Hamish Macbeth 1990s fashion:
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that Lar and I are a bit obsessed with anything and everything that has to do with Scotland. A couple of months after I returned from studying abroad in Edinburgh in 2004, I discovered ‘Hamish Macbeth’ on BBC America – a 1990s adaption of M.C. Beaton’s mystery novels set in a small Scottish town. Fast forward to today: not only are Lar and I proud owners of the whole ‘Hamish Macbeth’ series on DVD, Lauren has actually been to the town where it was filmed!
I know this post is sounding incredibly nerdy and I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve here, but it’s worth it because I wanted to show you all the clothes in the show. Lar and I were re-watching season 2 the other day and noticed how the women in ‘Hamish Macbeth’ were wearing clothes that, without a doubt, would be snapped by any self-respecting street style photog out there.
For example, this white shirt above. I doubt even The Row could create such a great, weighted shirt. It makes me want to go back to 1996 and snatch up the wardrobe from the whole show.
And look below! Chambray! In the 1990s you could buy a chambray button-up for $10. Now they sell for $80+ at Madewell (this one is on sale for $48!).
I know it’s not really groundbreaking to say that 90s fashion is back in style, but I love how unpretentious and modern-looking it appears in one of my favorite shows.
L’Intrus “the intruder”:
Before this post gets too long, I want to include a video that my talented friends created for a school festival. It was shot in one day and my bf did all the sound editing. Warning: there’s part of it that’s NSFW. So at the very least, watch it with the sound turned down if you’re in a cubicle.
PS: I threw a surprise engagement party for Lauren and Matt this past weekend. I’ll post photos soon!
