That flicker in time between the late 80s and early 90s was a sweet spot in fashion. I don’t usually combine so many loud pieces in one look, but sometimes you just have to let more be more. I think what makes this outfit work are the components’ striking similarities, and subtle differences. They echo each other. Matching-clashing shades of pink is a good way to achieve that ‘Girls Just ‘Wanna Have Fun’ feel—not to mention embellished denim, neon shades, vibrant lips, and a hit of glitter.

This dress definitely reminds me of the swinging ’60s, but the matching shades and jelly sandals give the whole look a Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion vibe.IMG_0186

These Ain’t Your Momma’s Mom Jeans

Can we talk about the ’90s again? Because for me, mom jeans, crop tops, and jellies are absolute essentials. Here are two outfits with two different vibes that both celebrate these wonderful throwbacks.

1Q1A2877You’re going to see me in these American Apparel Medium Wash High-Waist Jeans and my American Apparel black Spandex Crop Top again and again. They’re simply the sauce. My relaxed yet funky Sandro sweater is the perfect weight for September’s fluctuating weather, and I love the way my vintage woven bag plays with the texture and colors of the sweater. Being that the glitter Juju Babe glitter jelly sandals  (also courtesy of American Apparel) are on the cooky side, I went with my trusty black Oliver Peoples shades to keep things cool.

annie feetWhile the first outfit has a sort of updated grunge look, I suppose I would call this getup Babysitters Club Chic with a ’50s twist…I’m totally obsessed with these deliciously embroidered mom jeans from Topshop, which I paired with American Apparel’s basic white Baby Rib Crop T. My off-white cateye sunglasses from See Eyewear add a sophisticated flair to this fun-loving look, and the tortoise-shell stems pick up the tortoise buckle of my vintage belt.
