Pink Shirts and Burn Books: Mean Girl's 10th Anniversary

It was ten years ago, while in a movie theater in Europe, I saw a trailer for Mean Girls. As a twelve-year-old, I immediately became captivated by the comedy that would take the actress I related to in Parent Trap and turn her into an undercover conspirator to destroy her schools viciously vain and fake (plastic) group of girls. One would think that a film about bullies, teen angst, and immature banter would be pointless, but with Tina Fey's witty writing and a cast that could make even the most vapid of people (here's to you Karen Smith and your weather fortune-telling boobs), into iconic and quotable movie characters, this became a hit and now a classic. Dare I say it is ...fetch?

Based off the book Queen Bee's and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, the film followed Lindsay Lohan's character Cady Heron as she transitions from her former sheltered life in Africa to the very social hierarchy filled one that is high school. Similar to Winona Ryder's role in Heathers, Cady catches the eyes of some powerful, well more like feared and hated, girls at school and is taken under their wing. She begins to spy on the trio played by Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert, after speaking with her new close friends Damien and Janice. What begins as harmless fun soon turns into a game of destruction involving foot cream, fattening bars, and one very pink burn book. Let's not forget those lethal school buses.

With the 10th Anniversary of Mean Girls strutting its way here this Wednesday, Lucy & Camilla has decided to celebrate with a week-long event. Everyday I will be posting a different article on fashion related and miscellaneous topics surrounding Mean Girls. From "How to's" about acquiring the famed wardrobe of your favorite characters to a special Wednesday post on wearing pink, this week is going to be fetch! Maybe I should stop saying fetch. What the heck! Regina George isn't nearby so who cares?

So grab your over sized pink shirt, ask the cute boy in front of you what today's date is, and become best friends with Glen Coco because this week is Mean Girls Week and there is nothing getting in your way. Unless you fall into a trash can.

Here are some great quotes to start the week out!
