ANDIE WALSH, PRETTY IN PINK

While the John Hughes-penned (Howard Deutch-directed) Pretty in Pink was released in 1986, its heroine, Andie (Molly Ringwald) makes like the average 2012 hipster. She shops in vintage stores, sells vinyl, crafts her own anachronistic-looking clothing herself… the list goes on. We movie nerds all know a hipster or two, and hopefully these Andie-inspired choices will answer to the gifting needs of hipster and movie nerd alike.

Pretty in Pink Soundtrack on Vinyl

Priced at $22 (at Amazon)

This is a Pretty in Pink soundtrack — on pink vinyl. And Andie both worked in a record store and loved the color pink. It’s just so overwhelmingly meta. This special vinyl soundtrack was made for Record Store Day 2012 and does have a pretty stellar lineup of music, ranging from the title song by The Psychedelic Furs to still-relevant tracks by The Smiths, OMD, Echo and the Bunnymen, New Order, and INXS, among others.

Rusty Zipper ’80s Clothing Patterns

Priced from $3 to $20

Do you have any friends who can actually sew and who are hipster enough to rock ’80s outfits like Andie? Rusty Zipper is a vintage clothing site that also offers the option of do-it-yourself patterns that date back to multiple decades — the ’80s are the obvious go-to for any Pretty in Pink fans, especially those who might want to take a shot at recreating Andie’s hideous prom dress. This could also be a fun idea for people who don’t sew but would appreciate the humor in the ugly clothing.

Margaret Rosenberg Hat, Goorin Bros.

Priced at $70

If you or your friends desire an Andie-like cloche hat but would be creeped out by wearing an actual vintage hat that used to be one someone else’s head, Goorin Bros. is a chain of hat boutiques that sells finely made vintage-inspired hats. This style, in particular, looks like the ones that Andie wore, but there are also Duckie-like hats for the gents out there too.

 

 

Giving Duckie the parting thought here, this holiday season, in addition to buying people gifts, can’t we all just try a little tenderness?
