20 Reasons The ’90s Rocked

The ’90s was a big time in my life. When they started, I was a freshman in high school and when the final day of the decade rolled around, I was a college graduate trying to find my place in the “real world.” Needless to say, the era holds a special place in my heart… More »


Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Blast From The Past

My friend Brittany and I used to play MASH in our Mead composition books. Now I have the opportunity to mash my money into a wallet that looks like a Mead composition book. The whole thing is just blowing my mind. It’s also reminding me that I’m destined to live in a shack with eight… More »


Unlikely Style Inspiration: Spinelli From “Recess”

Did you guys watch “Recess” back in the day? It was my favorite cartoon for an embarrassingly long time. I watched it every week until it got cut from the Saturday morning line-up, at which point I believe I was a senior in high school. One of the best parts of the show was a… More »


Who Was Your First Celebrity Crush?

When I was about 10 years old, I thought Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez from The Sandlot was the perfect man. He was tall, dark, and handsome, sensitive, caring, and athletic. He had these deep brown eyes that my younger self could get lost in for hours. He had life goals (the major leagues) and he… More »


Fall TV Guide: Vanilla Ice On A Home Makeover Show?

Here’s an answer to the question “Whatever happened to Vanilla Ice?” Apparently, after his rise and even more spectacular fall, he’s become a house flipper. He rehabbed and sold his first house 15 years ago, and has done many since then. Now the DIY Network has made a show following him on his biggest… More »


“She-Ra” Turns 25

For the honor of Grayskull! Last week, the DVD collection of “She-Ra: Princess of Power” was released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the show. And yes, this will be what I’m getting every woman on my holiday gift list. Though episodes will also be available on iTunes and Hulu, I want the… More »


Why Did I Give That Away?

Once upon a time, when I was about 19, I found an amazing kilt-style mini skirt on a sale rack at the mall. It was a gorgeous green plaid wool with crisp pleats and a luxurious silk lining. Somehow it looked amazing with bare legs and a tank top or black tights and a cardigan. More »


1993 Time Machine: An Ode To Evan Dando And Juliana Hatfield

In honor of my tickets to see Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando in concert TOGETHER … TONIGHT, I thought we could take a stroll down my memory lane, circa 1993. All I have to do is hear any song from Become What You Are by the Juliana Hatfield Three, especially “Spin the Bottle,” which… More »


Florence + The Machine Get “Addicted To Love”

Florence + the Machine’s cover of “Addicted to Love” has been a regular on, oh, pretty much every mix CD I’ve made in the past six months. Something about Florence Welch’s voice just turns this classic ’80s track inside out. And then today, PopWrap posted a photo showing Florence in front of the iconic Robert… More »


“The Breakfast Club” Turns 25

The cast of “The Breakfast Club,” minus Emilio Estevez and John Hughes (who died recently), got together on Monday night for a screening to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. Ally Sheedy even brought her 16-year-old daughter to watch it with her. Wait. Has it really been 25 years since “The Breakfast Club” came… More »


R.I.P. The ’90s, We Miss You … Kind Of

I’ll take 94 seconds of the ’90s if that’s all I can get. I can’t believe I’m feeling even the littlest bit of nostalgia for the decade of my teen years. But let’s be honest, I’m kind of glad it’s over. It certainly is a bittersweet symphony, this life. [BuzzFeed] … More »


I’m Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley

Guess who has a new single out after 17 years? My favorite trench coat-wearing, Ray-Ban-rocking, ’80s crooner—Rick Astley. Check out his new single, “Lights Out,” after the jump. He wasn’t lying when he said he would never desert me. Well, I won’t desert him either. xo Rick. [BuzzFeed] … More »


“Like Mom, Like Dad” And Totally Awesome

First, there was “My Parents Were Awesome,” celebrating rad pictures of your parents looking cool when they were younger. Now comes a new nostalgia site celebrating and honoring the cool photos your parents took. “Like Mom, Like Dad” features people lovingly recapturing vintage family photos.

“It’s The ONE-ders, Not The O’Needers!”

Another genius T-shirt from BustedTees, which reminds us of the one-derful 1996 film “That Thing You Do.” [Busted Tees] … More »


Tavi Delivers The Goods: Vintage Sassy Porn

Yeah, yeah, yeah—so apparently Tavi’s blog got shut down for a hot second yesterday after she posted some racy fashion pics. She was back up and running in no time with an apology from Google explaining that she had triggered automatic filters. Nevertheless, the internets freaked out over the scandal. As for us, the better… More »


Are We Too Nostalgic?

This week, New York Times writer David Browne argued that Generation Y is all about nostalgia—and that we develop sentimental feelings about things at a much more rapid pace than Baby Boomers. I fully admit that even at the young age of 21, I feel nostalgic for my childhood all the time. And haven’t we… More »


Makeup: What’s With the Kid Stuff?

Most little girls (and even some boys!) have a moment where they play in mom’s makeup, pretending to be a grown-up woman. But is the reverse true as well: do grown women like to play in makeup that looks to be for little girls?

Barbie for Stila, featuring makeup mimicking Barbie’s looks over the… More »


10 Favorite Dolls From Our Childhood

I was kind of obsessed with Barbie dolls when I was younger. Although I had over 50 Barbies, my mom knew we couldn’t leave a toy store without visiting the Barbie aisle. I didn’t get a new doll most of the time, but sometimes she would buy me a new Barbie outfit, which is just… More »
