Angela Chase

So I was kind of wasting time yesterday when I realized that there was a lot of 90s tv shows that I was interested in watching but never had, like Twin Peaks, Clarissa Explains It All and My So-Called Life. I managed to find the first two episodes of My So-Called Life in full on youtube (I just finished watching episodes 3 and four in parts) and I have to say that I've developed a minor obsession. Clair Danes as Angela Chase is fantastically relatable not to mention her wardrobe of plaid dresses and oversize shirts is pretty much wonderful. Not to mention Jared Leto as the titular love interest? Be still my beating heart. It's practically a crime that it only ran for one season.


Oh, and you know what else is great about the 90s? Kate Moss's first magazine cover when she was 16! How positively adorable could she get?

I've only caught one episode of it "My So Called Life" and it was thoroughly enjoyable...speaking of inspirational fashions from TV/films, Jennifer Connolly in "A Beautiful Mind", very 40's!

Only yesterday I was telling my friend that I really wanted to watch My So-Called Life because I've heard so many great things about it!

A part of my heart will always belong to Brian Krakow. And as annoying as Rayanne was, her wardrobe had its moments.

I love that show too much for words.

We seem to be thinking alike most days...bleached jeans, now the 90's...this morning I was watching an old interview with Jarvis Cocker and thinking about how awesome the scene was in general back then, and now I come to visit your blog and see this! Very awesome.

i don't think you're using the word "titular" in the right context...

Rayanne Graff's style was soooo spectacular. And I loved her hair.

Motel Incroyable said...

Rayanne's style was incendiary. And I loved her hair.

Eyeliah @ stylesymmetry.com said...

Oh no. It's like me in high school all over again!

Twin Peaks is perhaps the best show from the 90's. (Coming from someone who actually grew up in the 90's and lived life when Kobain was still alive...etc.)

Heck my dog is named Agent Cooper.
And the owls are not what they seem.
