The 90s, Revisited

In the golden years (pre-16 & Pregnant, and J-Shore days) there existed the ultimate TV show packed with style and brimming with supermodels. Undoubtedly, such a genius program was a product of our very own- our MTV ancestors in the age of scrunchies, jellies, and lip smackers. With the return of 90s cult favourites like No Doubt and Green Day, the decade’s major style moments are also getting a second life. So lets us take a walk down memory lane, in honor of our MTV heritage, and delve into the styles of ‘then’ & ‘now’. read more…

Glam Vs. Grunge: A 90s Fashion Faceoff

Ah, the ‘90s – a decade that gladly reined a quirky childhood, steamy celeb couples, Spice World, incredible music (“incredible” being a modest adjective) and some serious fashion that we’ll burst at the seams with excitement for any chance to celebrate.

 

In the wake of a nineties revival on the Spring 2013 runways, we eagerly present to you a faceoff, if you will, as old as sexuality itself: the ever-endured struggle between glam and grunge, supermodels and Seattle. read more…

MIXTAPE: Best Of The 90s

The 90s. The wonderful decade that was. It was when Britney and Justin were still a thing (wearing head to toe denim). It was when flannel was the attire of *alt culture*. It was when Lance Bass dated girls. And it was when Puff Daddy was still Puff Daddy. So come get jiggy with us – forget about your bills, bills, bills – quit playing games with our heart – ’cause we’re missing you like candy. Listen to this 90s mix, and then listen to it, baby, one more time. read more…

THROWBACK: 90’s School Things You Probably Forgot You Owned

FRUITY MARKERS? MILKY PENS? LIP SMACKERS? UNICORNS?

5 Etsy Shops To Score 90s Kitsch

Cher from Clueless was your fashion icon. So was Lisa Turtle from Saved by the Bell. You had Lisa Frank stationary, played Nintendo 64, collected Beanie Babies, donned “slap” bracelets, and treasured all your jelly sandals…which you had in various colours.

For optimal nostalgic purposes, we’ve compiled a collection of FIVE fun Etsy stores where you can reminisce and rekindle your fondest 90s memories. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot of dolla dolla billz to blow, we guarantee you’ll be able to find something that makes you smile, shake your head, and go “aww man, I miss that!” read more…

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Remember The 90s?

We have such a soft spot for the 90s. I mean… we used to play old school computer games on grayscale 80s desktop computers and save school work on floppy disks; there was no such thing as the internet and when there was, we had to wait for family members to get off the phone to use the dial-up internet. This is an ode to all of our favourite things from the 90s (a few 80s items included). read more…
