Three Reasons why we LOVE Romy and Michelle from the hit film:
1. To them fashion is everything
2. They rocked those PVC dresses
3. They like, totally invented the Post It
What's it all about? These two girls weren't popular at school and pretended to be successful business women at their high school reunion, when in actual fact they had a flair for fashion. Our fave moment has to be the iconic scene when the girls strut through the dance floor with their vibrant, dynamic, one of a kind dresses. The 'it' crowd think they are ridiculous, but an editor from Vogue steps in and tells them their dresses have 'nice lines and a fun, frisky use of colour'. The girls then end up opening their own boutique.
Inspired by the film, Blogger Frey from feathersandbelles.com created and styled up her custom made Rock On Ruby Bodysuit! Frey created her own bodysuit online and chose the phrase: 'I'm the Mary and you're the Rhoda' (Classic film quote from Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion).
BODYSUIT - Rock On Ruby - SHORTS: Topshop mom shorts
FLANNEL SHIRT: Pacsun - MULES: asos - ACCESSORIES: Vintage belt and headscarf hand me downs
The point of this quote suggests the concept of the swan and the ugly duckling. However, Frey chose this to show that it's not a bad thing to be the Mary OR the Rhoda! It worked for Romy and Michelle, so rock it and express yourself - stand out from the crowd! Isnt that what fashion is all about? With the role of Bloggers becoming more and more important in the Fashion Industry, it is so much easier to see individual style and put your own stamp on high street outfits..
90s fashion has made a huge come back and other films like Clueless and Mean girls are having a big impact on the high street. Our statement slogan t-shirts, crop tops, jumpers and body suits are great foradding to your #OOTD . You can create your own quote and print these onto your chosen attire.
