exCerpt:. ‘Lena x Lyon’ via Girls

coffee has an interesting way of showing up in our cultural conversation. an exCerpt, of coffee and its collective appearance as a character in the every day.


“Happiness is about appreciating what you have.”

Might I also add, and seeing what you have appreciated in a cultural context. What we have – as people – is a wonderful coffee culture in which something so fundamental to the universal human experience – going to the coffee shop – can be displayed as a thing of everyday functional beauty.

smdlr shouts out Girls for including the ritual in its show; Cafe Grumpy which continues to make a cameo and fashion’s Jenna Lyon’s of J. Crew who also makes a cameo.  While Lyons and Cafe Grumpy, to an extent appear as caricatures of themselves, they also play roles that are inspired by themselves. smdlr is just is just all-over happy to see see coffee and fashion intersect like this. The cup poureth over!
