Pretty in Pink

Ok so this sketch is not so pretty nor is it ‘pretty in pink’! This sketch came to me late last night as I was thinking about the movie I watched this past weekend. There was something endearing about the movie even though the whole story is cheesy. But it was interesting time traveling back to the 80’s (can you believe that was almost 30 years ago!?) and seeing the teens in punk/outcast circles, elite pastel wearing circles; the popular and the fringe. Interesting to see how we worn our hair and dress ourselves in the 80’s – yikes! I was in single digits then but I definitely remember the puffy, reach-for-the-heavens, feathery hair; the legwarmers and the big owl-like eyeglasses. Thus the sketch of a girl in pink – a revisit to Pretty in Pink and the 80’s.
