...a princess...and a criminal."

  1. I was 6 when this movie came out, i loved it!! I think I've watched it every year since then too. It never gets old. I would put myself more as The Basket Case. The princess never really suited me. Such a classic movie!! Have a great weekend x

  6. The Breakfast Club is one of my all time favourites, it's such an 80s classic. I love the first set, but definitely The Basket Case maxi and scarf is calling my name. Enjoy the w/e. :)

  18. Okay, seriously, I like these kinds of posts SO much! Such a great idea (I wish I had thought of it)!! I am definitely more of the basket-case here, Molly Ringwald is just way too girly for me!

  20. this is interesting to watch, very similar to the looks of the Archie team.

  21. These posts have been so much fun! I don't know if I am either girl really, but there are elements I like from both looks. I think I would pick the basketcase sans the scarf--- I don't really wear skulls....

  22. I love this so much!! Thanks for posting this. I've always thought it'd be such a great idea to use a movie as style inspiration.

    Definitely the princess, haha. Every time I watch the movie, I'm like I want those boots!
