Heathers: Veronica Sawyer

While Heather Duke might have my favorite color palette with the focus on green, I’m much more of a Veronica Sawyer than any of the other main characters in Heathers. She objectively has the best dialogue, plot line, and character arc in this film.

In 8th grade, I hung out with 3 Erins and all of them also had last names that started with the letter G. We didn’t play croquet, but we did go to parties, cause drama at school with our interpersonal politics, and probably wanted to kill each other at various points of our “friendship.” I guess I should be grateful that I never hooked up with a J.D., and I was left to writing as an outlet for my angst.

Outfit: Blue Velvet Long Sleeve Avon Dress I used a belt (not pictured) to pull the top out a little bit, shorten the dress, and give it a little shape.

Blue Tights (seen below)

Shoes: Blue Leather Cutout Mossimo Ballet Flats

Another accessory that I would have used (if I had one) was a monocle!

Accessories: Navy Blue Vintage Lassy Handbag I inherited from my grandmother.

I don’t usually like handbags and prefer purses that are crossbody or over-the-shoulder to keep my hands free when I’m out and about. However, I have a few vintage handbags I inherited from my grandmother, and they are all awesome!

I socialize and play croquet with my three friends who are all named Heather. We each have own color palette that corresponds to our croquet color. I’m blue.

I have a decent relationship with my parents, but I only really see them long enough for a quick snack before I’m on to my next thing. “Great pâté, but I’m gonna have to motor.”

I start going with this dark and brooding fellow named J.D. He says things like: “Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling.” and “Our love is God. Let’s go get a Slushie.” I’m so infatuated that I do a lot of things I normally wouldn’t, when I’m with him.

“Dear Diary: Heather told me she teaches people ‘real life.’ She said, real life sucks losers dry. You want to fuck with the eagles, you have to learn to fly. I said, so, you teach people how to spread their wings and fly? She said, yes. I said, you’re beautiful.”

When people start dying, I realize I want cool guys (like JD) out of my life.
