  • Loving {Forever}: Twin Peaks

    December 1, 2013 | 5 Comments »

    In fashion, I think the decade in which you came of age is the one that solidifies your style. For me, that would be the ’90s, a decade of Grunge, plaid, Betsy Johnson dresses and Sassy magazine. I was a precocious weirdo living in the WASP-y suburbs of Connecticut when I discovered Sassy and it was like my adolescent bible. Another pivotal player in the world of teenage outcasts growing up in the ’90s was the show Twin Peaks and Sassy published an editorial that perfectly captured that twisted-schoolgirl-in-the-Northwest, Twin Peaks style. To this day, it’s one of my favorite spreads ever, and, thanks to the wonder of the internet (and the tumblr site Sassy Scans), I was able to see it again!
    Twin Peaks appealed to my teenage self because it was almost as dramatic as I was. I used to sit in the dark in my room, listening to the soundtrack: the eerie synth strains of Angelo Badalamenti made it easier to pretend my life was infinitely more interesting and dark thank I could ever be.
    This edition of Loving {Forever} is dedicated to Twin Peaks, where the pie is always cherry, everyone leads a double (or triple) life and the owls are not what they seem.

    1. I love Twin Peaks and David Lynch. I had such a big crush on Kyle MacLachlan and I channeled some serious Audrey Horne outfits when I was younger.

      Ahhhhh love, love, love! Serious style inspiration right here, I wanna wear the outfit in the third photo!

      I loved Sassy and Twin Peaks too! When we moved to the PNW (Salem OR) when I was 13, I remember being disappointed that it wasn’t as woodsy and mysterious as Twin Peaks.

        Hah! Yeah, Salem definitely skews towards the suburban. My husband is from there! Luckily, you are never too far from the woods in Oregon.
