Cher's Digital Closet

I've been pretty chilled the last couple of weeks. Just going out on dinners with friends, and watching movies. That sort of wintery thing. Maybe it has to do with me partying like crazy since I moved to Madrid? Hmmm... So I'm taking a little break.

And last Saturday I stayed in watching Clueless, which I hadn't seen in ages and was one of my fave movies from when I was like 13. I used to go to sleep every night with it. So, as you can probably imagine, I pretty much know all the script by heart! And I did learn who Alaïa is thanks to Cher. I'll give her that.

So do you remember this scene? 

Back then it looked like the height of [non-existent] girl technology. Sci-Fi. But now, some 15 years later, there's probably an App out there to do just that. And we all know how much girls love to share their mood-boards on Polyvore, and their outfits on social media sites like Chictopia these days.

We are used to touch screens, thanks to iPhones and iPads, and you can already try on any outfit, watches and even sunglasses, from the safety of your laptop via Augmented Reality. In 2010 there were hundreds of articles about AR technology. This is one recent example: Is It Curtains From Changing Rooms?

So I guess dear Cher would've had an awesome time in 2011. And thank God we outgrew those giant computer screens! And by the way, these are my all time favorite quotes from the movie:

Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress!
Mel: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein

And...

Cher: Oh no, you don't understand, this is an Alaïa
Mugger: An awhatta?

Here's a little video about Clueless' fashion:


Classic!
