Clueless, Closets and Cookies

The movie Clueless is 17 years old! Can you believe it? Gosh how time flies! It came out in 1995! I adored that movie and I still get a kick out of it when it comes on television. It's truly a classic. Entertainment Weekly magazine put together a special reunion issue and video which featured some of the cast members. I thought they looked really good.The reunion video is attached below.

Was I inspired by Clueless? Most definitely! I adored the character Cher, her closet and all of her fabulous clothes. I went out and bought a red plaid blazer from Talbots. They didn't have a yellow one. HaHaHa I had a stripey shirt similar to Tai and some other things. I thought I would share these classic pics of  me with you. My older readers have seen these, but I thought my newer readers would like to see them as well. Especially since we're on the Clueless subject.As if!
Speaking of closets! I just finished organizing mine. My closet is not big enough to hold two seasons, so I change it out twice a year. It use to take me several days to finish, but now I can do it in about a day or two.
I do the whole FOUR pile thing! Four? Yes, Four! Throw away. Donate. Keep. Re-sell for money on eBay. If your clothes and shoes are in good condition, you can make some extra cash by selling them. There are lots of people that shop second hand, including myself. Hmmm, what else?
Something OLD, Something NEW! To save closet space, I use hangers that will hold an entire outfit (skirt + top). I take iPhone pics of my shoes and tape them on the outside of the original box. Every season, I try on EVERYTHING! I hate it, but it really tells me what fits and what needs to GO. I just recently created two boards (Fall/Winter Outfits and Spring/Summer Outfits) on Pinterest, in which I will begin pinning any and everything I buy from now on. I thought it would help me "see" what's in my closet without ME having to take pictures of everything. hahaha I'm always looking for a simpler way :)

Hard to believe that movie is that old - well the cast is still looking amazing.

Good for you for getting your closet cleaned and organized. I need to do this!

I loved that movie, it's so great :) Can't believe it's been that long though, seems like yesterday..time flies. I organize my closet through the year. I don't change it from season to season, I did that once only to tear my closet up again looking for a winter thing I wanted to wear on a cool day in the spring. I just rotate my stuff and get rid of things that I don't wear any more. I take mine to Barnardos, a children's charity here or the cancer research charity. I do have some I keep for ebay as well. I hope you have a wonderful weekend doll, the closet looks fabulous :)) xx

Style Journey said...

I feel so old now! That movie is 17years old? You were rocking that plaid blazer. Love your idea about taking photos and putting them on your pin boards so you know what's in your closet. Great idea! Heather

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I can't believe that movie is 17 yrs. old now. The fashions were so fun and I loved that the story was based on Jane Austen's Emma. You're so cute in your Clueless inspired fashions Kim! And I love what you did with your closet. I so need to re-organize mine.

Have a fantastic weekend doll!

Haha, I love this post! You were totally both Cher and Tai, judging by your plaid outfits. :) Clueless is one of the best movies IMO. It's kinda like the Mean Girls of its time.

The first time I went to a party in the valley in soCal I did a rolling with the homies dance, lol.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Such a great movie! Can't believe it's that old. And love seeing these pix of you. You were obviously inspired. So cute :)

Have a great weekend, sweetie! xoxo

Oh goodness this such a classic, i remember when it came out, I had no idea it was as old as it is. I loved the suits and Cher's closet. I used to take Polaroids of my shoes, haha. Thanks for your sweet comment. Happy weekend Kim. xx/Madison

Little Rus said...

You are so organised! I also need to play dress-up some time soon, for new ideas and inspiration.

And you know what? I've never seen the movie! I only found it a few months ago and watched a few minutes... I need to get back to it.

Clueless is a great movie! You look
fab in the photos Kim:) Have a lovely weekend!

Cara said...

Wow, I feel really old, I remember when it first came out! I love the throwback pictures Kim, your lipstick in the Tai lookalike look is totally fab!

Someday I will have a closet big enough to hold all of my clothes so I don't have to do the seasonal switch. The photos of outfits is a great idea. I may try it when I do my seasonal switch this weekend.

I loved seeing images of the clueless reunion.
And I definitely needed those closet tips. Mine is such a mess.

Lorena said...

I died a little when you said that the movie is that old, OMG .- where has time gone ?!
I loved that movie, in fact i still do.
I feel lucky that i get to wear all the same clothes all year long, so i do not have to change my closet around.
Have a great weekend.

Well... said...

Man...I feel old...haha and I want to go watch Clueless now :)

Mica said...

I cannot believe Clueless is that old, so crazy! It was on TV here the other week, such fun to watch :)

Loved the pics of you in your clueless inspired outfits! :)

Your wardrobe reorganisation sounds like such a good idea! I made a metal note of your tip to try everything on. It would take me a while to do, but makes sense as I won't plan to wear something only to find out it doesn't fit. Or if it has a stain! How I can wash and iron something and not notice it's stained I don't know...happened to me the other week, haha!

Aw i love this movie, I can watch it over and over again. I only saw it a few years after it was released because I guess I was too young, but the fashion still made a huge impact on me. Love your Cher inspired look, so pretty! You've done such a good job of organizing your closet! Can I bribe you (with lots of cupcakes) to come organize mine, haha.

Corinne said...

Holy crap I officially feel old!! I remember my sister taking a VHS & recording this movie when it first premiered on TV! So funny you mention it, it was just on the other day & I can still recite it (must have seen it a billion times-- pretty sure Cher is the reason why I've always wanted a gigantic color-coded closet!!) I definitely have to pick up that entertainment weekly issue, too good to pass up! & my goodness, I wish my closet was as organized as yours. So jealous!!

Great pics of you. Your wardrobe looks so tidy now. I kept putting off doing mine but I now have a big bag for the charity shop - it's in the car now! You have reminded me that I still don't have photos on all my shoe boxes - so I haven't finished after all!

this is one of my favorite movies. . . but I didn't realize it came out when i was 5 years old! Jeeze. crazy to think about- i'm definitely inspired by "high end" grunge like in this movie.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

OMG I was obsessed with that movie. OBSESSED!!

Like, I even had a Clueless themed 13th birthday party and only admitted entrance to those dressed as Cher or Dionne (or even Amber, let's be real, haha). I love, love, love that you dressed like Clueless too!! I love your Cher inspired outfits. They are PERFECT!

I cannot believe it has been 17 years. That's insane. I think I've seen the movie a couple hundred times. I used to watch it every single day for like three years. My lord.

My former editor at the newspaper's husband was best friends with Paul Rudd throughout middle school, high school, and college. And they STILL hang out. Like, every time Paul comes back to town Michelle and her husband hang out with him the entire time. And her husband has high school photos of Paul up on Facebook. I'm so jealous I could cry. :P

Everyone in that ET cover shoot looks like they haven't aged one day, except Christian. Awww lol.

Absolutely LOVE Clueless! I need to watch it next weekend :)

Will you love me any less if I tell you I have never watched Clueless??Seriously,how come have I never even heard of it??I'm definitely going to watch it soon! Kimmy, look at your style, glam and shining since your teenage. How have you kept that glowing zero wrinkle skin up to now? When you write posts like this one or the travelling tips one I am in awe of your organisational skills...I'm rather tidy myself but you are at the top ranks doll!Have a lovely week :-xxxxx

Kim, I love this post. You are such a riot. When I saw how you compared yourself to those girls, you were serious about this movie. You are the best! You shopped at Talbots? You really are a diva!! lol. You did a great job with this. Thank you so much for the giveaway. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

Ivana Split said...

17 years! that would be about right because I remember being so into this film when I was in elementary school! watched it 4 times in a row!!!

My fav character was the best friend but I cannot remember her name..I read somewhere she was 25 or even older when the film was made---and she really looked as young as her part....and on that cover with Alicia she still looks 18-isn't it crazy! some people really have good genes!
