Throwback Thursday: Going Totally 90's

In case you didn't know, I came of age in the 90's. (Well, really, I like to think I came of age in the 80's, but I was only 9 when they ended.) To that end, I pretty much embraced every single fashion and beauty trend BOTH the 80's and 90's had to offer. Side ponytails? Did 'em. High crested bangs? Yep. T-shirt clips and triple stacked "ice cream cone" socks? Yeah, rocked those too. And I'm pretty sure you're able to see JUST how much I embraced the 90's in the photo above.

This photo was taken in my grandparents' basement. Here's a rundown of the awesome 90's trends I was rocking here:

1) Banana clip (worn to the side of course)
2) A No Excuses heart-shaped pin (clipped onto my very oversized white T-shirt)
3) Stacked bracelets, including not one but TWO slap bracelets (that red one, if you look very closely, was emblazoned with black polka dots and was my very favorite accessory of 1991)
4) A mood ring
5) Subtly crested bangs
6) A messy bob

I mean, WOW. There's just so much happening in this photo that it's hard to know where to begin. Honestly, I feel like this look somehow works. Not that I would recreate it these days, but I don't think it's SO out there that I look completely ridiculous. Lots of trends in one look? Maybe. But that was the style back then, and I went for it wholeheartedly.

Did you ever rock a bunch of trends all at once? How did it work out for you?


  1. Thankfully I didn't do much because I had school uniforms in the 90s but I still cringe at photos that show up.

  2. Yes. Yes, I did. I did a lot of not-so-cool trends all at once, especially the thick bangs, clips, and flower print dresses. ::gag::

  3. The mood ring! I always loved those

  4. Oh man this is epic lol.. I am a total 90's girl! Love the stacked bracelets!

  5. I sure did! But that's what was so awesome about the 90s!

  6. YES!! I love everything about the 90's!

  7. 90s girl here! I can go on and on reliving the fun times. You look cute!
