Flashback

So the outfits for the “Decades” dress up party came out great. The closest to an outfit shot of Nathan I got was this:

Dec 6, Day 61 reject

But he looked great. UGLY sweater, old school Docs, Morrissey tee, scruffy beard and all.

Here is my outfit in all it’s glory though:
Decades Party. The 90s.

That jacket is a jacket I bought when I was 16, with a paycheck from the GAP. I was so excited when I got it, I wore it right away. In August. In Texas.

For me, the thing that really made the costume though was the thermal underwear shirt:
Decades Party. The 90s.

Everything but the earrings (Love Erin Designs), boots (Steve Madden) I dont have my Docs anymore) and the thermal (Wal-mart) is vintage. The jacket is 16 years old. 16!~

SO cute! Where was the party? I always wanted a COOL motorcycle leather jacket but alas, they didn't make them in pleather (plus I don't think I'm hip enough to pull one off... then OR now)!

Okay I have to mention that the 90's were the fashion love affair that instilled my life long love affair of all things 70's. That or I was a hippie in a former life. In any case viva grunge - viva 90s - and I need a dress exactly like this to wear with my knee high doc martians.

aside: I really hate that I got rid of my flower doc martins. what was I thinking????

Oy - I had about 10 versions of that dress back in the day. Way to stir up old memories, lady!

You were so obvi ahead of the fashion curve at 16! I love pieces like that jacket, forever timeless yet stylish.
