SCREEN | The Last Days of Disco

I love this movie. The one criticism is that the fashion at times reads a little more late 90s's (when it was filmed) than the intended "very early 80s", but still a gem for the clothes and that inimitable Whit Stillman dialogue.

I love this movie, too! Chloe's character's daytime preppy look was so inspiring to me. I also do believe that the early 80s and 90s have a lot in common.

Thanks for reminding me of this movie! It is a film that I've never actually seen, but have been meaning to for ages. Good, good style.

I'll have to check out the movie-I'll always love my Ducks and Company Lime green Sweater with my pink button down :)

"There's something really sexy about Scrooge McDuck." Yes. Best movie line ever.

Great film and Chloƫ's style is amazing (in this film and in real life), I had a great time watching it, and the ending scene is really cheerful.

The characters were all prep school kids so I actually think the wardrobes work in this film. This film is one of my faves!

The 90s element that I saw was mostly with Kate Beckinsale's character who wore a few cropped baby-t's and sort of had a Rachel Greene hair cut.
