for the love of all that is holy, bring the fuzzy posters back.

i'm sure you've read this article.
it's true.
all of it.
and because it's true,
it makes me miss my childhood.
after reading it, i googled 'lisa frank'
to look at some pictures and reminisce.
that's when i stumbled upon
the greatest.website.ever.
it's like crack.
i want everything.
i'm seriously considering buying
the school assortment pack along with some 
unicorn spiral notebooks and folders
for my last semester of college.
i want to go out in style.
i also found out mz. frank has a clothing line
and yes, it is as bad/great as you imagined.
behold, a floor-length, spray painted
"rainbow" denim skirt.
spicy.
despite her epic failures with nearly every 
piece of clothing,
lisa got it right with this little number. 

i WILL own this. 
my favorite part about this sweatshirt,
besides the color, pattern and neon cacti,
is the fact it's only offered in an 
"adult x-large."
it's like she knows the only way to wear this bad boy
is as an over-sized sweatshirt
with neon leggings and a side ponytail.

!!!viva le lisa!!!


sidenote:
 i tried to find a picture of the actual lisa frank. 
it's impossible.
i have now made it my goal in life
to find out what this genius looks like.

This is so so great!!!! I once had a student named "Topanga" -no joke. Obvious 90s love child. But none of the other students had any idea how freakin awesome her name was! She didn't even know! She said she knew it was from some show, but she had never watched it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. love lisa. I have a folder of hers with a lion cub and baby elephant being best friends with rainbows and glitter

Best website ever. EVER. I really love crap like this and I want to legitimately wear these kinds of clothing. Don't be surprised if I buy that skirt.

Ohhh Lisa Frank. I had so many trapper keepers covered in LF. Which, of course, I carried around so proudly.

OMG, Lisa Frank! I was OBSESSED with this stuff when I was younger. My poor parents couldn't take me to the drug store without me BEGGING to get something! That sweatshirt is awesome!

Happy Wednesday!
