90’s Flashbacks

2 April 2013

Bloggers typically report on what they think is trendy, cool, insert positive commercial adjective here.  Not today ladies and gentleman, not today. 

If you haven’t noticed, let me be the first to alert you: The ‘90’s are back in full force.  Metallics, velvet, crochet, baby-doll florals, holograms + denim overalls are rearing their punky heads.

Museums are dedicating entire exhibitions to the era from New York’s New Museum’s “1993” to the Met’s upcoming Costume Institute exhibition, Punk: Chaos to Couture. Saint Laurent Paris (formerly YSL) just named ‘90’s Cali-Grunge Darling, Courtney Love as the new face of the brand.  Burberry is all over with their iridescent Prorsum leather trench and there are still lines out the door for skater cult brand Supreme in Nolita.

The fashion skeletons in my closet shiver as memories of my 90’s youth come roaring back: Hyper-colored t-shirts tucked neatly into my Bongo shorts with a pair of ubiquitous Dr. Martens.

I’ll be adhering to the advice of my Jewish mother and bowing out of this one.

“If you wore it the first time around, you can’t wear it when it comes back the second time.”

A bit on inspiration for you either way,  let me know if you’re jumping on or off this bandwagon:

Unless you are Jem and your band is the Holograms, take a hall pass on the shiny stuff. Oh, you like it? NastyGal has you covered.

“Every cutie with a booty bought a Coogi!”

I think I’ll leave my 90’s grunge + my Coogi sweater in my past, what about you?
