You Inspire Me

And by you, I don't just mean my favorite movie of all time, Troop Beverly Hills, I mean you too, readers. With out you, I'd be so lost and bored and and when my tummy hurts, it would hurt ten times worse. What I mean to say is, thank you so much for your sweet and insightful comments on yesterday's post. They kept rolling in all day, and each time I'd have a moment of tummy trouble I'd read another one of your sweet notes and it just kept me going. I love that you understand me. Hopefully, you and I also share some other similarities, such as loving 80's movies with still-relevant fashion inspiration. This movie inspires me to no end, I mean, where would khaki be today with out it?

Clearly, fellow designer Chloé also seems to have been inspired by the movie for the Spring Summer 2010 Collection. At least it seems that way to me. If you need further proof, check out this photo from the Sp/Su '10 Collection:

And then watch the first 3 1/2 minutes of this chapter of the movie. Don't you just swoon when Shelly Long says, "Not that bad? Except for the color's wrong, the collar's wrong, the material's a nightmare from hell, it's cut badly, it itches and it's not me...but all that can be fixed!" I often think those very same things.

Doesn't that just bring back memories? If there's a chance you haven't seen this movie: 1.) You really shouldn't be reading this blog (haha...just kidding!) 2.) Go get yourself a copy ASAP. This movie defined the 80's for me. And you can actually watch the whole thing here on YouTube! You are welcome.

Now, go on, inspire someone else, you've already done your due diligence here for the day!


  1. I'm way backed up on comments this week and I'm trying to play catch up today.. I usually start by the oldest blog and work my way up but I saw this picture and post (the top most recent post on my roll today)and absolutely HAD to comment. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!!!! It makes me smile just talking about it.
    Great post.

    Also that pic of the "new" kahki, is awesome. I wish I could wear leggings like that over my shoes. But I would look stupid I think. But I really want to!!!!

  2. You make me smile.
    You're quite the inspiration yourself, toots!

  3. this is amazing .. Shelley Long is incredible and I would love to rock that girlscout outfit.

  4. Hi Erin, sorry I missed the comments on the tummy follow up post. Anyway girl, I know how it is. 100%. I am totally on your wavelenght and yes it can be such frustrating detective work to get to the bottom of it all.

    Your farm box...holy moly girl this was the time of yr in San diego where my csa box was busting! loose! at the seams w/ amamzing stuff. Soooo envious :)


  5. I loved that movie! Especially seeing it after "The Shining," with Shelley Long playing someone whose hubby isn't trying to kill her! I have to walk by Bergdorf's every day to get to and from work, and I pass the Chloe display... I die a little bit each time.

    And yes, let's live in the same city and eat the same things and run together and make merry all the time!

  6. Beverly Hills what a thrill! Beverly Hills what a thrill! I was OBSESSED with this movie when I was a kid. Loved it! I think I found my soul sister simply by loving this movie!

  7. This Fan Banner for the New Orleans Saint Fan is a great way to show the neighbors who you're rooting for on gameday! This pleated fan bunting is made of 100% nylon, measures a 27"x57" in size, and has three metal grommets along the top header for easy hanging. The NFL team colored panels are ruffled and the insignias are embroidered into our New Orleans Saint Fan Banner which results in a durable and quality banner.dallas cowboys american flag
