Yesterday (July 19th) marked 25 years since the movie, Clueless, arrived in theaters, so today I thought I would wear a modern tribute to that iconic film. The dress is plaid, the shoes are platform and the look is (I hope) fabulous.
Dress: BCBGeneration Plaid Ruffle Mini Dress
6pm.com is selling the dress for under $38 -- what a deal! The dress is comfortable and chic, and I love the ruffled hem and puff sleeves.
I was immediately reminded of the plaid looks in Clueless when I saw this dress. 1990s fashion is definitely making a comeback. I also think costume designer Mona May was ahead of her time; many of Cher's outfits could still be worn today, like the Alaïa dress she wears to the party in the Valley.
Shoes: Sophia Webster Freya Platform Sandals in Gold

Alicia Silverstone, who played Cher, is no longer a teenager; instead, she's playing a mom to one in the new Netflix series, The Baby-Sitters Club. (She plays mom to Kristy, the founder of the club.) I loved those books growing up, and the new reboot -- which I binged last week -- is refreshing, nostalgic and timely all at once. The episode where Mary Anne babysits for a transgender girl is particularly outstanding. I highly recommend it.
