back to school

These would be more appropriate for fall, but as long as Fashion Week is half a year ahead, I can be a few months behind, right? Primary colors, school team t-shirts, Letterman jackets, and angst: Unknown source, Caroline Trentini by Venetia Scott for AnOther, LIFE Magazine photo archive, CdG ad, Stephen Malkmus in a snappy tie, Meryl Streep and her cheekbones, Bikini Kill, Ugly Girls by Daniel Clowes, Ed Ruscha, Freaks and Geeks, and Sleater-Kinney.

Mina Jade said...

Meryl looks awesome as ever - she is quite a looker now, and she was so delicately beautiful in her thirties. She is so great - she should have won another Oscar for years, a shame that younger cuties (much, much less talented than her) fish it away from her.

The Clothes Press said...

Haha, nice. Meryl Streep looks gorgeous there...

I say just wear whatever. It doesn't matter if you're a few months behind. 90% of the population doesn't even notice.

When I see Meryl looking that young, all I can think of is the potion scene from Death Becomes Her:

Ms Streep looked mighty hot.

Engreida said...

The cheerleader with her skirt up has a very real body. I like that...

Fashion Intel said...

I loved high school and I still love Sleater Kinney. Have you thought about starting a feminist club at your HS? I did awhile back and called it "the young femmes."

mascarah said...

The ad with "the past sucks" panel is from a comic I recognize by Megan Kelso. If you haven't seen her stuff, check it out. She did an amazing series of comics called "girlhero" in the early 90s, and she has a couple of collections as well. My favorite book is called Queen of the Black Black.

Espen said...

Holy crap, that's Meryl Streep! The photo of her eerily resembles Uma Thurman.

Sarah Peters said...

WOW this is my high school years (1993-1997) encapsulated in a single blog post.

By the way, I love your blog. I *especially* love that your blog led me to Kathleen Hanna's. You are a rad lady.

Miss Auditore said...

Meryl <3
I love Meryl and your style !
You are spectacular !

Lindsay said...

I like the mix of preppy and grunge. And I LOVE Freaks and Geeks! That show is completely hilarious :)
