Style Inspiration | 90s

There was a time when I thought it was a dead cert that 90s fashion would never come back in style, but along with everyone else it's grown on me again and actually makes me all nostalgic/feel like Buffy the vampire slayer, which, let's face it, can never be a bad thing.

My love of 90s fashion returned when my friend Heather started looking very Buffy-esque herself and I realised I needed to get myself a choker pronto. Turns out 90s fashion wasn't as bad as we all thought as long as we put the halter neck crop and huge hoop earrings out of our minds.

Heather kindly let me shoot some pictures of her channelling her inner 90s queen so without further ado here is my 90's fashion inspiration:

Now someone let me know when pedal pushers are back in because I'd be all over that. Are you enjoying the 90s trend?

The Denim Dress

If you read my blog regularly you may remember this gem of a denim dress from my Teen Wardrobe Haul where I reclaimed some items that had been in storage at my parents' house for the past few years. To be honest I don't remember wearing this dress that much when I was younger so I'm glad I've got the chance again and I imagine I'll be wearing it A LOT this summer.

Homemade Lush Oatifix Mask

Before I get into this post let me mention that 1) yes this mask does feel like you're spreading cold porridge all over your face and 2) I've never actually tried Lush Oatifix so it may be not that similar at all.

Long Distance Friendship

Everyone talks about how difficult long distance relationships are and I definitely agree with that, but a less talked about topic is long distance friendship, which can be equally hard to maintain. When you leave school or university and everyone disperses across the country (or sometimes even further) it's a real test and that's when you find out which friends are for life and which ones will just become a happy memory of your teenage years.

Beauty Is Subjective And So Are Flaws

'Beauty is subjective' is a phrase I'm sure we've all heard and probably agree with to some extent - some people will find us beautiful and some will not. However it doesn't stop us thinking that a lot more people will find others attractive over us - a piece of art is subjective yet most people would rather have a Picasso hanging in their hallway than a Pollock (or so we think). Comparing ourselves to others is inevitable, but it's important to remember that the exact people you're comparing yourself to have self doubts and times that they consider themselves a Pollock too.

The Summer Dress

I kind of hate how early shops bring out their summer stock. In April there's all these pretty dresses sitting smugly in high street windows, laughing because they know how tempting they are but you won't be able to wear them for months because, hellooo, this is England. The dress in this post was one of those ones that I just couldn't resist. Yes I bought it way back in April even though it's the most summery thing I've bought this year and yes it probably went in the sale before I even wore it.

Why I Told People About My Blog

If you've been reading my blog for a while (thank you if you have!) then you may remember a post back in April where I spoke about the reasons I kept my blog a secret (post here). In a nutshell, I was embarrassed and afraid of being judged. Sounds silly, but I know that a lot of bloggers feel exactly the same and some of the comments I received on that post confirmed that I wasn't alone.
