After hours of begging and pleading, my mom finally let me join the Girl Scouts in the 4th grade. Too bad I switched schools the next year because I so would have rocked it as a Girl Scout. Although I tend to do things my friends do even though I initially may not be personally interested such as joining the Girl Scouts, I did have another reason for wanting to get dressed up in those high waisted green khaki shorts and little vests with few badges (I wasn't as "active" as I would have liked to have been) and that was because of watching Troop Beverly Hills, one of my favorite movies as a kid (That plus Teen Witch rocked me and my sisters tube socks! Oh! I don't forget The Next Karate Kid!)
And as fate would have it, the movie was playing tonight on ABC Family. So I gathered up the troop (my sister and my mom) and huddled around the heater to watch this delectable movie. I remembered how awesome Phyllis Nefler was always dressed and the most memorable outfit was what I like to call her "Pringle Chip Dress" because it well, looked like the shape of a pringle. If you don't remember, it's when she's throwing a little party in honor of her becoming the new troop leader. So tonight, I relished in the outlandish, fabulousness of her outfits and the little girls funky late 80's get up. I managed to snap some pictures from the tv because I just could not find many images on google.
I wish I knew how to make my Juniors Girl Scout Uniform that chic when I was young.
An adorable Jenny Lewis with an AWESOME hat. Killer dress too.
90210 children sure do know how to dress!
Hehe...I want to attach a bird looking object to my outfits.
Annie finally came out of her shell when she got dressed up in this frou frou dress. I seriously wanted this dress since I was a little girl. Don't even get me started on the little hat.
But this lady will always be the belle of the ball!
As I finished the movie, I could only sit there reminiscing all the good old days of being a kid and suck up my fear of growing older. But hey, if I can dress up like Phyllis Nefler when I get to that age, sign me up baby!
