Style File: Jemina Pearl

tumblr_lt99t1rPcu1qh4bmwo1_500I’m so obsessed with girl fronted bands. Much like the unicorn, they are reveled as such forces of nature especially in such a male dominated world. Which brings me to Jemina Pearl, formerly of the garage punk band Be Your Own Pet out of Nashville. They broke up a few years ago and its one band that I regret not seeing before they split. For a brief while she played in Ultras S/C which I’m also a fan of, but basically she has the sickest style. Now she’s working on some solo projects but for now lets take some visual and sound inspo from this “pearl” of garage style wisdom.

Style Crush: Matthew Gray Gubler

tumblr_static_style-hot-tea-tuesday-matthew-gray-gubler2

Aside from the usual grungy dudes that occupy space my subconscious, I do live for an awkward nerdy type guy. Case and point: Matthew Gray Gubler of the tv show Criminal Minds.  His first love is film making and since has directed seven episodes of Criminal Minds. Upon deeper exploration I discovered that he was also a model with DNA and has done some print modeling and runway work, and is a pretty incredible artist.  Looking at his online personality, he seems to be the goofiest and probably one of the few actors who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

90s Crush: Claire Danes

323feebe538c772165796c398730219e

In the 90s there was no better tv role model than Angela Chase from My So Called Life. Played by Claire Danes to a tee, she really encapsulated what it was like to be an extremely introspective  teenager with a crush on Jared Leto. Yes, of course many of us still haven’t gotten over the fact that she got to make out with him, but I digress. See also my post on her amazing tv best friend, Rayanne Graff.

After being the voice of a generation she starred in one of my favorite movies of all time, “Romeo + Juliet” with Leonardo DiCaprio. I still watch it to this day and remember every word. I gathered some great 90s recaps of Claire Danes including this gem of a YouTube video with her and Jared Leto on MTV in ’95. Perfect end to the week I’d say.

Couple Crush: Ainsley & Sebastien of Sticks and Stones Agency

Ainsley-Sebestien_0121

 

When I stumbled upon Sticks and Stones Agency one day while browsing Instagram, I was immediately obsessed with finding out more. In my research I learned that this Australian fashion/styling agency started by Ainsley Hutchence and her now husband Sebastien Fougere represented some of the best cult brands in the industry today. Not only do they have one of the best jobs ever but they are quite a fashion inspiration pair themselves. They documented their trip to America with photographer friend, Janneke Storm (who is also one badass talent herself). I can’t help but be inspired by their awesome technicolor grunge style each time their photos appear on my insta feed.

90s Crush | Liz Phair

f3a5d62c929c6c2a55b8915d2aa917b9

Ok over the past month I’ve seriously enjoyed listening to my fair share of angry girl rock. Call it sign of the times. Then while trying to come up with a post idea I was listening to my Spotify mix and Liz Phair came on. Now, I wasn’t too deep into Liz Phair when I was younger ,but I knew a song here or there. I remember what I was doing when I first heard “Polyester Bride” from her whitechocolatespaceegg album. I was listening to the local alternative rock station, (yes, that we listened to in our rooms ad nausea, because that was where the music was) and was in my room and first heard a taste of Liz Phair.

I delved into her music catalog and found, “Exile in Guyville”, another album much in the vein of “Jagged Little Pill” on the angst level. Now she isn’t textbook “grunge” but she certainly has the spirit of the 90s girl. Doesn’t give a fuck and makes what she wants type girl. Enjoy and discover Liz Phair.

Style File : Rooney Mara

tumblr_mv10oq6n6d1qgl9edo1_500

Over the past few years I’ve come to really love and draw inspiration from Rooney Mara. I first saw her in “The Social Network” a few years ago and then did even more research into her career.

One of my favorite periods in her career was when she was promoting the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. Her role as Lisabeth Salander was mind blowing.  This is truly  the best blend of current inspiration with a grunge edge of the 90s.
