Throwback Thursday: “Drugstore Cowboy”

Time for another throwback to the days when new music and movies for me ran rampant. I often get discouraged in times today because it seems I’m always looking toward. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen Drugstore Cowboy and thank goodness Netflix has it up on Instant Watch. Told from the perspective of…

Throwback Thursday: Sonic Youth + Marc Jacobs in 1993

Everyone knows that Marc Jacobs was notoriously fired from Perry Ellis after his S/S ’93 Grunge collection. Little did we know that almost 20 years later the grunge fashion trend would re-emerge and seem to last longer than ever before.

Film Style File: Last Days by Gus Van Sant

  Gus Van Sant’s film, Last Days is a visual portait of a troubled grunge rocker bearing more than just an uncanny resemblance to the late frontman of Nirvana. While he never names Kurt Cobain by name, the likeness is unmistakable. The film which was released in 2005, was met with a substantial amount of…

Menswear Monday: Oi! by Bruno Staub

Even thought it’s Labor Day here in the States I thought it only fitting to do a post today. This editorial titled “Oi!” can be found in this months issue of Out Magazine. It plays with the style of the post punk skinhead movement in England during the 80s. I’ve written before about the film…

Throwback Thursday: Blossom

I’ve just done a little mini post on Blossom before, so it doesn’t hurt to pay homage to the girl who inspired the denim flower hat of the 90s. Blossom just shaped the 90s awkward girl trend and made it super cool for kids like me to dress like a spaz. How can we forget…
