Party Girl (1995)

Thanks to my new followers and all the lovelies that have commented on my new blogging endeavor! That makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Today I bring you a special treat from the 90's:

This movie stars Parker Posey as a party girl named Mary struggling with her finances and her place in the world. When she doesn't have enough money to pay for bail or drugs or something or an other, she turns to her godmother, a librarian at the New York Public Library. Mary's godmother hires her to be a library clerk, a job she hates at first. Eventually though, she grows to love it and turns out to have a knack for organizing things with the dewey decimal system (including jeans and records, who knew?). Mary also falls in love with a Lebanese falafel vendor, because who can resist those guys? The film is filled with some pretty wacky 90's stuff that reminds me of something that Elizabeth Spiridakis from White Lightning would wear. There are seriously high heeled sneakers in this film. I die. Costume design is by Michael Clancey.

So, you know this movie is going to be good because it starts out with sequined shorts.

I love how she is carrying that microscopic purse. How did people live with these tiny purses in the 90's?

As mentioned I've mentioned before, I love closet shots. Also, note the earring attached to her bra.

Always accessorize your blue satin gloves with a green lollipop.

I would wear this with my gold pen necklace in a heartbeat.

I don't remember what this girl's name was, but isn't she FABULOUS?! So many sparkles! I should have worn this for New Years.

Everyone used to have shoes just like that...they were so heavy!

At some sort of Middle Eastern themed party

Love these shoes! These things are all over Etsy.

So there you have it! If you are in the mood for some completely insane 90's fashion, or you just like Parkey Posey, you should totally watch this movie.
