On Screen Style Icon: Gidget


When my sister and I were younger, we were only allowed to watch certain shows on Nickelodeon. While most kids my age were keeping up with Spongebob in that under water pineapple thing, I was glued to channel 23, TV Land, where they played all the old shows from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. So, while I don't get any of those Spongebob memes on tumblr, I can quote you lines from The Brady Bunch, Green Acres, I Dream of Jeanie, Bewitched, I Love Lucy, and on and on and on. Looking back, it was probably watching these shows as a little kid that peaked my fascination with everything vintage, because I definitely do remember wishing I owned basically all of Barbara Eden's mini dresses...and I still wish that to this day. Anyways, every summer Natalie and I would get pretty excited because that meant that TV Land would start ,well, rerunning the Gidget reruns. Gidget, was basically the baddest chick in the game to 5th grade me. She surfed all day, met a bunch of "hunky" dudes, and had an incredible closet. While my days of watching her and Moondoggie run around on the beach are over, her adorable style is something I still channel to this day. Just look back at any of the pictures of Sally Fields playing Gidget, or even Sandra Dee in the movie, and you'll see exactly what I mean. Also, if you want to see where you can purchase any of the items in my collage above, just follow THIS link.
