no doubt "tragic kingdom" // the cranberries "linger" // daisy sunglasses // denim vest // daisy dress // black knapsack // maroon lipstick // doc martens
I was born in Spring 1988 so despite "growing up" in the 90's, I feel like I missed out the "cool" aspect of it because I wasn't quite a teenager. The 90's are definitely one of my favorite decades in terms of style, music, and overall aesthetic. That might sound like total crap since I don't really act/dress that way, but there's the iconic look of the grungy 90's that I adore.
When I saw this dress at ModCloth I instantly dreamt up an outfit around it and this is the result. Now I'm not going to pretend to know all there is to know about the 90's in any way, but this is what my brain thinks of when I remember idolizing people who were 8-10 years older than me at the time. It could be based solely on a stereotype, but even if that's the case, I still really dig the look. And shoutout to Tragic Kingdom! That was the first album I ever bought! And it's still one of my absolute favorites!
What about you? Were you into the 90's at all?
What was/is your favorite aspect?
