I love the Nineties

90s CK ad

I'll admit I'm having a full on nineties moment. I realize it's the least appreciated decade, but I would be lying if I said I hated it. I was born in the late mid eighties, but I consider myself a nineties kid. I didn't really get a chance to experience nineties fashion at an age where I was able to purchase my own clothes, so blame it. I imagine being twenty...something at the height of the supermodel, and taking all of my cues from Naomi & Kate. I imagine hauling my backpack purse to countless ATCQ shows and music fests, and pissing my neighbors off as I blast All I Wanna Do for the umpteenth time on a Friday evening. The Life...

3.1 Phillip Lim

The Spring 2012 collections were filled with small nods to the nineties. Designer Phillip Lim said, "I'm a child of the nineties. Your references are what you grew up with." While I'd like to forget JNCO jeans ,and scrunchies count me in for nineties chic minimalism a la CK and sexy, sleek dresses reminiscent of the late great Gianni Versace. 

I guess I can halt the production on  that time machine. For Now...
