Film, Food & Fashion- Troop Beverly Hills

Tent, Red dress, beret, cookies, hat, compass, smore maker, khaki dress, olive cape

Long ago, this was definitely my go to slumber party movie. My friends and I would eat smores and dream that Shelley Long was our Girl Scout leader. I loved the out of control fashion, glamorous camping and feel good lovey dovey ending.  In short, it's about a bunch of spoiled girls in Beverly Hills that don't know anything about girl scouting (big surprise), but Shelly Long (a rich about to be divorcee) leads them to victory and learns the ropes of the great out doors. I know..I know...this movie is sooooooo cheesy, but I love it! My favorite part as a kid, is their revised uniform fashion show.  Never underestimate the power of gold lame and khaki. 


Valley of the Dolls- Film, Food & Fashion

Pill JarsDaisy Shirt, Lip stickValley Book/movieGlassesShoesPink Dress, Bag

This is the kinda girly, trashy, guilty pleasure of a movie I can really get behind. I confess I have read the book (okay fine... I've read it twice) and I loved it. It's a pill popping, cat fighting, wig throwing whirl of a good time.

You should watch this soap opera with a glass of champagne or stiff cocktail...maybe some dolls on hand and really take in the drama and disaster of it all. The fashion is all about sixties sexy secretary and the glamour of broadway...some good some bad ...all mind blowing.
