A friend once set me a challenge, post a song to Facebook that I loved, beginning with the Letter P. There were a few contenders, including a lot of songs by Pulp and Parklife by Blur, but in the end I opted for a song that is not only a total classic, but is also the soundtrack to one of my fave 80s chick flicks.
Pretty in Pink is the ultimate 80s chick flick, starring the brilliant Molly Ringwald as Andie, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who attracts the attention of the lovely Andrew McCarthy as Blane (those 80s movie names). The film culminates in the prom scene, where Andie wears a pink dress – hence the title. But the dress is so god damm awful, you can’t help but wish that Andie had chosen a real ‘pretty in pink’ design from Chi Chi London!
Chi Chi London has been gaining a steady reputation as a place to go for a standout prom dress, the designs are beautiful and have a touch of vintage about them, but they come in a range of lengths to suit everyone, which means they can also be worn for weddings, race days and summer garden parties too.
The current collection is frothy and fabulous, and has a real emphasis on Molly Ringwald style pink shades. As a fan of pink (I don’t think you can ever have enough of it quite frankly), this collection makes me want to sing – it is just so soft and pretty. And if are a lover of pink, you are in good company, with Florence Welch, Rihanna, Jessica Alba and Blake Lively all wearing the girliest (is that a word???) of hues recently.
