NEVER KNOWN A GIRL LIKE YOU BEFORE

thrifted vintage sweater, spanish moss velvet shorts, boots from ebay, purse c/o lucky vintage
 
This sweater reminds me of something I would have worn in the late 90s, probably paired with army green bellbottoms and Chuck Taylors, with loads of hemp necklaces. Since I am seemingly traveling backwards with my aesthetic tastes, here I am pretending I'm 15 again. It's really is strange to think back to what I used to love in fashion, and how I generally end up shaking my head in shame years later when I look back at pictures. Come a few years after the shame-fest, I find myself interested those same previous fashion philosophies again. Maybe it's because I don't want to grow up. 

On that note, you probably noticed my highlighter hair? Did that on a hair A.D.D. whim last week. Not with a highlighter, with color. It's funny, though. I used to color my hair with actual markers when I was a teenager. That was all great and dandy until gym class when I would sweat green ink.

To high-five the good old times, here is a 90s jam that I always loved, courtesy of Empire Records.

  1. Dude, I am so evolving backwards with my fashion too. I completely forget that I'm twenty-one. My whole point of going on a fashion conquest last year was to grow out of youth-style and accept the fact that I had turned twenty and needed to grow up. That lasted all of a few weeks, when I stumbled upon Madeline's blog and a ton of other amazing bloggers (INCLUDING YOU), and I never looked back.

    I think it's awesome though, I'd rather be mistaken for a sixteen year old than grow up. Besides, I'll forever fit into junior's sized clothes, so I don't have much of a choice either way.

  5. I'm really liking the highlighter hair! I totally colored my hair with markers when I was in junior high. Did you go to Irving? Maybe it was an Irving thing?? LOL

    I love looking at your photographs and trying to figure out where they were taken. I have no idea where this is, but I recognized Irving from a week or two ago and then the capital a little while back also. I makes me miss Lincoln!! :/ I'm visiting over a short weekend this summer for my 10 year high school reunion. Where do you like to thrift? I'm definitely fitting time in to go on a thrifting adventure while I'm in town!

  6. Love the hair & the channeling back to your old 90s style. What lip color is that?? It looks like the perfect pinkish purpleish fuchsia I've been looking for!

  11. Ok, first things first: you rock the highlighter hair, esp with the neon lipstick- it looks awesome. Also, your jewelry is always the best. Total envy right here. And then, srsly, I'm having major fashion flashbacks too!! Like I'll sit and watch old episodes of ~insert name of any 90s show here~ and think what do I own that looks like that LoL
