the nineties.


I already know what you’re thinking…oh god, the nineties?  Really?  I know, I know.  For years I loathed the nineties.  Everyone says fashion is cyclical and it will eventually come back into style, but I refused to believe the 90s could ever come back.  I mean, there was no distinct fashion trend or specific fad that can signal the time period.  The 90s was a giant conglomeration of every bad trend to ever exist.  Terrible hair.  Powder blue.  Fuzzy balls on all hoodie strings.  Stirrup leggings.  White tennis shoes.  Bad makeup.  Mom jeans. Excellent music.  I could really go on forever.

So if I hate the 90s so much, then why do I look like an Olsen twin in The Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley?  I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this previously, but a few months ago I got hooked on American Horror Story.  In season one, there is a character named Tate who died in the 90s, so all of his clothes that he wears on the show are straight up 90s grunge.  I happen to have an extremely inappropriate crush on Tate, so much that I found myself starting to dress like him.  It was completely unintentional, until one day I noticed that I was wearing a denim vest over an oversized sweatshirt, leggings, and beat up boots.  I look like an extra from Saved By The Bell.  I decided to embrace it and just roll with it–and now, I bring to you “Nineties Grunge At Its Finest.” (Also known as, Modern Day Hipster…)
