I spent most of the 90s wearing cutesy dresses, things with Minnie Mouse or Barney on them, and all-denim ensembles with Timberlands (yes, that last one actually happened, I have the pictures to prove it). So I missed out on some pretty cool trends. Some of these trends are back in style (bias skirts, neon, big sweaters), and last weekend I was channeling the 90s dress + cardigan + boots grunge ootd. All The Craft vibes, let me tell you.
To wear chartreuse, I really have to be feeling myself, lol.
I got this dress from Asos a couple of years ago for a trip to Jamaica (yay for repurposing clothes!). The fabric is a wonderfully stretchy and comfortable plisse. It is a bit sheer and spaghetti strapped, so additional undergarments are a must. I really like how this dress hugs my curves, but isn’t skin-tight. And that color!
This is another oldie but a goldie. Its a cotton cardigan I got from Ann Taylor ages ago. Its getting a little old and piling a lot, but it has a little wear left, I think. I really like the 3/4 sleeves on this cardigan, very practical.
Yet another oldie but a goldie. I’ve done an ootd post with these Born boots before (here), so I won’t go into too much detail. Suffice to say with the flat heel and motorcycle style, I thought they were the perfect shoes for a 90s grunge inspired look.
As per usual, I paired this outfit with my Senreve mini Maestra and Ray-Ban sunglasses.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go levitate someone and make their hair fall out.
