I’d like to refer you to my first post of 2012, in which I predicted what will “Rock your World in 2012.” 90’s TV shows was #4, and as my much-more-stylish friends predicted 2 years ago, 90’s fashion is back, and so hot right now.
I would like to declare here and now, that I, Alison Faulkner Robertson, being of sound mind and body do hereby FULLY support the 90’s trend.
PHEW I feel so much better having gotten that off my chest. And with that said, you can certainly be expecting some 90’s inspired tutorials to be doing the Urkel your way very soon.
A good rule of thumb for the 90’s trend? If Cher or Dionne wore it, you should too. So mini backpacks? YES, strap them on. Lot’s of plaid on plaid? Yup, that’s golden. Oh! How about sunflowers, well, maybe Cher didn’t wear them, but I sure as hell did in the 90’s so I think those are good too. Not to mention the ever popular scent “Sunflower” by Clinique. Who still has some?
I’ve mentioned this before, but I give away EVERYTHING. Seriously, everything. But for some reason, I have saved ALL of my Dr. Martins from high school. I’ve never been more thrilled about a hoarding decision in my life! I have the black ankle boots and I also have some black and white mary janes. I loved those shoes SO MUCH. Mostly because this boy (two years my senior) I was in love with had matching black and white docs–not the mary janes but the lace-up kind. Sometimes we’d wear them on the same day and he’d be like, “Oh hey, look, cool.” And I would act like I hadn’t been planning the coincidence for weeks. High school Alison was very intimidated by boys. College Alison would have slayed him so hard.
Anyway. I’m sure I love the trend so much because of all the nostalgia, which of course dates me. But I don’t care! I LOVE THE 90’S! And I will ride this 90’s style, fashion, trend wave for as long as I can.
I hope you’ll do the same.
Keep it crafty, keep it sassy.
