    Ooh That Was My Jam: Swans Crossing

    Like many of us, I grew up loving shows about the wealthy and their ESCANDALO ways. Dynasty was obviously a favorite even though it was for adults, and there was the more kids-oriented Beverly Hills Teens. By 1992, I was in junior high and deep into the Brenda/Dylan/Kelly love triangle on Beverly Hills, 90210. Yet, I craved even …

    1980’s Movie Heroines – Teen Witch

    A while ago, I made a promise to do an article on everyone’s favorite cinematic gem, Teen Witch. Finally the day has come for me to put a banana clip in my hair and ~cast a spell on you~. Because of this, I’ve decided to do another fashion-in-film series where I Polyvore outfits inspired by …
