Smells Like 90's Spirit

in celebration of these two lovely ladies' birthdays, they threw a huge 90s inspired bash in becky's upstairs studio on main street. 

with a keg and everything! it was a true 90's rager that took me (waaayy) back to my 17 year old just-graduated-high school, baggy-overalls-wearing scrunchy-lovin self. 
the 90's were multi-faceted really, when you begin a serious study, and there is a big difference between '91, '95 and '99. the many intricacies were represented in full force at this birthday riot.









looks like a really bad 90's sitcom, hm?



myself, i went circa 1998, when i was way into wearing bindis and little jewels by my eyes and fake tattoos and glitter. i wore this fairy baby tee that i used to rock quite frequently as evidenced by its completely faded nature, with a tutu which i never actually wore, but i wanted to look like more a raver than i really was. a pile of beaded necklaces, a pink plastic flower clip in my pigtails and some big bulky maryjanes with knee socks, and i was good to go. psychedelic fairy flower child?

needless to say,with a playlist riddled with the likes of "no diggity," ace of base, and "firestarter,"well shit yeah it was a regular riot in there!



i even got a whole red plastic cup of beer spilled on me. hella 90s. see what i mean?



add plenty of glow sticks, and don't forget the candy necklaces.


...and perhaps a sleeping baby along with your beer ;) 90s gets an update.

all we needed was some zima to complete the flashback. i will admit, i wish it still existed.
but then again, this is what i do for fun, so....yeah. i'm gross.


what about you? favorite 90s memory? song? fashion faux pas? pray tell. meanwhile i'll be listening to spin doctors. just kidding. just kidding.

you know I hella love this! the fashions! sunflower dress (I've been looking for the perfect one for so long...)! skater dudes! bjork side buns!

My favorite 90s year/time is the summer of 1994 when I was fifteen, just discovering my own style, making zines, having a blast. I might actually come back and tell some more of it, but i gotta rush out the door.

LOVE THIS POST!

Picture 12, girl in knee socks and boots and sheer top! I was excited to read this post as soon as i saw the title!!!!! Fashion wise, the 90s manifested in my wardrobe (at different times, just as you said) bodyshirts (onesies?) and dungarees geometric prints on dresses, A Line skirts and tiny tops, flannelette shirts and straggly hair and knee socks...faded corduroy levi jeans, platform shoes and novelty little kid hair clips and big fuzzy cardigans. You know, I also owned a puffy pirate-esque blouse. I love this post Heather.Looks like an Ace party. (Ace of Base) Please reminisce some more. xoxo

pssssst you look gorgeous anyway, but super so as a 90s rave chick. I would've seen you at the club, and thought, who is that cool ass girl? I want to be her friend!

omg.

that zima commercial cracked me up.

love that little baby hanging out, 90's style.

becky and jordan are waaay hardcore athentico,
and i love you spinning in that tutu.

i get my 90's inspiration from the cast of 'hackers.' ;)

i was small during the 90's, but later in the decade came kerchiefs on the head, capris and 3/4 sleeve shirts over spaghetti straps....probably paired with denim short overalls. i'm describing 6th grade to you.

Love love this! Although I wasn't really a 90's child (I was 7 when the decade ended), I've always felt I was supposed to be. Haha. Funnily enough, I was also into wearing bindi around 1998...at age 5... :)
