living in: heathers


Heathers is the ultimate teen black comedy, full of sparkling 1980s goodness and vicious, malicious wit. Its sting is swift, its style subversive and its appeal legendary. The privileged clique of girls rule the halls of Westerburg High with an iron first, and the rest of us nobodies suffer an acute longing for their Swatch watches, croquet games and unnaturally volumized hair.

When the Heathers’ taunting and tormenting gets out of hand, the group’s sole non-Heather and her bad-boy boyfriend exact revenge in a way that leaves the school reeling. As the body count rises, so does your alarming interest in re-doing the 1980s in a similarly rich-girl way. Silk sheets, mock snotty disposition, embarrassing fabric hair accessories? Don’t mind if I do. But this time, let’s skip the mugful of Drano, shall we?

    This is one fantastic Living In feature. I was expecting Drano and a red scrunci, and you did not disappoint. :D

    If you’re going to buy a swatch, get it off the website. That way you get a two year warranty on the mechanism. :)
    There’s lots more fun colors too.
    I love swatches!
