A Gentle Revolution

A new revolution has evolved and according to some it’s has come in gently. Twee, a frame of mind about consumerism has started to take root and take over.  Twee is based upon purchasing with a purpose; vintage, and handmade pieces take front and center in this new movement. It’s more than just a diy, think artisanal.

Are you still trying to figure out what Twee is about? Marc Spitz, the author of Twee: The Gentle Revolution in Music, Books, Television, Fashion, and Film, explores this topic greatly in his recently published novel. But here are some tips/cheats to help you get it quickly.  Think of Portlandia (put a bird on it seems to be a Twee motto), Zoe Deschanel, Etsy, mid-century modern, Wes Anderson, and most of all Brooklyn.
