Breezy Days: My 90's Childhood


August 6, 2013

My 90's Childhood

+ Oh pooka shell necklaces, or any shell necklaces for that matter! Obviously I liked keeping it classy with a Britney Spears "Baby One More Time" inspired tie top and my shell necklace.

+ I was intent on collecting every beanie baby possible, and still have my prized Princess Diana doll tucked away in storage waiting for the day it's worth MILLIONS. I was such a smart 10 year old thinking of and planning for my future retirement fund.

+  I'm not sure that if I was a teenager during the 90's that I'd buy into the Nirvana grunge, doc martens work boots, plaid shirts craze...but who knows. Everyone is dumb at 12-18 years old.

+ If Lizzie McGuire was on air today, I would race home from my college classes to watch it everyday. Why wouldn't she just date Gus already?! Oh the agony! Until the Lizze McGuire movie that is ;) Also, I miss classic Even Stevens. Seriously some quality television.

+ Lisa Frank, ladies? Glitter to wear on your face and obnoxiously bright school gear were all the rage! I wish I had originally thought of making the most acid trip looking school gear first so I could be the one makin' bank.

+ Remember the hair crimping phase? I definitely wore my hair like that with a BANDANA on top. Ya...let's just be thankful we've moved on from crimping to ombre and top knots...which I'm sure our future kids will look at us sideways for :)

I was a hair crimper too!! I crimped it up for the 8th grade dance and wore my royal blue satin dress with sequins down front and dyed to match pumps from Payless. Looking back is hilarious. What were we thinking??

Haha I love this! I was obsessed with Lizzie McGuire, Britney Spears (oh dear), and don't even get me started on NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys. And I was so obsessed with glitter and crimping my hair. I distinctly remember wearing purple, grape flavored glitter on my face. WHY, just why? Oh, AND those fake hair extenstions.. Like the ones the went on your pony tail to make it look like your hair was longer. Do you know what I'm talking about haha? I could go on for days.

Oh gosh, crimped hair look so terrible!! I have no idea why that got to be so huge!

Lisa Frank everything for school! I still have two Lisa Frank scrapbooks I was given at two different occasions. Gotta love the bright neon colors and cute animals!
