Last week was long, so I was pretty exhausted--and pretty lame--on Friday night. After a quick double date in the city and a stop off at Old Navy to buy my other half some cheap golf clothes, I landed on the couch at 10pm, ready to pass out.
Of course, cable sucked me in--and out of a lovely lull. Pretty Woman, one of my all-time favorite movies, was on. So I decided to commit to watching the entire thing.
What I realized, as Vivian stomped divots at the polo match, was that I had inadvertently replicated her wardrobe in my own closet. Here's what I found on my own hangers--and around the Internet.
(Sadly, nothing modern comes even close to matching that red dress in beauty or style.)
The Peach Suit
I bought this linen Stella McCartney blazer at a sample sale last summer, as well as a pair of matching pinky-peach linen shorts. I wear it with a white t-shirt and taupe flats or heels--the modern version of Vivian's silk ensemble.
The Polka Dot Dress
Nothing will ever compare the brown and cream polka dot number Vivian wore to the polo match. But my adorable H&M style evokes a similar vibe. I paid $25 for it at the beginning of the spring.
The Black Lace Cocktail Dress Most people simply remember the slippery escargot from this scene, but I adore this black dress. Preen makes a lace body-con number that'll flatter similarly.
The Tie Dye Skirt
This tight skirt may have looked tarty then, but not now--especially since Joie's version is less form-fitting. You could even wear it like Vivian did--with a white button down shirt blouse out.
The High Waisted, Pegged Leg Jeans
I love Julia Robert's look in the last scene of the movie--white t-shirt, black blazer and plain ol' mom jeans. (Unfortunately, there aren't any stills from the film that really show them off.) You probably already own the blazer and the tee, so maybe it's time to suck it up and buy a pair of pegged-leg denim. Acne's version is decidedly sexier than the '80s style.
