Channelling Blane from Pretty In Pink

Pretty in Pink: Blane, Andie & Ducky. Obviously.

Remember the John Hughes era in the 80’s where it was a big deal, rich kids vs. poor kids.  James Spader and Andrew McCarthy always portrayed a variation on the same privileged jerk with a trustfund.  Even still, you couldn’t resist swooning every time Blane came onscreen.  Spoiler Alert (for you kids born in the 90’s):  He only slightly redeemed himself by finally owed up to being an @sshole to Andie.  I mean, I don’t know about you but a guy who is too embarrassed to take you to Prom because of his friends?!?  There is only one word: Lametown.  My ideal version, a Blane 2.0 if you will, would have a stronger backbone but I suppose then there would be no Pretty In Pink

What these boys of old money had in common were the ubiquitous blazer, tousled just rode my daddy’s Porsche-hair and Conneticut prepster style.  Allow me to suggest some spring fashions and other accoutrements to bag a Blane. 

Get noticed by the rich kids in this Madewell Film School Blazer

Options! Wear it 'as if' you had a Blane (the secret). Silence & Noise Boyfriend Blazer

Sex it up: Loving the lightweight fabric and assymetrical hem on this Sparkle & Fade Crinkle Chiffon blouse

Douse yourself in Lavanila. Vanilla is known as a natural aphrodisiac and mood enhancer. Trust.
