Everything Old is New Again

"Sweetheart, you can't buy the necessities of life with cookies..."


This weekend was filled with the beauty of classic movies, including Pulp Fiction - which I would NEVER recommend - Edward Scissorhands and Naked Gun - both of which I would highly recommend! While snuggled up and enjoying the retro laughter, I was also mesmerized by the fashion and decor that filled the screen. It inspired me to add a little more retro, a little more of the past into my modern life.

STARBURST WALL CLOCK

If you pay close attention, you will spot one of these clocks in certain scenes of That 70's Show. Not only will it immediately be a conversation piece, but it's practical and neutral - perfect for almost every room. I just love the design, modern yet retro and so ready to come back in style. Plus, on the retroplanet website, the price is under $40!


TOM FORD PENELOPE SUNGLASSES

Kathy Baker plays Joyce, the flirty neighbour, in Edward Scissorhands and while her outfit choices are questionable, she does sport some amazing shades. The large frames and unique hue are very similar to the Penelope, created by Tom Ford. They are simple in design, but these sunglasses do not require orange florals to make a statement.


OFF THE SHOULDER

Naked Gun was without a doubt a movie from the height of the 1990s - huge hair, puffy sleeves and suits without great tailoring. Yet, Priscilla Presley sported a dress which showed off her shoulders - an underrated fashion statement. Whether a shirt or dress, exposing the shoulders can be subtly sexy and extremely feminine. Miss Presley looked stunning and inspired me to try the same.


BLUNT BOB W. BANGS

While Pulp Fiction was an ultra strange storyline and did not captivate my mind whatsoever, Uma Thurman played an extremely beautiful character with a haircut that is slowly becoming popular. The blunt bob, complete with bangs is a great way to make a statement without going wild. Uma had dark, straight hair in the movie, but this style looks good with any colour or texture. Plus, it's easy to style and quick to wash!


AMERICANA DECOR

The homes of each character in Edward Scissorhands were decorated with colour, style and personality. Whether I was stepping into the pink kitchen of Joyce or the family room of Peg, my eyes were in for a treat. Although velour couches and pink countertops should definitely stay a thing of the past, wall sculptures, well manicured lawns, glass tree ornaments and bold colours could definitely have their place in the modern age.


Decades of the past have played a huge role in the fashion, decor and lifestyle of today. This is why I truly believe that while some things went out of a style for a clear reason, others were forgotten gems. It is so fun to watch films that were created during my early years and find new ways to bring back the past, making it present.
