"pssssst...the nineties called"

Remember these...from back in the nineties?
YA! I totally saw a woman sportin it today! I nearly slammed on the brakes trying to see if she also had on those ankle-height cowboy boots and safety pins tappering her pants at her ankles! Maybe a teal banana clip too?!
...listening to Debbie Gibson on her tape cassette walkman?
...wearing slouch socks?
Name some more 90's parafanalia! I'll give/mail a little prize to the best 90's-ness... Enter as many as you want. Clothes, Trends, Lingo, PopCulture...anything 90's! Go!
(Include your name)
ARE WE SEEING THIS!?! Kim's contest entry is THIS photo of herself from 1994!!! LAUGH OUT LOUDZER! (Bonus Points for the massive matching SCRUNCHY!!)


  1. oh dang. so i shouldn't wear that shirt on friday? ;)

  2. Hallar!! DO IT!!!!!
    Don't forget some good ole Transconna Hair! (=Big/Lots of Hair Spray/Poofy Bangs) and drive up in a tri-color camaro! I would CRACK UP!!!

  3. 'i think we're alone now' was HUGE (tiffany), black rubber bracelets and tight cotton mini skirts with ankle length lace bottom tights underneath (inspired by madonna, oh and her knot tied beaded necklaces too!)...
    ohhh, and don't forget rollerskating to the sounds of 'you spin me round', 'funkytown' and 'bizarre love triange'! and let's not forget EVERYONE wearing black sunglasses EVERYWHERE (indoors too) because of Corey Hart's 'i wear my sunglasses at night'...
    the word 'TOTALLY' was used at least once in every sentence....
    i will be back with more...this is fun to reminecse!!!

  4. baby doll dresses (preferably with a floral print!)

  5. Body Piercing! Yikes! It was (and still is) everywhere. And I spent too many years pursuading my daughter NOT to have piercings. In the end, she opted for an earring at the top of her ear. More popular in the 1990s though, was the belly-button piercing and short-short-Ts to show-off. T

  6. plaid shirts, ripped jeans, chucks and long greasy hair.

  7. And to think that a century ago - the "18"90s - that the fashion craze was "un"corseted tea dresses. Man, have we come along way since then. T.

  8. mmm..the '90's..all i gotta say is "ice ice baby"

    also, thanks for the little hello!!!i was wondering "do i know you?" i've actually checked out your blog before. pretty cool stuff... so...howdy neighbour!! we'll chat again!!

  9. Sunglasses, the plastic ones, neon colours, and Zack Morris' hair.
