the girl in the movie

This is a really old photo of me,
in my old back yard.
I miss this pink blouse.
I think I was trying to imitate  Molly Ringwald .
Andie, from Pretty In Pink,
is one of my fave movie characters. 
  I've lost count of how many times,
I've watched this movie.

Andie: I just want them to know
 that they didn't break me.

Andie:Well, I loved her, too, you know. 
She just didn't love us back.

 Iona:Would have been a fairy tale if my date hadn't been the only one there with a...wife and two kids.
 Duckie: You know what an older women does for me? 
Iona: Changes your diapers? 
: Touché.

I'm off like a dirty shirt. 
Andie:You know what the really sad thing is? 
I bet the people that live there 
don't think it's half as pretty as I do.
 Andie: Were you here long? 
Duckie: No, no! Three, four... hours. 
It must be, like, a hormone thing. Every song is making me sick.
 Iona:You could say that life itself, is a stupid tradition.
Duckie: This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous! 
Duckie: Good Morning! Welcome to another day of higher education! 
Steff: You know, I've been out with a lot of girls at this school. I don't see what makes you so different. 
Andie: Well, I have taste. 
Andie: I don't know what I'm doing! 
Iona: Wishful make-upping! 
Iona: You know every time you go to the john,
you lose IQ points!

This is an actual song from the movie, that was NOT on the soundtrack. I once asked my best friend to search for the CD as a present. She did, but there were only 2 good songs on it. :P


..."You lost a lot when you lost me 
Six paperback books and a dying tree
A looking glass and a diamond ring
You lost me and you lost some dreams...
Two blankets and a bookshelf piece
A picture frame and a couple keys
Stole a couple of dollars that I won't see
You lost a lot when you lost me.

You lost my face, you lost my laugh

and then you lost my confidence

She loves me, she loves me not

Show this piggie the way home" 


  1. teddi, i love molly ringwald, too! great photo of you! : )

  2. Teddi, I love this post darling. I loved that movie too. I love Molly and her style is still in today. I found the vcr tape pretty in pink a year ago and I have it on my shelf in my spare room. It is a classic in my book. I am inspired to do an outit post similar now. Thank you! Sincerely dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  3. you do look like her too. sweet! dawn xo

  4. hahaha, you really look like molly in that first photo teddi! that's so crazy!

    have a great weekend my dear!

  5. You look awesome! Love the dark hair that you have now though!

  6. Your outfit is spot on! I love it! Pretty in Pink is my favourite movie of all time! I just love Andie and her style! That one pair of floral jeans she wear I am in love with! Ive been searching for something similar forever. I also can help but adore duckie. I wish he were my best friend.

  7. You do somewhat look like Molly in the first pic! My man tells me I look like her all the time (I don't see it, maybe the hair colour?) Pretty in pink- and you are!

  8. I'm a HUGE Molly Ringwald fan... and I could tell right away that's the look you were going for. Pretty in Pink is so amazing. I've seen it a zillion times too. I love the lines.

  9. you were blond!
    And look a lot like that artist from pretty in pink!

    The Sweetest Escape 

  10. You did a pretty good job at matching the Ringwald look from Pretty in Pink.

    I'm surprised she kinda faded in popularity and acting after the 80's. The Breakfast Club is easily one of my favorite movies.

  11. Teddi this is a awesome post! Molly's style is sooo cool and the film is such a good source of inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Teddi, I really admire you in digging for photos of movies or tv shows which would serve as your outfit inspirations! that's just so awesome! ^_^
