FEAR AND LOATHING! 90s OUTRAGEOUS TEEN MAKEOVERS

Who doesn’t remember those wild 90s makeover episodes of trashy talk shows ?? Well apparently, this is the first thanks to the one and only Jenny Jones!!!

We get so many nostalgic feels watching these bad ass teens rep their individual style to the conservative masses who just cannot fathom a lady wearing a leather jacket to a daycare, or cut-off jean shorts, and don’t get us started on baggy clothes!!!

The best part is – all these styles have become a normal part of most people’s daily style repertoire.

Punk, grunge, gang styles, urban vibes, valley girls, hippie vibes . . . its everything that we yearn for NOW!

It’s absolutely ridiculous how people try to control you through fashion (especially when they obviously lack the knack for it). It’s insane to think how people could get so offended by what you wear!

People like that need to take a hard look at themselves and realize what they lack is their own individuality. Choosing not to travel with the pack does not make you evil, no matter how many times society is trying to tell you otherwise.

I do have to say, there is one thing these ladies need to pipe up about:

 

Those bitches just don’t get fashion!!!

 

The best part is the ladies who are so pissed AFTER their makeover into what I guess was acceptable trendy teen clothing at the time (on loan from Urban Outfitters nonetheless) – these looks are just as much in style now, also – but definitely lack the originality and zest their true selves were invoking on the day to day.

This is the cyclical nature of our realm of course – {PAST} / {PRESENT} / {FUTURE} – all the same, really. The biggest challenge really is being true.

Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Be it to the max!!! You’ll be better off that way.

I promise!

 

 

In the meantime, enjoy this crazy video and feel the outrageousness of 90s teen fashion!

Until we meet again,

{STYLE WISE} The Twilight Zone!!! Black Leather Jackets [Season 5, Episode 18 – January 31, 1964]

Black Leather Jackets- The Twilight Zone- Style Wise- The Eye of Faith Vintage- 1964- 3

The second we found this episode of the classic TV series ‘The Twilight Zone” we could take our eyes off of it! Three leaders of the pack clad in “Black Leather Jackets” and black masks open off the episode in what turns into a salacious ride through 1960s paranoia, mystery, conspiracies, and of course, style.

Surely you can see where some of David Lynch’s inspirations may have arisen from in “Twin Peaks” as you watch Shelley Fabares’ ‘Ellen’ get picked up for a night ride by the adorably mysterious Lee Kinsolving as ‘Scott’ on a righteous 1960s motorcycle.

Nixon’s 1968 “Together” Campaign


Nixon’s 1968 ad campaign, famously entitled “Together“, appeared on the last episode of AMC’s “Mad Men” on Sunday. We found ourself as inspired and provoked by the campaign as Don Draper seemed to be as he flicked through images playing on the T.V. screen.

Nixon's The One- Vintage Pinback

 

Something definitely clicked with its simple message and use of still images because, if my history serves me correctly, Nixon would end up a victor in the race.

While he remains one of the more notorious figures in history, there’s no denying he is also one of the more fascinating. . . with a surprising influence of fashion of the moment. Check it out!
