"On Wednesday we wear pink." - Regina George
If you're between the ages of 12 and 30-something (or the mother of a girl in this age range) you're probably at least familiar with the movie Mean Girls, which is actually celebrating its 10th anniversary today!
While I was really generation Clueless, I did watch Mean Girls when it first came out (by then I was in college and a huge Rachel McAdams fan) and thought it was pretty amusing. I switched from private to public school for a few years in junior high and it was really that vicious of an atmosphere so I related to a lot of the scenarios they depicted! Believe it or not, there were literally days where the "popular" girls (who actually befriended me after my initial few months of horrible hazing) would all dress in theme. I kid you not! The head of the popular girl's group would tell us all "tomorrow we're wearing skirts and mary janes". Sure enough, the next day the popular girls would all be wearing skirts and mary janes. I've always marched to the beat of my own drum, however, so it wasn't long before I ended up with my own tight-knit group of eclectic friends that didn't feel the need to all buy the same Gap cardigan in various colors (seriously, this would happen in my school as well).
Side note: I've been watching Lindsay Lohan's docu-series on OWN the last few weeks and I've really gotten sucked in. She seems like she genuinely wants to recover, but it's hard for any addict let alone someone in the public eye. I hope she can get things together and go back to doing what she does best--making estrogen-charged movies filled with satire!
Many of the movie's fans are wearing pink today to celebrate Mean Girls' 10th anniversary. I thought it would be fun to create a wearable pink look to honor the movie that hit so close to home back when I was younger!
|I thought the 10th anniversary of Mean Girls merited some hot pink glitter!|
As you can see, this look is soft and wearable, but hopefully pink enough to pass even Regina George's standards!
