Look Lit: Anne of Green Gables

A longstanding tradition among the girls in my family is to pop a bag of popcorn on a cold rainy night, put on our pj’s and grab our VHS copy of “Anne of Green Gables” (the Kevin Sullivan version). Yes, I said VHS. Meaning we have to drag out the VCR and remember how to work it. For those who don’t understand my old school terminology, do forgive me!

Anne (with an “e”) endlessly inspired me with her carrot-red hair and her sharp-witted tongue. Not to mention her passion for puffed sleeves and tragic poetry. Now that was a girl I could be “bosom friends” with!

  1. My fave childhood characters are deux: Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz – I used to pretend that a tornado was coming! And Nancy Drew – though neither of them are style icons for me. Nancy was in the books – I had this great Audrey Hepburn meets Sherlock Holmes vibe for her clothes, but the movie just made her seem frumpy ; ( Spa wishes, Candy
