I’ve been thinking a lot about the 90s recently. It’s pretty hard not to when Teva’s are everywhere and every themed event you attend is the 90s and your mailers are filled with Ring Pops and scrunchies (a brand even sent me the first season of 90210). I’m all about embracing my childhood and reliving it but with a modern twist. I bought my first pair of Teva’s in middle school, and still can’t believe I’m all about them and platforms again. And while I love that decade, I do think we need some updates so I thought I’d break down some of my best pointers starting with… DO NOT buy a black choker. Instead get a piece of black ribbon, tie it around your neck and call it a day! It will fit better and cost under $1.
Know how to work a fanny pack – I have seen some cute ones on the market and am obsessed with Hands Free Wallet crossbody I doubled as a fanny pack from LeSprotsac. It’s so lightweight and holds everything I need (built in wallet, phone, lipstick, eyeliner), although I’ll admit I usually wear it more to the side or back. Between having surgery for a herniated disc two years ago and the fact that usually my dog, phone or a drink occupies my hands, not dealing with a purse is kind of amazing! Also backpacks keep continuing to grow in popularity which I’m all for as well.
Go for the gold! While it was all about the gold digital watches back then, now with cell phones who uses a watch for anything but arm candy? Not me, and I own a million. I finally found my perfect gold watch this year with this Henry London Chiswick Bracelet Watch. The majority of my watches are mens (James and I actually share the collection) and this one is a found new addition to the family. Especially since their watches are really special. We even got the back engraved with our initials.
