Have I told you about how I'm totally obsessed with Heathers? I love Heathers the movie. I love Heathers the Musical. I saw it twice, I'm so obsessed. I even unwittingly made the title card font one of my blog layout's main fonts. Whoops.
If you haven't seen this 1988 Winona Ryder / Christian Slater masterpiece, get on Netflix and go, go go! It's Mean Girls if Mean Girls was a dark, angsty, black comedy about murder, psychopathy, good vs evil, and teen angst. And the Musical is even better (in my opinion anyway. Really intelligent changes to the story-telling.) I hear a movie musical is in the works and I could not be more pleased.

How's my Heather Chandler bitch-face?
I had a ton of fun putting this outfit together. I might step up my shoes and skirt if I find something cuter. I also really want a rad collar brooch like in the musical. I was really torn between doing a Heather or Veronica (the main character, played by Winona Ryder), but when I was at the Thrift Store this blazer was dying to be bought. Here's a full body shot, minus the black flats. I really like costumes that can be incorporated into my wardrobe. I like to think of it as an excuse to expand my wardrobe. It's also fun for me to pick characters whose outfits I can interpret my own way.
white button-down - traded from a friend
collar chains - c/o Born Pretty Store
red cropped blazer - thrifted
