Here I am awkwardly standing on the street.
Anyway… it’s funny how when I hear kids talking about the 90′s it’s not really how I remember it. I don’t remember thinking it was all that cool when it was happening. I do remember thinking everything was so bland. It makes me realizing how my mother must have felt when I was harassing her about the 70′s, asking if everyone loved Led Zepplin and also went to Studio 54… and how curious I was when my mom rolled her eyes.
There were a few thinks I loved in the 90′s for real. Doc Martens, combat boots, plaid and tying my sweaters around my waist. I also wore a lot of dresses, mostly from thrift stores (they had vintage back then, and it was dirt cheap). Actually taking looks from the 90′s and appropriating them to my wardrobe today is kind of silly. I bought a floral slip dress at Old Navy and I kind of feel ridiculous wearing it. An Equipment silk shirtdress though? I feel more sophisticated with. I picked this one up at Nordstrom Rack in orange buffalo check, paired with a cashmere sweater tied around my waist and a pair of lace up booties (not combat, but in that ilk) it does reminisce of how I used to dress. Ok, I wasn’t sophisticated enough to wear cashmere and silk, but now I’ve grown up, at least a little.
