Poison Ivy | Friday, December 19 | 9:45 pm
Hollywood Theater

Prep yourself for this glamorous announcement. The final 2014 installment of Hollywood Theater’s Fashion in Film series is the tantalizing '90s cult hit Poison Ivy. Starring a nearly platinum blonde teenage Drew Barrymore (as Ivy, and the reason behind my bad '90s tattoos), who befriends nerdy Sara Gilbert (aka Darlene from Roseanne) before a lot of bad stuff in this drama-thriller goes down. There’s talk of suicide and cool music, Barrymore seducing Gilbert’s father (Tom Skerritt and eww!), and oh-so-many more things.

A true time capsule of the greatest decade in history leaves the view with a newfound respect for red trench coats. To quote my cohost Marjorie Skinner, “Barrymore underwent one of the juiciest aesthetic transformations ever captured on film: From a sexy, trashy biker jacket, a fried bleach job, and underage tattoos, to voluminous blowouts and sophisticated evening/suicide gowns. Ivy’s evolution inspired viewers to pick up the red lipstick and learn how to French twist.”

Alright gals and pals, this is your last chance at holiday bazaars for the season. And it’s sure to be a fun one. Taking over Dig a Pony for an afternoon, find a whole host of local vendors with gift worthy items like wooden rings from Sticks & Stones to Amber Smith’s beautiful hand-drawn calendar of  women in music (the Lisa Left-Eye Lopes is particularly good). Have a hot drink, squish into the photo booth, and shop away.
