Label Love: The Gap

It was 1987. I was just entering the 7th grade and I was a sucker for everything Reebok and Gap. I was a tiny little yuppie in training. While my love for Ronald Reagan and hi-top aerobic sneakers in every color of the rainbow waned, my love of the Gap did not. I still love the Gap.

Vintage Birthdays: 11/5-11/11

Vintage Birthdays are one of my most common posts, I love to celebrate all different walks of vintage life from musicians to actors to designers and models. My only bummer is it’s just too time consuming to keep up with a post a day. And some days, it’s tough to find a birthday that fits my wants to exhibit vintage styles. So from now on I’ll be moving Vintage Birthdays to a weekly feature on Mondays. Here’s the roundup for this week – November 5th – November 11th.

Joni Mitchell – Musician – November 7, 1943
