I’m taking part in Outfit August, a daily outfit challenge similar to Fatshion February. I didn’t take any outfit pictures yesterday, and probably won’t today–I just got in from bellydancing and yoga, and all I want to do is shower and put on pajamas. But here are my pictures from Friday.
I wore this outfit for the going-away party for my friend Autumn, who is moving to Montreal. She and I have bonded over our shared love of ’90s music and culture, so I decided to go all-out ’90s in her honor. (More ’90s fashion coming tomorrow–I scheduled an outfit post with pictures of what I wore to my ’90s party a few weeks ago.)
Dress and headband: Domino Dollhouse, boots: Target, belt: Re/Dress, earrings and heart necklace: Claire’s, tattoo choker: eBay, studded wristband: PacSun, spike wristband: Hot Topic, bangles: Deb and Torrid, purse: from a store in Providence in 2002 or so
I love, love, love this dress. It’s so comfortable and so ’90s. I’m tempted to add some decorative zippers, but it’s already awesome just as it is…
Mood necklaces are the best. I had one in high school that I loved and wore all the time, but eventually it broke. I was lucky to find this one, which is almost exactly the same, at Claire’s a few years ago. The color is always prettiest when I’ve just put it on, and it’s shifting between green and purple; once I’ve worn it for a while, it usually turns to a less interesting shade of blue.
This headband, to be honest, is not the greatest quality. The headband itself is wrapped with string, which looks weird close-up, and is not as firm as a headband should be. Also, the flowers keep falling off. If I’d paid full price for it, I’d be annoyed, but between a sale and a discount code, it was cheap enough that I don’t really care.
It was good timing that I had come across a whole stack of ’90s and early ’00s teen magazines just a few days ago. What a treasure trove of ’90s fashion, music, movies, and makeup! Autumn and I had fun reading through them, and then watching Daria, Clarissa Explains It All, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
