So what happens to the kid who spends his dreams where the wild things are? He grows up to wear Junya Watanabe, duh. We all know the book and some of us enjoyed the movie, although, I don’t count myself one of those that enjoyed the film. After being punished for running around the house in his wolf costume, he imagines a world entirely separate from his bedroom and comes across the wild things. The wild things crown him the king after he stares them down and they dance all night long (all night lonngggg, all niggghtt). Soon though, Max misses his home and is back in his room. You know any kid that can pull off a wolf costume and be crowned king of the wild things would have some sick style and would wear his favorite jeans and sneakers over and over. Right brain for the win.

Fair credit: This post was Kristina’s idea. We went to college together, she writes for Gawker and if you think I’m snarky…you should meet her and her friends. SNARKTRONS.

Good Monday morning to you all. Holden Caulfield was the very first post I ever did on Textbook. Somewhere down the line it got added into my tag line and now it’s kind of a thing. I haven’t styled him since the original post on 9/1/09 so here we go again. For those of you who don’t have a solid idea of who Mr. Caulfield is, I encourage you to read The Catcher in the Rye and get wise. But for our purposes, just imagine he is a bitter Upper East Side 16 year old aching to get out of his poor little rich boy life. What up #WHITEBOYPROBLEMS.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Don’t judge me if I post a bunch of pictures from my holiday later.

Everybody knows Tink, she’s the loveable, somewhat sarcastic and overall bitchy fairy from Peter Pan. Like most people unable to express themselves, Tink becomes wildly jealous when Peter starts paying Wendy attention. Shocking. Anyway, she also is the one who allows Peter and his cronies to fly with her magic pixie dust. There’s not much else to say because as I mentioned…everybody knows who Tink is. Enjoy.

as mentioned earlier, this is christina from christina’s world. i’ve always been a fan of this painting because it makes me want to run around in a big old field. my grandparents used to keep a farm upstate with lots of space similar to this, there were toboggans in the winter and plenty of field frolicking in the spring and summer. christina probably isn’t the type to care too much about what she wears, she just needs it to be simple for hanging around the farm. think pastoral, think ralph lauren easy breezy dressing…a country hipster if you will…

continuing with franny and zooey, here’s zooey. zoeey is 25 and the second youngest of the glass children. he often battles with self identity and blames this on his older siblings who exposed him to philosophy at an early age. as a result of this exposure, zooey believes he’ll never be able to look at humanity quite like everybody else. aside from his resentment, he’s described as the most handsome of the glass children and seems to have a real negative/almost devil may care attitude about life. who could blame him?
