'...there's this window into my heart
and you can open and crawl in whenever you want.'

Peggy Sue Got Married (1986)

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Starring Kathleen Turner (the title role) and Nicholas Cage. The premise is a little out there, involving time travel and a cast of adults we're supposed to believe are still in high school. But despite the far fetched'ness of it all, it never fails to completely suck me in with the fantasy of what would happen if Peggy didn't get married. Also, the soundtrack is wonderful, lots of Buddy Holly as you might've guessed.

(The role of the little sister is played by Sofia)

Inspired Etsy Finds (mostly)...

I think I missed seeing this film... it's the first time I saw Nicholas Cage so young and in a romantic film at that.

But I love heart lockets... I had one a few years back but I lost it. I'm looking for another one, but this time I want a silver vintage finish.

Sam said...

I must, must see this movie - in my holidays - it's now on my list!! Thank you! Kathleen Turner is awesome and I love a young Nicholas Cage (Valley Girl anyone?)!! ...and some wonderful 50s style pretties here - ah! Always a treat to see a new blog post from you dear Gabbi!!

Have a lovely week and my love to you and the furry one. XX's Sam.

Una de mis pesadillas recurrentes es que todavía voy al instituto de educación secundaria... Aún así, me encanta Peggy Sue y los hallazgos que nos muestras.


Kelley Anne said...

I always loved the vintage feeling of that film, especially the costumes. You've made me want to see it again:)

emma wallace said...

This movie is great! It is funny to see Kathleen Turner and Joan Allen and think, erm, okay, they're in high school! Ha! But the clothes are marvelous and the story is so fun!


Keith said...

I just wanted to say hello this Sunday afternoon. I hope you've had a great weekend. Take care. Enjoy the week ahead. Cheers!

Frock Around the Clock said...

That marching band uniform is completely insane - in the best sort of way. I love it! I might watch that film later on - it looks like a feast for the eyes! :) x

mothersvea said...

Clau! said...

I have never seen this move, nicolas cage looks funny.

I like the jacket she is wearing on that image ;)


Mondo said...

Blimey I'd forgotten all about 'Peggy Sue' - did Kathleen Turner do the Jessica rabbit voice?

Love the loafers - Dr Marten ones with tassels and an oxblood finish are fab, but almost impossible to find..

Down and Out Chic said...

cheers to a new week!

El regreso a nuestra infancia y adolescencia siempre recurrente.
No sé si es nostalgia o el deseo de
cambiar algo de nuestra vida.

muy tierna !

I love it when you do Etsy finds inspired by movies! :) I hadn't heard of this film until I watched it for one of my college classes (I think it was some sociology class about family roles?). I don't think I realized that Sofia Coppola was in it at the time! Haha, she's so adorable.

Diana said...

Sofia Coppola looks so different! She's aged so well.

I'm adding this movie to my Netflix! I've heard of it but never had any info about what it was about.


Clau! said...

There is a giveaway on my blog ;)


Pen Pen said...

Oh my! I love the vintage looks! It's my favorite-all those Etsy finds u have there are sensational. I've been wanting some lace trimmed socks myself! Ya know- I got a black vintage cocktail dress recently that I want to wear Christmas eve. It's short and it might snow, so I'll have to wear my long pink coat, scarf, and some vintage gloves too! YAY!
And- I've never seen that movie! I've heard of it, but I pictured Peggy Sue as the 'Curly Sue'-the girl in that LAME kids movie. I had no idea it involved time travel(pretty much my fav thing in stories)! I'm gonna make my boyfriend watch it with me if it's at the video store tomorrow!

Certain Creatures said...

Never seen this movie but I'm so curious! I love that heart locket in picture number one! ;)

Lovely post, Gabbi!
Happy saturday


Amelia said...

Merylu said...

Hello Gabbi! How are you? For me, these are busy days! Christmas is very close... :)
How beautiful inspirations! I love the drawing of the Prom dress :D
Have a wonderful Christmas time my dear friend!

Emmy said...

I find heart lockets completely irresistible. There seems to be a wonderful heart-warming story behind each one.

Clau! said...
