advent season: day twenty-one; cheer!

[cheer.jpg]

i'm craving a bit of old school cheerleader style for 2009. 1950s meets late 1980s; a combination of good girl knee socks and grubby track tops.

The elements: old track tops and jackets jackets, denim, striped tee shirt dresses, knapsacks, wayfarer clubmasters, neckties ala colonel saunders, initials badges, sports socks, white thermal tops, dungarees dresses, plaid and sheepskin jackets, stiff collars.

The poster girl: Drew Barrymore in POP magazine. She's your more adventurous friend, she smokes behind the bike sheds and borrows her older brother's clothes and battered converse.

The hair: Cute short bob, or worn wavy with a few pincurls. Simple ponytails left from the day before.

The soundtrack: Something to bang your head to.

The film: If Grease missed it's curfew.

mmm when prep gets a little hardcore that's when i feel i could possibly take it on... the chucks, the raybans, the 90s style grungy clothing with oversized jeans, sweatshirts and tees... all sound very appealing.

great post!

V cute!! Russh magazine did a gorgeous editorial a few issues ago with a similiar sort of feel (not as dark as Pops though) all athletic tees, soft focus, warm light, iceblocks, coke, whistles etc. So beautiful. You should def have a look!
