flannel: now with less irony

flannel: now with less irony

yes. the day in the early 90s that Vogue was doing grunge spreads of basic flannel shirts, baggy dresses and combat boots for 300 kabillion times the price of what we were all buying in thrift stores was a dark (yet vaguely satisfying) day in the lives of rebellious, teenaged thrift whores everywhere. this one with Kristen McMenamy was my favorite:

but how can you stay mad at cozy flannel shirts feminized with chic belts, layering, girly accessories and shapely trousers for nipply fall weather? i love unexpected dressy or metallic details too.

    Awww! I love flannel, it’s an essential comfort fabric! (Flannel jammies, flannel sheets!) Now there’s some amazing, stylish flannel pieces out there for fall, I’m so excited!

  • I tried on a feminine flannel shirt from Old Navy (figured if I was going for the trend, I’d keep it cheap) but just felt so dowdy in it that I didn’t buy it. Too many bad fashion memories from high school, I think.

    And I *love love love* the new banner. My post today is about her, but mostly about how I have tickets to see her next month.
