I am still in love with the 90's. I seem to want to dress exactly how I did when I was 13/14 when I was a "Grunger" at my high school. A grunger was a mix of grunge plus raver I guess (at least it was at my school). I don't want the raver part (I used to wear jeans that I made into flares by adding a panel of bright red fake fur on each side and then reflector strips and embroidered iron on smiley faces and cherry's all over, ahhh so gross, I teamed the pants with a Stop the Jabiluka Mine T-shirt and a brown flannelette shirt/jacket and some tie dyed scarf I made. I also had half my head shaved and coloured blue and a nose ring and I wore bright blue docs... I was one crazy hot mess) I just want little parts of that style back. I want the docs, I want the floral's I used to wear loads of and I also want that bad girl edge I used to have. I wish we had more photos from that time so I could see how crazy looking I was but sadly there are only a few photos of me at that age and in all of them I'm kinda toned down, I guess for family events (my mum never told me not to wear anything but I got the impression my Nana wasn't too thrilled with my style so I toned it down slightly on visits to her house)
I guess I was an Emo of my day, only not all grungers looked the same and we were more political, always going to protests against the Jabiluka mine, Pauline Hanson and Jeff Kennett. Lol one of my 1st dates with Henry was to a protest. Do you remember when S11 meant something else completely to Australians? My high school was a bit of a hippy school too. The teachers used to join us at these protest rally's, we even had out own school protest sign to hold up at the march.
Maybe I'm feeling a bit nostalgic because I bumped into an old high school friend yesterday. It was great catching up and remembering the good ol' days. It's also fun knowing who out of the "cool" group has actually done something cool outside of high school (basically zero, haha...can you tell I wasn't in the cool group, lol)
Anyway here are some 90's ebay wanna haves.
I totally had a pair just like these. I love them.
This dress is so cool. I'm going to try and find something similar at Savers for me. Also the store makes those awesome gloves, I really want a pair!
I have wanted a leather jacket forever, but they never look good on me. This one is amazing though with all that fringe. I totally need to have it, but it won't fit me :(
All of the above are from the Gracie Vintage ebay store.
Feel free to bid because I can't afford anything even though they are cheap. Why can't I afford anything? Because I'm saving my pennies for these:
Thanks to Spandex Pony who found my dream shoes in my size on ebay. Now I just have to win...please no one else bid.
***EDIT*** I won them for $53.52 USD YAY. I just hope postage isn't more than $20-ish (I sent an email but haven't get a reply yet :S) Yay my dream shoes are mine! Thanks so much Spandex Pony :>
Oh and by the way I did a small re-design of the blog today. I have wanted to do it for a while, hope its all ok :>
