I thought today that I would take a very European view on American Culture... More of a tonal mood piece than usual. A bit esoteric and subtle. See if you can draw connections between these disparate elements of the U.S.A--I am qualified to share a European impression on the U.S. because I studied abroad.

Close your mouth when you talk to me. Are you blinded by my hipness? The back pose is back and it's more over it than a cat is. On a quest for unrivaled uniqueness one might find themselves turning their back on the world, the mainstream world that is. Your journey is as important as your end destination: document your journey, in fact it's hipper than getting there. Back pose, is back and I think it might be here to stay.

Freedom, technology, gun powder. The latter elements constitute some of the major leaps forward, since the dawn of man. We, The Free, can use technology to blog, kill, or just hang out with our friends. It's very sexy and it's nice to do your thing--with a gun. Like, for example, you're at the beach with your lady and your car, it's nice, but it's missing something--a gun. Grab it. You don't even need to load it up, just having one around can become the missing link between your sense of anxiety and happiness of your own freedom.

If your boyfriend has a sweet mustache, and you secretly are jealous of his amaaazing soup catcher here's a post for you. This trend is way trendier than a normal man mustache. Previously the man mustache has been one of the few distinguishing factors between sexes of the very hip. After all you and your man share jeans and help one another rip holes in your tattered layers, you listen to the same music, eat (not much) together etc... So I ask with the emergence of the do it yourself stache, how will you tell one another apart?

It's been too long. Stop hiding your horns. These accessories are making a big comeback. If you haven't grown yours out yet you can get a pair and simply place them on top of your head. I believe Natasha Khan is responsible for bringing these back into style...and we love her for it. This also falls into the inversion theory of hipness which states "as technology increases the more hip nature (the wild) becomes."

There is no better way to express the irony of your situation. All your stuff, all your fucking stuff is so hip, please spread it around and take a picture. Go to a flea market, buy some more stuff, spread that around too and take a picture. The sum or your parts is indeed equal to its whole: but how would we know about the details of your total hipness without knowing the individual parts that go into completing the whole?

Protective Smoking Goggles have been around for a hot minute. Lots of great silhouettes out there. I thought I'd post a few new shapes that are little bit more fashion forward than what I've been seeing out there lately. Hope you enjoy!
