Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Nasty Guys: Matt Dillon
The Outsiders is one of our ultimate ’80s flicks, mainly because it featured a particularly hot gang of greasers that included a young Tom Cruise and Rob Lowe. The babe that really stole our hearts, though, was Matt Dillon. The movie launched his career and we’ve been swooning over him (and those eyebrows!) ever since. Whether he’s shirtless, leather-clad or…um…shirtless, he’ll always be one of our favorite bad boys.
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Nasty Gals Do It Better: In The Easy Rider Zip Shorts
Olivia of Lust For Life goes femme fatale in UNIF’s Easy Rider Zip Shorts paired with a python print blouse. Cat-eye shades, a supersized clutch, stacked metal bangles and buckled-up pumps top off her look with head-to-toe edge.
Tuesday, August 14, 2012 Studio Soundtracks: Sounds Like Teen Spirit
As kids of the Nineties, we’ll forever have a weakness for the albums that played on repeat in our bedrooms while we
chatted on AOL did homework. From Nirvana unplugged to The Smashing Pumpkins, here are a few of the videos we stayed up late to watch on MTV.
“The Man Who Sold The World” by Nirvana
“This was one of my all-time favorite Nirvana songs growing up, and that’s saying a lot. But seriously, how could you not love Kurt Cobain covering a Bowie classic?”
“No Rain” by Blind Melon
“One of the ultimate feel good songs of the ’90s.I’m pretty sure it’s impossible not to have visions of bumblebees dancing in your head as soon as it comes on.”
“Violet” by Hole
“Hole has inspired everyone from rebellious ’90s teens to Tavi Gevinson and Meadham Kirchhoff, and for good reason. Love her or hate her, there’s no denying Courtney Love takes girly riot to a whole new level.”
“Talk Show Host” by Radiohead
“No offense to The Cardigans, but this is definitely the best song from my worn-out Romeo + Juliet soundtrack. It has all the angst that embodies Leo Dicaprio’s love-may-kill attitude in the movie.”
“New French Girlfriend” by The Auteurs
“In the same vein as Oasis, these Brits exude dreamy alt-pop vibes. “New French Girlfriend” is a favorite of mine from their second album, Now I’m A Cowboy.”
“Tonight, Tonight” by The Smashing Pumpkins
“Hands down one of the coolest videos and songs EVER! Thats all.”
Tuesday, August 14, 2012 Right Now: Tough Love
Whether with an oversized tee or skin-tight dress, a little leather never fails to give any look an instant edge. Lately we’ve been looking beyond our trusty moto jacket and filling our closets with everything from bustiers and baseball caps to supersized clutches and skater skirts. Hey, we’ve even tried a biker tuxedo (a moto jacket with leather pants, duh). Just remember – it’s all in the details and finding your perfect balance.
