early nineties










dress  vintage from wasteland
cardigan  vintage

A trip to the grocery store at midnight is always an adventure, especially when there's a near-empty parking lot in which to run around. I wasn't thinking about it at the time but this outfit is rather head-to-toe 90's. All I needed was some plum lipstick and a couple of slap bracelets. I'm wary of some 90's trends but I can never seem to resist a loose babydoll dress with a really good print. I even broke down and bought a hilariously amazing long-sleeved jumpsuit at a thrift store that looks like something Elaine Benes would have worn. I was going to sell it but once I put it on and saw how perfectly it fit I was under its spell forever. Oh 90's, you have your charms.

I love the 4th photo! And yes, however atrocious some of 90's fashion was, there is some of it that is just irresistible, haha. I snagged this suuuuuper 90's pull over sweater my dad was gonna throw away, and I put it on today and laughed out loud at how 90's it looked. But I love it anyway. :)

I, too, am a fan of such dresses. My mom makes fun of me for wearing the same dresses now that I wore pre-age 10.

I love these photos! I feel like Andy Warhol took them.
