Now Channeling: Winona Ryder in Reality Bites

The other weekend I was flipping through the channels --okay, so it was like, 9 o'clock on a Saturday night-- and was presently surprised to find Reality Bites was playing.  Though I've already seen it too many times to count, I got sucked in  once again and watched the whole thing (much to my husband's dismay).  By the end of the movie I was dreaming of chopping my hair off--a'la Leilana's messy bed-head, wearing dark red lipstick and living in floral maxi dresses and mary janes.  

Want to get Winona a.k.a. Leilana's look?  Here are some Etsy finds that fit the bill:

1.  Tapestry vest via urbandames (to be worn while dancing to "My Sharona" in a gas station)
2.  Chambray shirt dress via Miskabelle  (but this one's not from The Gap...)
3.  Round wayfarers via twinheartsvintage (because you *may* have been up all night, chatting on the psychic hotline)
4.  Floral maxi dress via shopCOLLECT 
5.  Vintage Coke t-shirt via 10thAvenueEast
6.  Pleated chiffon dress via mintmarypea (no, you will NOT look like a doily in this)
7.  Black mary janes via 33vintage

If you haven't seen this movie, you HAVE to remedy that like, now.  Here's a little taste... 



  1. What is it about this movie that you can watch it 9,567 times and never get sick of it and still seing along?! This is an awesome post! :) Grunge was so good.

  2. SERIOUSLY! I want to re-live the 90s soooo bad.

  3. Reality Bites is just good company in general. I remember cutting my hair (myself) like Winona's and purposely not brushing it. Good times.
