(Also, I am always up for further film fashspiration - ugh, did I really just say that? Sorry! - so as ever, recommendations are appreciated. Or better yet - hit me with your own top-fives? I always have room in my life for more fandoms.)
Sarah in Labyrinth
All hail Labyrinth. I abso-bloody-lutely love this film. I like a girl who looks comfortable in jeans, but I also really appreciate the puffy sleeves and waistcoat thing she has going on. Artist-poet-drama student vibes.
Enid in Ghost World
Yeah, I know, me and every other alt girl ever. But what's not to love about Enid? I particularly love her impressive collection of patterned vintage bathrobes. And that green bob. Be still, my heart.
Okay, so this movie might actually have been the weirdest thing I've seen lately, and I kind of love/hate the character of Tank Girl (she kicks butt, and I always like that in a girl, but on the other hand, she is a bit of an annoying loudmouth. Although Lori Petty's voice equals serious heart-eyes), but there's something about shaven heads and ripped-up clothing that will forever appeal to me. To be fair, though, the main thing I want to take from this character and apply to my own wardrobe is the complete lack of fucks given.
Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter
My personal dress sense is not as, um, out there as Luna's, but I have great appreciation for her crazy earrings and those cute purple overall/dungaree things (as seen in the basement of Malfoy Manor, Deathly Hallows). I am ever on the search for the perfect pair of dungarees, but I have yet to find some that don't make me look like Andy Pandy gone seriously wrong.
