"I have a really low tolerance for dehydration."

Ooooh, pictures. Another reference from another brat pack movie. You know, it's sort of difficult pulling a one liner from the breakfast club, harder than I would have thought. Anyway, here are the pictures of my Ringwald inspired ensemble. I saw this shirt at the gap and it just made me think of that outfit. I like the cowl neck better than the straight v and it's jersey not a blouse...but the color is perfect. The skirt is ancient, a well cut high waisted corduroy skirt I got from the limited. It hits just above the calf and it has a perfect a-line/bell, a better shape for girls chubbier than Molly Ringwald. The boots aren't very much like Claire's at all, no laces and more of a heel. I bought them a few weeks ago at Aldo and I love them. I love the color, they're comfy and I think they're perfect.

Here is a close-up of the belts. I actually have a belt almost like hers but it doesn't match the boots. These two are much closer in color but I'm not sure which one to go with...advice is welcome. I've no idea what I'll wear for jewelry, probably more pearls. I've got quite a supply. I cleared away the packing debris to take the picture but I've obviously not made my bed. I'm making quite a mess and I have about four bags. If I was flying I'd be screwed.

That outfit is SO Claire.

I intended to rattle off several one-liners from The Breakfast Club, but I'm drawing a blank. How can that be? I would've sworn I knew every word by heart.

The only line I know is the one about bitch get me a pot pie. But maybe it isn't bitch and maybe its a sandwich.

you so successfully pulled off the Claire look - I knew what it was without having to read it!

Bitch, get me a turkey pot pie! That would have worked too, most of them seem to need context.

I was really excited about the claireness of it, I hope someone at the wedding gets the reference.

Hi Katie, I sent you an email but just in case...I got that shirt at the Gap on clearance. Actually, I bought it at full price and then found it on clearance for 12 bucks then I returned the original because I really am that OCD. You might still be able to find it, this was only about two weeks ago. Try the website! and Good Luck!
