Weekend Vintage: Smells Like Teen Spirit

The 90s were a really amazing time - everything was acceptable; people felt free, fashion was strange and music was phenomenal. It feels like it wasn’t that long ago, but watching an episode of Seinfeld always reminds me just how long ago it was. I will say that I am happy some famously 90s things have not made a return (body suits and round sunglasses, I am looking in your direction,) but the last few years have definitely shown a revival of many 90s fashion favorites. Walking the streets of Brooklyn, you can’t help but notice an homage to the decade of Easy-E and Jane’s Addiction.

Maximum Balloon - Groove Me ft. Theophilus London

I was just over at ModCloth and they posted Groove Me on their blog - which made me watch the vid again and eventually dig through my Theophilus London collection. This track from Maximum Balloon (Dave Sitek/TV on the Radio) is aesthetically awesome. Don’t get me wrong - it is a jam in its own musical right - but I just love looking at it. And let’s not forget the video superstar: Mr. Theophilus London. I fell head-over-heels in love with Theo as soon as he started showing up all over theFADER. I am particurlarly in love with this Brooklyn tour for Nike and of course, Accept the New. It must be painful to be so cool; he had no choice though - his name is Theophilus.

The Best Year Ever

Happy 2011, everyone! The start of a new year is a reasonable time to pick out a new calendar - so I thought I would suggest a few that would be easy on your eyes for one whole year. (Calendars are a big commitment; might as well be pretty!) I wish all of you nothing but the best in 2011.
