Loving the nineties
Im absolutely inspired by everything '90s at the moment. It's a decade that doesn't feel that long ago, does it? Girls that were once guilty of fighting over who was going to be Baby Spice have an apprehension to re-visit the decade that had us pulling our hair back with butterfly clips. It's almost like we feel that it's ok to wear the shoulder pads of the '80s and the flare jeans of the '70s because we weren't around then. We are putting a modern twist on something our mums once wore. But we feel a little uncomfortable breaking out that lace choker again don't we? And we aren't so keen on the idea of midriff are we? Not to mention those awkward little half-up hair-dos.
We've already seen some velvet and other 90's trends, I know. But I love girls that are brave enough to go all the way. I'm not saying I'm going to break out a mini backpack, don a spaghetti strap A-line mini dress and bedazzle my jeans in rhinestones. But I love seeing this look on girls that are confident in pulling it off .... Abby-Lee Kershaw I'm looking at you. My aim is to try it little by little. Baby steps.
