#ThrowbackThursday: What My Closet Looked Like In The 90's and early 2000
In the spirit of #ThrowbackThursday, I shall take you down the 90's and early 2000 memory lane when fashion wasn't all about cuteness, toughness, elegant casual, or anything you see on Instagram. Having lived in those times, I could say that fashion was at its wackiest, most intriguing, and unique-we didn't care so much about what's hip or not. Yes, there were "IT" fashion items, but we only wore the ones that fit our style and most importantly, our personality.
I wish I had kept a few of my clothes then for laughter and old times' sake, but at least I have my blog where I can curate an album of my good ol' fashionable items of the bygone times. Click READ MORE and see what my closet looked like in the late 90's and early 2000!
Elephant Pants- because Dumbo was my childhood hero.
Gaucho pants- because Princess Jasmine was my favorite Disney princess. I had this in a ton of colors and I'd always wear it with a baby tee!
Baby Tee- our version of today's Crop Top. The shorter, the better!
Anything Guess- If you're wearing Guess, you're a rich kid…and you're trendy. It was like Zara of my time.
Peasant Blouse- we're all a little like our mothers and the peasant blouse is proof! Gaaaddd, I wore this a lot in high school!
The Bohemian Belt- Bohemian fashion was big in the early 2000's and the Bohemian Belt is the icing on the cake.
Boho Skirt- Bohemian Fashion is never complete without the Boho skirt!
Hair Clamps- or "shok shok", as what me and my friends would call it, and I don't know why we called it as such.
Butterfly hair clips and rings- If you lived in those times, admit it or not, Jolina Magdangal has rubbed some of her fashion sensibilities on you. I am not ashamed to admit that yes, I channeled my Jolina side with these fluttering Butterly hair clips and rings! Haha!
Hair Wraps- Ha! Who needs those flower crowns? Hair wraps are cooler! This hair ornament even has a sentimental value because it's actually a friendship bracelet, made by you and your best friend with matching pinky swear while saying that you'll be friends for life. :D
Hair Doctor- every dream item of the 90's gal. This comb is actually so stiff and the teeth hurt my scalp, but I loved it anyway!
Hair Scrunchies- they made ponytail look a lil' cooler.
Johnson's Fresh and Smooth Face Powder- I became fond of makeup as early as Grade 6 and J&J's face powder is the only face makeup that I'm allowed to wear. It's just pressed baby powder, really!
Bench B/Pure- In my time, you have higher chances of being noticed by your boy crush if you're wearing Bench B/Pure Body Spray or Bench B/Simple. As for the boys, the counterpart is Bench Atlantis or B8.
Magic Lipstick- ah, this tacky, lead- infused lip tint made my lips look red and kissable…for two days straight because it is such a pain to remove! LOL!
Baby Bench Colognes- After all, we were still young and the smell of baby cologne was still tolerable on us and I loved Baby Bench's Ice Mint cologne so much!
Hope you had a good laugh. Anyone here who can relate? To the kids of these eras, share with me your other classic fashion items on the comments section! :D
