Fashion Over Reason: Nostalgia

Nostalgia

I know that this editorial is going to make the rounds in the blogosphere, but i simply had to post and write about this. When i saw these images, it immediately brought me back to 1997, after Cher Horowitz's influence had spread like wildfire and when Clueless, the tv series, came out. I vividly remember sifting through my september 'Teen magazine and being so taken with an editorial that bore a striking similarity in colors, styling and setting to these Georgia May photos. This is pure nostalgia for me. And isn't it just a little bit ironic that miss Jagger was only a toddler then? Plus it's kind of making me itch for fall fashion, believe it or not.





The influence:

I love Cher Horowitz, I'm pretty sure I can trace my deep love for knee socks back to her.

This editorial is AMAZING!! so many bright hues and cozy layers: irresistible. fall fashion is bar none. and Jagger was perfectly cast in these. it reminded me of the September editorials of Teen Vogue. i used to love those: so optimistic :) xx
