Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of bad gloss about two specific fall trends: the over the knee sock and the clog. I personally love both. I’ll be honest though, when I saw the 90’s coming back this summer I cringed. I have loved fashion practically all my life and the same can be said for how long I’ve hated 90s fashion. I know that doesn’t really make sense when you think about it, cause well, I grew up in the 90’s so what did I wear if I hated it so much, right? Well during the dreaded 90s, I wore gross Blossom hats with big flowers in the front of them; crushed velvet tops with bell sleeves and lace body suits; I wore over-sized flannel shirts from my brother’s closet and forest green backpack purses with gold hardware. What’s good is that I was between the ages of 5 and 14 at the time so I have being a ‘little kid’ as my excuse, but what’s bad is that there is hard evidence of those trends I so boldly donned (i.e. grandma’s photo albums.) But who knows, now that I’m enjoying them now; maybe I’ve just been blaming my gangling-pubescent self on the fashion of this gross-awkward time in my life. Which reminds me, have any of you noticed that people who condemn fashion and fashion bloggers are usually miserable hateful people??? Just an observation; and that’s all I’ll say about them cause I’m not a miserable hateful person.
::About my outfit::1. I wore this 90s grunge inspired look to work today. 2. I really should have picked a more convenient pair of clogs (like a pair with a back strap) cause I about fell out of them a few times. 3. My top is from Forever 21 that I bought on a whim one evening for only $12. 4. I was super excited for the cold front coming in cause I could finally wear my leopard coat by Betsey Johnson. 5. I keep thinking I should have worn denim shorts instead of these dark cotton ones….hmmm….
