Ah, to be Sloane Peterson

I just watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off for probably the 700th time, and I've gotta say Sloane Peterson (Ferris's girlfriend, duh) has got some rockin' style. From the pleated shorts to the slouchy flat boots to the white fringe leather jacket and her amazing hair, she is truly a vision (by the way if that sounded sarcastic at all, I assure you I am completely serious). I want to own her entire wardrobe. In my opinion, Sloane Peterson is on the same cinematic fashion level as Annie Hall, so why doesn't she get as much love?

When I was younger I always wanted to be like her, one of those girls who is gorgeous and soft-spoken and perenially sweet and graceful (I remember Ann Landers advising her readers to speak softly and with sophistication, and everytime I decided that this was going to be the first day of my new, soft-spoken, sophisticated life I'd end up tracking dog poop into the school and swearing or running into a pole or having road rage). I'm definitely more of a Ferris.

When I was little, I too had that ambition. To be soft spoken, etc. Not after Sloane perticulary(though Ferris Bueller is one of the best movies ever) but after many type women I saw like that. I think I accomplished that a little too well. Right now I'm working on being a little more aggressive.

Ah, I loved Sloane too. Her jacket, her boots, everything about her was rad. Unfortunately, I think I'm a little closer to the rage-induced Jennifer Grey in that movie, high kicking people for no reason.
