So, a couple weeks ago I was watching the TV show “Happy Endings” (which, if you’re not watching it yet, please stay tuned for my vaguely threatening 10,000 word essay about why you should be), and the super stylish character Jane made a brief appearance in a cobalt blue toggle coat. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was my coat soulmate. I had to have it. After an hour of frantic Googling, I randomly found it on the Victoria’s Secret website (victory!), but it was sold out in my size (tragedy!). Unable to accept the reality that my dream coat was gone, I called their customer service hotline and told them my sob story. Guess what? They had one left in the whole country, in my size, for half price. Bought it. Boom. Best day of my life.

Since Amelia also¬†acquired¬†her dream coat after seeing it in a movie and obsessively tracking it down online, we thought we’d join forces and offer our best tips for others who are attempting to hunt down coats/dresses/shoes/jewelry/whatever from movie and TV wardrobes. Your quest will require patience, diligence, and a shit ton of Googling. Ready to get started? Check our step-by-step guide, after the jump! Keep reading »

I watched the ’80s classic “Better Off Dead” this weekend, and wow, hindsight really is 20/20. First off, it’s pretty clear that John Cusack’s character Lane Meyer is kind of an obsessive psycho when it comes to his girlfriend Beth. Um, hangers with her picture on them? Cuh-raaaaaazy. Second, Beth is pretty much a wet blanket, and it’s so obvious that Lane’s neighbor, exotically cool French foreign exchange student Monique, is a way better match. For one, she’s French. But also, she likes sports, and can fix a car, and can spot Lane’s major problem (that he gives up before even trying) from a mile away. Plus, her fashion is so, so good.

For most of the movie, she wears an oversized winter coat with a porkpie hat and a lot of boyish layers. Somehow it totally works, but we realize her look may not be for everyone, so we’ve updated the baggy boyish thing with some contemporary touches. Click through to see our interpretation.
