where were you in ‘92? – say hello again to the era we all thought was out of fashion forever

i’ve been noticing a disturbing trend in street fashion lately. at first an ironic lean toward Day-glo and splash-tack-ular prints, the early 90′s is now emerging in an explosion of earnest, gloriously clashing, epileptic chic.

god help us, hell froze over and the early 90′s are making a comeback. it was my most hated era, not only because of hammer pants, hypercolor and Aquanet, but because i was a skinny, awkward small-towner who’d just moved to a big city, just beginning the hell some people like to call junior high. thank jeebus for a twin sister through those dark, flourescent-coloured times.

perhaps it’s time to face my preteen fears and embrace this era. maybe it won’t be so painful this time around. but only because M.I.A. (in case of epilepsy, do not click) says so. and M.I.A. will always have her say in my book.


not so convinced? i dare you to watch this video and not want to dance your way to the nearest thrift store to buy yourself a pair of red zebra-striped overalls.

PS thanks for your patience last week. i’m finally home for a while and i’ve got a brand new macbook (thanks, Carlo! i love you!) to help me keep up with your wild demands for my mind-bullets of fashion insight.

Your primary knowledge and kindness in dealing with almost everything was important. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this impressive and amazing help.

  • I’ve learned several important things as a result of your post. I’d personally also like to say that there will be a situation that you will make application for a loan and never need a co-signer such as a Federal government Student Support Loan. When you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a traditional lender then you need to be prepared to have a cosigner ready to allow you to. The lenders are going to base any decision on the few issues but the main one will be your credit standing. There are some loan companies that will likewise look at your job history and make up your mind based on this but in many cases it will be based on on your credit score.

  • I’ve learned some new things from your blog post. Also a thing to I have recognized is that in many instances, FSBO sellers can reject anyone. Remember, they might prefer never to use your services. But if you maintain a comfortable, professional romance, offering help and keeping contact for four to five weeks, you will usually be capable of win a discussion. From there, a listing follows. Thanks a lot
