Most people look to celebrities for fashion inspiration– is it weird that I look for inspiration through fictional characters?

Andy, from Pretty in Pink.  She dressed herself from thrift store findings and altered her own stuff.  She sewed her clothing.  She dressed different than the other girls at her school.

She’s my ‘it’ girl, and ever since I saw the film when I was younger I knew I wanted to be just like Andy.  I wanted to look like Andy.

I don’t think there has been a bigger influence on my fashion perspective than Andy– even if she didn’t exist beyond the VHS tape.
