90s Style Crush: Parker Posey

Parker Posey is one of the first girls in the 90s that I thought was really awesome. I think the first time that I was really drawn to her style was in “Dazed and Confused”, one of the best movies of all time. Now I know that “Dazed” isn’t really 90s style per se but she was one of the first girls to roll with the boys and she did it well. She still does.

I’ve always thought of Jane Lane from Daria as the cartoon version of Parker Posey. Am I the only one?

ps. If you haven’t seen her film, “Party Girl” go watch it NOW.

90s Cartoon Fashion Icons

Yeah, we all know I love the 90s. The fashion trends of the decade can not only be found in real people, the cartoons got it right too. From Judy Funnie of Doug to Jane Lane of Daria these closets I would love to raid even now. Oh yeah there are some pretty dope mens characters too.

Take a look…

Judy Funnie, Doug’s older sister

If you haven’t seen the classic Nick toon Doug then please rent it now. She was a the snobby older sister who was way ahead of her time. With her hipster remarks, undercut, and sweet shades, this chick would have been in a loft downtown for sure.

Jane Lane, Daria’s best friend

What can I say about Jane Lane that hasn’t already been said. Her mom was a hippie, she had a hot brother and she was wearing tights under her shorts before you did. So there.

The Chipettes (90s)

Yeah, the 90s version. Not the computer animated one. The all girl band that was always better than Alvin and Chipmunks. Each with their own sense of badass style. Omg. Watch “The Chipmunk Adventure” movie. It owns.

Trent Lane

Only MTV could create such a hot cartoon character. For more on how I feel about Trent reference my previous post here.

Roger Klotz

He was the notorious bully on Doug, but I always love a dude in a motorcycle jacket. Look at that hair. Dope.

Rainbow Brite (and the Seven Color Kids)

I know. She’s technically 80s but I couldn’t leave out my favorite cartoon girl of all time! Any girl who travels with a posse this dope just can’t be left off the list.  Color-blocking what?!

Menswear Monday: Trent Lane aka. Mystic Spiral God.

You may be thinking one of two things: Why is she writing about a cartoon character?, and Why is she writing about Trent Lane again? Yes the answer to that second question is, yes, I have written about him before see post: http://fashiongrunge.com/2010/07/31/trent-lane-cartoon-crush-du-jour/

Yes. Trent Lane. Daria’s best friends brother. Everyone had one. My friend in 7th grade had the hottest older brother who used to do pull ups in his room whenever we were over. But I digress…

Let’s just see why he is literally the mascot for this blog.

oh thanks to my friend Marshall for rekindling the flame in me that I have for Trent Lane.

Trent Lane: Cartoon Crush du Jour…

I know that this may seem a little strange but some cartoon characters are totally hot. One that has always been on the top of my list is Trent Lane, older brother of Daria’s best friend Jane on the cartoon series. He was literally every girl’s dream guy. He played in a band, barely worked, always slept and when he did talk he had this raspy voice that sounded like he partied with Guns N’ Roses all night.

Just in case you need to be reminded on this crush, here are some screen caps that will jog your memory…

And here is a polyvore outfit inspired by Trent’s style:
