The British are coming! And so are the 90's! But mainly just the 90's. I realize this is old news but we need to talk about it. This morning I saw something that said "Guess what we have for 2011? The Skort!!" I read that and then suddenly without any warning, I was in fifth grade again. I was wearing a denim skort and vest combo, with a florescent pink and blue tie-dye shirt underneath, and a giant pink scrunchy in my hair. Oh lamentable day!
But not really, because I basically rocked that outfit. Honestly, this 90's thing is having two affects on me: excitement, as it feels like home to me, and depression, as this is how I know I'm getting old. Nevertheless, the time has come for all of us to conjure up the Stephanie Tanner and the Kelly Kapowski that lies within, or at least within those of us born in the early 80's.
I think that if we are really honest with ourselves, we might find that there are some seriously repressed 90's impulses residing deep within our hearts, and now that these pegged-pant, chunky-socked, stirrup-wearing ghosts of our past are being unleashed, it is important to take note of a few things.
- Don't go overboard. The scrunchy should stay in the past, along with belly shirts and bangs that contain more than one layer. However, that is only my opinion and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Urban Outfitters had other plans.
- Maybe don't wear all your 90's throwbacks at once. Moderation is the key, as they say.
- Do not let yourself get so into character that you start saying things like, "Not!" or "Sike!" or "You got it, dude!"
