My So-Called Life

IMG_9271IMG_9278IMG_9281IMG_9288IMG_9294Going grunge, again. The ’90s are having a hot moment, and I’m reveling in it. I was just talking with my brother about how innocent we were as ’90s teens. We got all nostalgic about childhood and stuff, so I find this outfit particularly fitting. I never would have worn this in the ’90s though. I was too busy with overalls, crop tops and pagers to pay much attention to anything else.

Also: this look is maybe a little more Jordan Catalano than Angela Chase, which I’m cool with. I think it has something to do with the jacket. {I still can’t believe that show was only on for one season!}

And yes, that’s crushed velvet your seeing. With knee high socks.

Head to Toe: Aritzia Rayder Jacket, Rachel Roy velvet dress via Poshmark, socks {thanks mom!}, Frye Melissa boots

 

Shop the look!

Have you been into a Brandy Melville store? Talk about a blast from the ’90s past: sunflower prints, flannel and X back small floral print dresses. Although I do remember graduating flannel plaid to pink plaid jumpers, a la Cher from Clueless. Gotta love that decade!

Sunflower prints! The very first piece of clothing I ever made was a SUNFLOWER SKORT. Thanks for the blast from the past 🙂

Thanks Caity! Definitely blast from the past! Your grunge look from this week also reminded me a bit of Clueless 🙂

Thanks Kate! Socks kept me surprisingly warm — no need for tights just yet 🙂
