movie inspiration: Modern Girls
For this installment of movie inspiration it's Modern Girls (1986) - Virginia Madsen, Daphne Zuniga and friends go clubbing in Hollywood. Not much on plot, but some of the best 80s styling and my all-time favorite interiors. It doesn't hurt that I had half of this stuff...
like that pink radio.
One day I am going to paint a Lichtenstein-esque mural over my bed. It has to be.
If anyone ever finds one of these cat clocks you'll hook me up, right?
sooo much pink
I love her collection of Archies and Barbie magazines. I had stacks of that junk.
OK best livingroom, best pastel fabric-feather boa, and yeah, I had a plastic rock purse.
apparently in the 80s you could get your head tattooed in the club
that boa again. Golly I have always wanted that thing. I need to figure out how to make it.
of course this has a fuzzy leopard interior
everyone in the clubs is wearing vintage. Virginia Madsen wears this perfect 20s via the 80s beaded flapper-style dress throughout. Also, she has my all-time favorite hair - it's actually her hair in Candyman has always been my favorite, but that's for another post. If I could get a perm to do that I would so be there.
and one last shot of that livingroom
Flamingo curtains, randomly scattered neon noodles and a life-size hot pink metal palm tree. It doesn't get any better. And that little pink round-back chair to the left.. it has bowling balls for feet on its 3 legs. Best ever. God the 80s looked good.
