They say every man goes blind in his heart

There's a lot of '90s in the air these days. Case in point, I spent last Sunday afternoon at a skate park.

I'm noticing backpacks, long sleeves, roomy silhouettes, long hair, denim on denim, velvet, plaid. I recently saw Kurt Vile and Thurston Moore play a show at Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre, and it was like travelling through a wormhole to 1994:

That old '90's feeling, combined with the sudden emergence of autumn (ah yes, autumn), has me dusting off Mazzy Star albums,

and contemplating Hope Sandoval's place among this blog's Style Icons:
