YES, I’m wearing a Ghostbusters t-shirt and YES I’m excited as hell to own it! How positively fabulous is it?! I was making my usual rounds through Kmart checking out their new t-shirts and I saw it and immediately had an OOTD in mind.
When I was growing up I lived next door to two brothers who I used to hang out with and use them for their amazing toys (I’m talking Castle Grayskull and all the accoutrements). One day the younger of the two told me they were going to the movies to see a new film called Ghostbusters, and do you think I got an invite? Hell to the no! Damn those boys and their icky boy bits for not inviting me. How rude, I could have seen it in originally on the big screen, but alas I had to wait years before I actually saw it on TV (remember when it took YEARS for it to be shown on TV?) and I loooooooooooooooooooved it. Don’t get me started on the spin off cartoon series, that shit was awesome!
Not only is this tee fabulously kitsch but it was also a bargain; $12 baby!! Today I’ve teamed it with my fave pair of boyfriend jeans, a white Express blazer and new pair of royal blue heels, also from Kmart, another bargain at $20. Instead of my usual handbag or clutch I thought it was more appropriate to carry a backpack for all my ghostbusting (ghostbustering?) adventures. This used to be my school bag (if you can believe!) and it’s been on most of my travels overseas.
Ghostbusters is just one of about a million movies that I loved as a kid, even if I didn’t understand all the gags. Movies are magical and I love the way they can transport you to another life and time. Are there certain movies that trigger childhood memories for you? What are they?
So, who you gonna call??
