I’m not one of those people that started feeling old once I entered my thirties but coming to the realization that The Craft was released almost twenty years ago was a little jarring. I’ll process that later. For now I want to talk about how formative this flick was when I was a witchy 90s teen in a smallish town. Clueless was already out and it was a big deal but for me it was lacking in the sullen teenager vibes. It totally reflected the majority of kids around me who were preppier, sportier, trendier but I wanted smeary makeup and chunky boots. Cue The Craft, which hit the ground running and took over the lives of my friends and I. We couldn’t get enough of the eyeliner and no fucks attitudes, and it was refreshing and reassuring to see girls who looked more like us. It definitely contributed to me embracing myself as the kind of person that burns a lot of incense and spends free time in the woods.
Around Halloween this flick gets put back on the roster and I thought The Craft would be the perfect #wcw to lead us all into October.
It’s that time of year when stores start pushing fall fashion on us, as if I want to look at cardigans while I’m sitting here generating a ton of boob sweat and eating popsicles. Alas, I browse anyway, sweaters are inevitable and boots are my jam. Maybe I’m actually into it. Okay I am.
The fashion world is driven by trend forecasters and at some point a few companies decided that this season was going to be all about the 70s. Skinny jeans are out and high-waisted flares are in, despite years of magazines telling fat girls they shouldn’t wear them. I have always been inspired by the style of this time, and especially by Stevie Nicks. Her witchy vibes never wavered, through disco, punk, grunge, or whatever was hot at the time.
There is so much that could be said about Stevie’s incredible life. She’s written some of the most beloved songs and inspired so many woman to be whoever they want to be but also be tough. Frankly, she’s a living goddess.
We all know her music so I wanted to share a gorgeous series of Polaroid photos that Stevie has posted on her website. Hazy and ethereal, they’re some legit inspo for getting into the fall mood.
