Growing up, my favourite movies to watch were Benny & Joon, So I Married An Axe Murderer, Fear, and of course, Empire Records. To me, Corey was just the ultimate babe, what with her lily white skin, pouty lips (Liv Tyler kills me to this day!) and that red bra I was painfully too young for. Her taste in men went from questionable (oh Rexy, you're so not sexy) to spot on (AJ for evah!) in the course of a day, and needless to say, I wanted to be her. Well thanks to the resurgence of 90's garb this year, now I can be... for Halloween at least. And even though Mr. AiF declined my countless pleas to be the AJ to my Corey (killjoy), this could be a great, last-minute couples costume as well. But be warned: If any haters question your taste in Halloween attire (or are too young to get the reference), simply look them square in the face and calmly state the following — "I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you, Warren."

  1. I had totally forgotten about this movie! I love that plaid is back and that you can wear this skirt as a costume and as an everyday piece! Also, I'll never forget my first pair of Doc Martens. Lol! XO, S

  2. Ugh, AJ? I was definitely more of a Lucas girl. "Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear"

  3. Aaaah, this is SUCH a good costume Vickie! Empire Records is one of my absolute favourite movies.

  4. AHHH EMPIRE RECORDS!!! I love love love that movie and so of course am completely impressed by this genius costume idea.

  5. This I get! So good!
