Saint Drew In Wishful Thinking

wt13_.jpg

At first, I was going to do a post about Mad Love but then remembered a different, lesser-known movie that better showcased Drew’s amazing style from back in those days. It was called Wishful Thinking. In the 90’s and early 00’s, if liked an actor I would watch their entire filmography like an obsesshia. It is that exact reason why I have BUBBLE BOY on VHS. I had such a boner for Jakey Gyllenhaal after Donnie Darko (HALLO DIDN’T WE ALL.) Nowadays, I think he’s a big ol’ nerd (1:17 ple) but I would still have sex with him of course. ANYWAY, that is how I came across Wishful Thinking. The film itself sucks balls in my opinion except for the style and whimsy of Lena, played by Saint Drew.

Love this cluster of flower brooches on her sweater!! Drew was really into daisies in the 90’s so she usually accessorized with a fresh daisy in her ‘do during all of her photoshoots. WHY DID I THROW AWAY ALL MY MAGAZINES

Tons of rings, big glasses, cute cardigans, colorful scarves and tights…THE BEST.

Loved the way her apartment looked too.

Safe to say I’m sprung on 90’s Drew again, no?

PS LOTS of 90’s Drew on my tumblr!

      It really sucks to be honest! Only watch it if you love Drew! I hate the main characters!

      Well like I said in the beginning of the post I was going to do Mad Love but her style in this movie was better. I THINK I will do Mad Love anyway just to balance it out! I’ll post next week or at the end of this one even though I’m afraid my blog turned into a 90’s Drew fanblog the past week!

    90s Drew was my teen dream idol obsession. Was flicking channels last night and Mad Love was actually on TV. Thank you for reigniting my love for 90s Drew Barrymore style!!

      I liked everyone better in the 90’s. Madonna, Drew, Angelina. Everyone’s so boring now!

    Ooh good one Marie. I might still have the poster for this movie somewhere…yowza. Yeah the other characters sucked and even Jon Stewart was annoying! I still have all my Drew clippings stashed in some faraway basement…I totally had a Drew wall. And I made a terrible Drew website in 1998 (on xoom.com). For serial. 4 EVR.

    I thought I was the only one that had this on VHS in high school. Terrible movie, though I still watched it 100 times.
