Mermaids_AL

GREETINGS….Remember our favorite Cher movie that starts with an “M” from the 80’s? No, not Mask or Moonstruck, but Mermaids, set in the early ’60’s, starring sexy single mom Rachel Flax played by Cher, her prude daughter (Winona Ryder) and a little Christina Ricci!

This film resonated with a baby Rie-Rie back then and it still does today. The relationships between the characters, the music (64′ was a GREAT year for tunes) and especially the fashion! Let’s lurk Rachel Flax’s chic styles, shall we?

Here we go….this was the crème de la crème for me. I WANTED THIS PINK POLKA DOT DRESS SO BAD!! I was a ten year-old braceface when this movie came out, but I knew, JUST KNEW, someday I’d gussy up in a polka dot dress and KNOCK ‘EM DEAD.

Cher has a Boris and Natasha-type love thang with shoe salesdude played by Bob Hoskins. He makes her laugh and probably supplies her with endless amounts of cha-cha heels. TRUE ROMANCE.

I feel like I might be like Mrs. Flax when I become a mom.
