I took a trip down memory lane on the weekend and watched Dirty Dancing at my friend’s place. I mean, I could have watched it in my head, but it had been a while since I actually watch watched it.
I watched it in a totally different mindset though, particularly observing wardrobe. Maybe it’s because my fashion blog consumes 80% of my brain and social life, but I had never watched this movie in that light before.
We know fashion cycles come and go, but I never thought I would see the day when nearly all the outfits and clothes from an 80’s movie would be in full swing in 2016! Here are some of my favourite looks:
In case you wanted to shop the Dirty Dancing closet, I made you a little Curvy friendly shopping list!

My gran always said if yo were young enough to wear it the first round you are too old to do it the second round. Sadly for grandma (bless her soul) I really don’t care! Some of these are great. I for one am loving the return of the white jean and peasant blouses.
Dirty Dancing is one of the best movies ever made. I think every woman can recite this movie from heart. I never thought to go back and look at the fashion. They do say that fashion goes through cycles. Everything comes back.
I have to admit that I haven’t really watched it since I was a kid, until know. I finally understand the actual plot of the movie! hahaha
Thanks for reading Mary!
