Wild Style.








I didn't post much this weeked, because I spent Saturday and some of Sunday, cleaning out my mother's garage, most of which was filled with all of my stuff! It is always nice to go through old things and rediscover old gems. One gem in particular is this book that I found in college for 99 cents at an old warehouse sale. It is called "Wild Style." Before there was Japan's "Fruits" the authors of this book documented all of the cool kids with style, in the streets of Manhattan. This book was published in 1984 during the height of 80s punk DIY style! In the book there is a guide to the latest hairstyles, which are actually pretty current (Alice Dellal, your do has already been done.) my fave are the shots of Pat Field doing her makeup in the mirror. You can find a copy of this book on amazon.com, I highly suggest you get yourself a copy!!!! By the looks of this months NYLON, it's all about the 80s again YALL!!!!

this is such a gem. Have you seen the movie Wild Style? It is so great. At first I thought this was in reference to it but then I realized it was another 80's treasure. Funny how the 80's is so back. I just can't do some 80's trends now because I did them in the 80's:)
