Fro Yo

I have thick, curly hair that I inherited from my father. My mother had medium weight straight hair so she just didn’t know what to do with it when I was a kid, so she decided to cut it short into a sort of Q-Tip mullet that I had frequently trimmed and blown out just like Tony Manero.

I let my hair grow long as I got older but I never really learned how to do it and sometimes I just want to live naturally and free and rock a white girl fro. I dig it, man. I dig it.

Fairytale Fantasy

Lately, I’m being drawn to these romantic, ethereal with an edge sort of styles. Kind of a mix of Victorian England with some 70’s Gunne Sax, a splash of 90’s babydoll grunge, a pinch of 80’s New Romantic and topped with some Laura Ashley. It could be side effects from binge watching three seasons of Once Upon a Time lately. I am sooooo smitten with the fantasy.

I want to buy all the lacy bib blouses I can find. And look forlorn for Mr. Darcy.

Vintage Character: Angela Chase

My So-Called Life might’ve been the best show ever. I will never understand why it lasted less than six months on tv. It has a cult following now and the fashion is just that perfect mix of Seattle grunge that we all wanted to attain in the mid-90’s. Claire Danes as Angela Chase was perfection.

Vintage Character: AHS Coven

American Horror Story’s newest season just started a few weeks ago and this time it’s centered on witches. I have to say ever since a family Halloween trip to Salem, Massachusetts and seeing The Craft, I’ve been kind of enamored with the world of the conjuring enchantresses.

Seems witches are having a comeback. Joining American Horror Story: Coven, there’s The Witches of East End on tv and recently Beautiful Creatures in the theaters. I’m sure there’s more sorcery on the horizon, but I’m more interested in the clothes. ;)

2013 Bonnie & Clyde

I recently hear about the cable miniseries event for Bonnie & Clyde coming in December and I am so excited! Not only do I totally dig the story of the infamous duo but the costumes are looking to be pretty epic.

I suggest becoming a fan of the miniseries on Facebook just for all the eye candy they post. And of course watching it! December 8th showing simultaneously on Lifetime, History and A&E channels.
