It’s Movie Monday in the Haus of Damiani. I was watching the movie Drive the other day. Caution: It’s super violent, so don’t go watching it if that’s not your thing. I won’t ruin it for you but Ryan Gosling wears this kick ass bomber jacket in it. Bomber jackets are comfortable and stylish and can make anyone look instantly cool. By the end of the movie I was yelling at the screen, “that blood and dirt is never going to come out of your jacket! It’s ruined!” By the way, I only talk to the movie when I’m at home, not in the theatre. Never in the theatre. If you do that, STOP IT. Don’t do that. It’s annoying.
Another kick ass bomber jacket is in one of my favorite movies from the best decade ever: Pretty In Pink. Andie (the incomparable Molly Ringwald) wears a vintage green embroidered bomber jacket in the scene with Iona (Annie Potts), who is sporting a beehive just because she feels like it. If you haven’t seen the movie, you must see it. I’m sure it’s on cable every once in a while.
Bomber jackets were a huge trend this past spring and I hope they continue to be on trend for a long time. Even if they don’t, you should still rock them if you like them. Wear what makes you happy, because that’s all that matters.
