High School Cheerleader

In high school I secretly wanted to be a cheerleader...but I never was. Today I decided to live out my high school fantasy by wearing my interpretation of a high fashion, high school cheerleading uniform. (Complete with my hot quarterback BF’s varsity jacket!) Aw damn, isn’t that a great idea for an editorial? Your stereotypical high school social circles interpreted through a stylized eye. The band geeks, the stoner kids, the brains, the jocks, the populars...you know, the usual line up. When I was in High School, everyone wanted to be popular. It was all about how many zillions of BFF’s you had, how many parties you could conceivably attend in a single Friday night, how many Abercrombie and Fitch items you could pile onto your body at once, and just how stick straight you could flat iron that long and (poorly) highlighted hair. This was the epitome of “cool” during my days in high school...and everyone wanted in. I don’t know what’s been going on since graduation day, but it seems that younginz these days want nothing to do with “cool” in this traditional sense. Has anyone else noticed this strange phenomenon? Is unpopular the new popular? Like, for example, if “She’s All That” (My fave movie in HS) were re-released in theaters today, Laney Boogs wouldn’t need a makeover OR FPJ’s help to become Prom Queen! She’d be ruling the school just the way she was! A bohemian-hipster chick with wayfarer glasses who’s about to go off to art school in NYC...I always knew you were just ahead of your time, Laney ;)

Vintage bomber jacket. Custom vintage crop top. Vintage skirt. Charlotte Russe pumps.

Until next time,

  1. Dear fellow twenty-something at home on a Saturday night,

    So I recently discovered my Letterman's jacket in the back of my closet and wondered if I could pull it off sans football game. Turns out, with an adorbz crop top, it totally works.

    I fucking love the way you experiment with fashion. You're all that.

    xx, E

    p.s. I was *so* that girl who triple-flat-ironed her poorly highlighted hair. I even wore Abercrombie on my t-shirts for awhile. Ew.

  3. Great theme for that outfit, especially the rather down to earth shoes match amazingly.
    Like!

  6. Love this look, especially the crop top!

    I think the "unpopular" are having their time in the spotlight.

  10. I LITERALLY want to steal this entire look right off of you!!! And it was the same way when I was in high school....... The bleached blondes with the fake tans were "cool" but I don't think it will ever be any different in that small town haha!!!

  24. this skirt is amazing! I would have never thought to pair it with a track jacket, looks amazing!

  25. Holy shit, this is amazing and you are gorgeous! And it is so funny, I recently rented She's All That and I also recently watched 21 Jumpstreet and how cool is portrayed in both movies is so different. I have shitty taste in movies so of course I enjoyed 21 Jumpstreet and how they captured how different high school must be for kids today

  26. So true- Laney was so hipster, and she didn't even know it!

    Love the look- quirky and fun!

  29. Love love love this outfit. that crop top with that skirt, AHH it's to die for! I have become obsessed with this blog. I love the commentary on style from two different perspectives because even though you both have your own thing going on it flows so well on a singular blog. I especially love when you both focus on the same theme and come up with your own interpretation. Looking forward to more greatness from the two of you!

  33. Wonderful interpretation! The bomber jacket totally sold me on it. This look actually reminds me of the Pink Ladies and Grease except, like you said, more high fashion rather than your run of the mill vintage look.

  34. It looks fantastic! Most cheerleading uniforms have short skirts, but you really pulled it off with the long skirt! What’s more, it’s something one can wear over casual events, particularly homecomings and such, and set off a nostalgic feeling to everyone who sees it.
