Most stylish movies: Mad Love edition

In the 90's i was obsessed beyond words with Drew Barrymore. I thought she was the most gorgeous, coolest, stylish rad movie star ever. She was soooo badass. I saw all of her movies (she drives a yellow car in every single one of her motion pictures), read her autobiography twice, tried to emulate her way of dressing, cut my hair like hers and even kept a folder of magazine clippings of her. Slightly embarrassing, yes, however i think it totally speaks to how i evolved today: i suppose while most girls in high school were crazy for with clean cut cookie-cutter Jennifer Love Hewitt, my affection was dedicated to the quirky anti-conformist role model that was Drew, sort of the icon for the off-beat girl that i was, searching for my personality and refusing to follow the norm. Ah the torturous resonance that comes with being a teenager! Mad Love was mos def my favorite movie back in the day. She was everything i wanted to be (minus the bipolar episodes, i suppose) and revisiting it recently reminded me of just how sick the fashion was (flannel plaid oversized button-downs! White baby tees underneath mini floral dresses! Combat boots! Piece-y short hair!) and how amazing Drew Barrymore is.

.~Casey~. When dull you want fun, when rainy you want sunny, when cold you want warm, when hot you want cool, when loud you want quiet, when sad you want happy, when poor you want rich, when fat you want thin, when short you want tall...Wanting perfection could lead to disapointment...Rather than how blissful it was; think of how truly joyful it is now...
