4 Style Lessons 'Stranger Things' Has Taught Me

When the third season of 'Twin Peaks' was airing, I wrote a blog post about the style lesson I've learned from the show. Now that 'Stranger Things' is back with their second season, I'm gonna do the  exact same thing. 'Stranger Things' has really managed to fascinate and influence the fashion world as of recently. For example, the Louis Vuitton's SS18 runway show during Paris Fashion Week featured a look with a 'Stranger Things' t-shirt and now, Topshop has completely transformed their website in conjunction with their new 'Stranger Things' collaboration with Netflix. Anyways, here's the four style lessons 'Stranger Things' has taught me:
  1. The '80s is obviously the best fashion era ever. 'Stranger Things' really made me fall in love with '80s fashion all over again.

  2. Buzz cuts suggests a strong female character. After watching Eleven (not to mention how well Millie Bobby Brown wears the hairstyle outside of her role) rock the hairstyle, I really warmed up to the idea of cutting all my hair off.

  3. 'Geeky' is a new fashion statement, but it's also an attitude. Part of what makes Barb so popular, I believe, is the fact that she she's an outcast and a smart girl who was treated very unfairly. She looks effortlessly good and because of her, big geek glasses, mom jeans and pink frills are dominating the fashion picture. Everyone loves Barb and people are celebrating her by embracing her signature geeky look. #JusticeForBarb

  4. Money doesn't equal style. We already knew this one, but Joyce and Jonathan really reaffirms this statement for me.
Are you as excited for the new season of 'Stranger Things' as I am?

What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Shirt: Archive By Alexa | Pinafore: Topshop | Boots: Mango

October is every blogger and horror enthusiast's favourite month. This month, it's all about Halloween, scary movies, spooky events and dressing up in party costumes. Seeing as I love horror movies, I wanted to share a few of my favourite horror movies on here. I have so many favourites that it was almost an impossible task for me to choose, but I've managed to find five movies I really wanna watch again before Halloween.

IT (2017): If you've seen the trailer, you'll already have a pretty good idea of what 'IT' is about. Basically, there's this evil, supernatural clown lurking around in the sewers and he takes the kids of small town Derry. And then there's a bunch of kids who try to figure out what his deal is and where the clown takes their siblings, friends and school buddies. Only children can see him and he can show transform himself into their biggest fears (like in Harry Potter). For me, this movie is a 10/10 just for the aesthetics alone. The movie were just was overall greatness and I highly recommend you watch it.
Pay the Ghost (2015): Like most movies starring Nicolas Cage, there's a huge problem that needs to be fixed. In this case, Nicholas Cage is looking for his son who was kidnapped my this creepy ghost-demon during a Halloween parade in New York City. 'Pay the Ghost' has supernatural phenomenons, Salem witches, Nicholas Cage and New York City and that's just one good cocktail if you ask me.

Scream (1996): Who doesn't love a classic like Scream? Although the plot is pretty much all about stabbing and escaping a masked figure, the movie is so damn good. I don't know what it is, but I'm all about the '90s high school boyfriend drama which Scream is an embodiment of.
Death Note (2017): Apparently 'Death Note' was a Japanese anime or manga series before it was made into an American movie. I've never watched the original and I don't think I want to since the fans of the original story seem to be SO upset about the American version. Anyways, I thought it was amazing. It was a different take on a horror movie and it had Nat Wolff and the best cheesy '80s love songs in it.

The Sixth Sense (1999): The Sixth Sense is a theatrical masterpiece. Bruce Willis plays the role as Malcolm Crowe, a child psychologist, who tries to help Cole Sears, the cutest little boy ever. Haley Joel Osment plays the role as Cole Sears and he "sees dead people" as the famous quote goes. The two develop a friendship and the movie has quite a plot twist in the end.

That's about it, my dudes. Like I said, these are just five out of a very large list of my favorite horror movies. What are some of your favorite horror films?
