I guess no more John Hughesiverse for me. I don't get why Andie Walsh dresses differently yet is so self-conscious about it! If you want to exert your individualism, then just get on with it. If she's a girl truly expressing herself, then why would she be ashamed to let her rich boyfriend take her home? Why does she act like she's unique yet can't even like the true her? Though I must say, I understand Andie Walsh's position. Would she be another trendy, go with the crowd 80s girl if her father was loaded? ” - Roxcerise
