Optimal Minimal : Proenza Schouler Resort 2013

I’m not one for reviewing many collections on the blog these days. It’s just something that doesn’t occur to me much anymore. The other day I was browsing the archives of the blog and it seems that since I left New York I have become a lot less wordy and more of a “visual” writer…

90s Movie Style Crush: Gregg Araki’s “Nowhere”

Now, I’m very aware that I have a strange and often pretty out there taste in films. While its true that I worship the style and overall vibe of the 90s every waking moment I’m alive, I’m also drawn to campy movies about various subcultures. I think I have  seen the movie “Nowhere” about 100…
