Ode to Pretty In Pink

I have loved the movie “Pretty In Pink” since I first saw it 25+ years ago.

You see as a child, I was in love with fashion design and routinely called my Barbies by the name Andi.  So this movie brought together all of my childhood loves.  It was meant to be.  The only thing about the movie that bothered me was the dress at the end.  I watched the movie last night and it continued to disappoint.  She had all of those great materials and could use them in any way she wanted.  And this is what she decided on?  Really?
