So, last night I recalled my adolescence when Mr. Newsfeed and I watched Dirty Dancing on Netflix on demand. For those of you who
didn't watch this movie at every childhood sleepover haven't seen it, it's the coming of age story of a girl who goes to stay at a summer retreat with her family, meets a dreamy dance instructor, and learns that there's more to life than the foxtrot.

In order to live out this 1960's summer camp in what I call my very rich fantasy life, I'm going to need the following items:
|A Pair of amazing dancing shoes (these are Lavin via Barneys.com)|
|A perfect but demure frock with which to capture the attentions of the dreamy dance instructor. (This one is by David Szeto via)|
|A flouncy, dainty number that will spin when I spin. This one comes in pink, kids. Yup. It's by Rochas via.|
|Okay, so this Kate Spade bag isn't 100% necessary to the whole illusion, but I want it because it will likely make spring come a little faster because of it's pinkness.|
|Goodness help me, I never wanted a single Ked while Marissa from the "O.C." was hocking them, but I want them after watching this movie. The whiter, the better. find them here.|
Watch the movie.
Break out the Ked's if you've got 'em.
Do a mean dance along to "I've Had the Time of My Life."
Leave me a comment letting me know what movie reminds you of your childhood.
