In July 1994 I was spending most of my time listening to Tori Amos and The Cure while staring at a calendar, counting down the days to my impending freedom from the shackles of high school. My sense of teenage angst was at an all time high. But the world kept spinning outside the four walls of my bedroom, and there was some great movies, music & fashion going on...Read More
Well looketty look what we have here... a new Time Capsule from January 1991. 1991 is the year I started getting interested in things like fashion, hair & makeup. I bought my first Dolly magazine in July, and I was ALL for that flower power revival that infiltrated pretty much every corner of 1991 pop culture.Read More
As another month draws to a close it's time to dig up another Time Capsule. This time we're having a butcher's look at September 1988, a time when I was still in primary school - bless my own cotton socks with pom poms on the heels.Read More
I'm not sure why but I think 1991 would have to be my favourite year of the '90s. For those of you playing at home my favourite '80s year is 1987. Like I said, I'm not sure why. Some things don't need rhyme or reason.

I remember 1988 primarily for the music. My Kylie Minogue crush was at its peak, and I was getting on board the Bros, Bananarama & Rick Astley trains - all stations to Pop Heaven.

For Brisbane dwellers & visitors World Expo 88 was in full swing, and Prozac had just hit the market, so it was super happy fun times all round. I hope some of these movies, music & fashions from October 1988 bring back a few sweet memories for you...Read More
Portfolio is a 1983 docudrama that follows Julie Wolfe as she begins her modelling career with Elite Agency. By docudrama I mean that it is loosely scripted... very loosely. Joining Julie Wolfe are several high profile models from the early '80s like Carol Alt, Paulina Porizkova, Kelly Emberg, Carrie Nygren & Patty Owen. They take fresh-faced Julie under their well dressed wings as she adjusts to life as an international model. She's too adorable for words.Read More
