prehistoric fashion blogging

4 May

Ah, the white birkenstocks. I got a lot of flack for those but they were all the rage in Cutie magazine in 1997. I used to have a “subscription” to Cutie from a Japanese book store called Zakka that was off West Broadway in Soho. Really they just put one aside for me every two weeks when the shipment came in. I would have my Japanese friend Rie read all the captions to me for the street style shots and they were pretty amazing. Girls who dressed in Misfits sweaters with plaid bondage pants & eyeliner that looked like it was drawn with Sharpee would be revealed as nursing students who liked puppies. I think at this point my apartment was in shambles because I had just dropped out of my junior year at Parsons & was biding time before moving back to Seattle. I look like I’d been crying. I probably was. I was in the middle of suppressing a nervous breakdown.
