Film Fashion Friday: Reality Bites

That’s right ladies and gentleman, its the long awaited Film Fashion Friday. These are my favourite posts to write in every way because I get to share with you ALL of the things I love – fashion and movies!

I know I always stick to two eras, the 60’s and the 90’s, but ya know what –  I’m not actually sorry, because they are the best eras ever for both fashion and movies.

Today I am blessing you with the fashion from one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE MOVIES – Reality Bites.

It is the quintessential 90’s movie for young 20-somethings after college trying to do their thing in the world and not sell out to the man.. Yeah I guess it is a little pretentious but aren’t we all after a few glasses of wine?

This meme below pretty much sums up my entire year so far.

Also, does this hair cut look familiar?

It should because it’s my hair cut. The one I get repeatedly because it looks so good on Winona Ryder and I am repeatedly shocked when it doesn’t turn me into the spitting image of her.

Okay, onto the best bit –  the clothes.

Here they are!

Not to be outdone by the 90’s anti-teen queen (I’m referring to Winona, in case you were wondering), Vickie (Janeane Garofalo) is a lady after my own heart. Her love of the 60’s gives this movie that awesome extra little push. Want their outfits? (not the boys, I don’t think any boys actually read my blog besides Wayne and my Dad, so I’ll leave them out for now).

There are so many AMAZING 90’s floral maxi’s on Etsy at the moment, here is just one I found out of literally hundreds. I highly recommend clicking through the pictures and having a browse.

if these were in my size, they’d be gone already.

For Vicki I searched Green 60’s floral mini, again so many great dresses to choose from!

Someone please buy these before I cut my feet into bloody stubs to fit into them.

Ethan Hawke, get out the way! We’re trying to look at Vicki’s blue dress!!

How cute does Winona look for her date with Ben Stiller? DON’T BE A JERK ABOUT IT ETHAN!

Now you too can attempt to model yourself off 90’s Winona and be stumped when you still look like a frumpy red head, WITH THIS NEW CAR.. I mean this dress.



So check the movie out. Listen to the Violent Femmes and The Knack, call a psychic and read Sylvia Plath because, it’s all cool again – so why not??

Enjoy my pretties!

  1. This is pretty close to the bone as I’m wondering ‘what the hell am I accomplishing’ while I’m struggling to focus on my honours thesis paper 1.5 hours before I turn 23 years old.

    On the plus side, I still have an hour and a half to be something by the age of 23.

  2. hahah! you go girl!
    Please let me know how to do it when you discover it because I am flailing about like Olive Oil over here!
    And by the way, pretty sure being a university tutor at 22 is amazing and counts as being something big time !!

  3. You are Awesome. I can die happy now. 😉

  4. 😡 😡 (they are meant to be kissy faces, not sure if they come out like that though)

  5. haha I think if any of us figure ‘it’ out we’ll have to hold a big press conference to help everyone else!

    aww thanks you’re sweet! I’ve got to remember that sometimes

Tell me what you think?
