Pop culture mentioned by the Style Rookie

It has been utterly fascinating to watch the changed in Tavi, the style rookie, over the past couple years. Lately, it's been less about high fashion and more about self-fashion and discovery. She reminds me of the kind of introspective teen that I read about in all these coming-of-age novels. Except, less try-hard-y than some of the teens. She also dresses really fucking cool. Sometimes her outfits look a bit shapeless (nothing wrong with surrendering shape) but inspirational. In her latest post, her outfit looks inspired, and it makes her look almost 16.


Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie; Joan Jett and Cherie Currie; David Bowie; Alia Shawkat, Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart as Robin*, Cherie and Joan

As a kind of pre-list-note, I'd like to add Skins (UK, duh) and The Runaways (both the film and the music). And maybe Grease. And Stargirl. And Rats Saw God. And Mystic Pizza. And Every brat pack movie.

I think I'm going to have a separate post just for Skins (UK) photos and collages.
