Sorry guys, we’re Celebrating MGM this Monday!

“You can’t wear a tank top two days in a row, and you can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week. Oh, and we only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. Now, if you break any of these rules, you can’t sit with us at lunch.” -Gretchen Wieners

Happy Mean Girls Monday! In celebration of this auspicious occasion, I want you to think back to the first time you watched this amazing teen chic flick. I remember watching this movie and how much I couldn’t wait to get to school the next day and tell my friends about it.

Recently, I decided to watch this movie again and here’s what I got from watching it (as an adult who can quote this entire movie).

  1. Learn to roll with the punches: Life is full of unfortunate events, it’s up to you to go with it and continue to live or you can cry your eyes out and quit. In this case channel your inner Regina George. She was the goddess of not caring about other thought of her. Did your twist out not turn out right and you only have about 15 minutes left until you have to leave for work. Who cares, transform those wet curls into a cute up do or puff and beat your face. Life zip, blackgirlmagic 1 point.

2. Exactly what he said!

3. Remember, no matter how old your mom gets, she’s going to want to barrow a sweater or want to know what’s “hip.” Just keep her in the loop and it’s a little less embarrassing. Mom’s are great, everyone want’s a “cool” mom.

4. Chase the things you want in life. Your dreams won’t become realities if all you do is dream about them.

5. Accept that you’re perfectly flawed. We were created with a sense of uniqueness. Love what makes you different. You can complain everyday but nothing is going to change. Embrace yourself and others will embrace you too.

As a tween, mean girls was the best for all the wrong reasons. Every girl wanted to rule their school but with the wrong attitude. Watching this movie as an adult is just as funny, but mainly because you realize that either you were these girls, you hated these girls or you wanted to be these girls. What ever category you fall under, just remember on Wednesday we were pink!

It’s easy for a person to ask, “What is fashion?,” but how many of us really know exactly what fashion is?

Fashion is an art form. It’s fun. It’s unique. It’s a peek into a personality. Who’s personality? Well, yours of course! Fashion presents an individual statement of expression for you and I.

Cool Club Clothing was developed to create a cult amongst the youth to better promote the musical sounds of its founder, Cyrus B. What Cyrus, a student at the University of Michigan, didn’t know was that those few shirts, with their “cool” and colorful design, would become a hit within his hometown in Detroit, MI.

“I did not realize that I was entering the fashion industry until a few months after I started making clothes,” said Cyrus. “I looked up one day and said ‘man, I think I’m a clothing designer.”

In August of 2012, Cool Club Clothing was established as a limited liability company in Michigan. As the brand developed so did their inspirational slogan, “Be You. Be Cool. Join the Club.” Judging by their fan following on social media and demand in product many people have already joined the club.

“The true purpose for creating C.C.C was to advocate the idea that with an open mind, one can reach limitless heights,” Cyrus says.

The brand’s most  successful product, by far, has been its collection of first generation beanie hats. These eye catching knitted hats feature the Cool Club signature logo with each letter a significantly different color.

Cool Club customers have also developed a high interest in the brand’s upcylced vintage wear. Each garment is given a unique and refined look as it mixes new school designs with old school fashions.

So what’s next for the brand?

Supporters can expect to see a new and improved collection of hats featuring revamped designs of the original first generation beanies and new snowball beanies! Along with the release of the new hats will be the release of two new sweatshirts.

In January, be sure to look out for more information about the EnspiRED Annual Fashion Show featured at the University of Michigan. As a way to kick off the new year, the brand plans to debut many special designs as well.
