Grunge…..

ImageI am bloomin’ loving grunge atm. I have given up trying to look cute and pretty because to be honest I just don’t have that kinda face. My obsession with the 90’s and Cara Delevigne proably has a big part to play in this new craze of mine, but sitting watching a true hollywood story today on Johnny Depp today probably pushed me over the edge. Him and Kate Moss were the perfect couple. Both just as carelessly cool as the other.

I think this suits me because I have a mad cows lick thing on my forehead which means when I wear a middle parting it looks as though I have just rollen out of bed. But hey ho thats what grunge is all about, Minimal effort

Image(Look at me rocking dat grunge shizz)

I have actually decided that this is happening, so this sunday i am gonna do some major shopzin, and I get a new grungeified wardrobe. Seriously you will be seeing a female Johnny Depp. Who is by the way, the kind of all things grunge.

I seriously could not mention the word Grunge without bringing up Johnny Depp. Some may say nirvana but personally I think Johnny Depp was the first. His careless junky sheek style is the definition of amazing. He might not be quite as cool anymore but in his younger years he was more or less a grunge god. But who almost equals his grunge goodness… the one and only Kate Moss.

Image

Her amazing face and effortless style is an inspiration. I am now in the process of trying to make myself look like the love child of Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne! xoxo

The 90’s: Confused or Cool

Image

I have to admit, part of me really loves 90’s fashion, because well…it’s definitely quirky, but was it all deliberate or were there just a lot of confused teens?

There were many different trends such as as grunge, baby doll and bright and baggy! Who Knew! 😛

GRUNGE

Grunge had that sort of ‘just rolled out of bed look’, but don’t judge some of the coolest bands of that decade like Nirvana, were grunge gods. It was all about looking dishevelled and flaunting your long, bordering on greasy locks. You didn’t have to come from seattle either- which was the home of grunge music- to rock the look, most wannabe teens just wore baggy rock tees under plaid flannel shirts.

Babydoll

 The schoolgirl look of babydoll dresses, with puffy sleeves and thigh high stockings became popular because of movies such as Clueless, which were all the rage in the 90’s. Another fashion trend which took its inspiration from the baby wear look was wearing slip dresses over t-shirts. I personally think the babydoll trend was super cute and sometimes wish I could get away with it nowadays, (not that I don’t try). 😛

Bright and Baggy

Image

 Baggy and Bright colourful jeans were all the rage in the 90’s.  Hip Hop stars made it, so that the baggier that your jeans were the cooler you were. Colours such as yellow, red, green and indigo were seen on every 90’s teen. Huge overall’s were also popular, and could be worn in two ways, either with just one strap and letting the other hang, or unhooking both straps and wearing a belt to stop them falling off! This larger than life fashion, may seem a bit alien to us but it has effected a lot of our fashion today such as lazy day tee’s or boyfriend jumpers.! xx

Big Shoes

Image

 The one thing that all these trends have in common and something that was undeniably probably the biggest fashion craze in the 90’s was ‘Chunky’ shoes. Shoes such as Doc martens, elevated trainers/sneakers or really anything that had a sole which made you about a foot taller, were all the rage, with hip hops stars, grunge gods, and baby wear beauties all wearing them.

 Personally I don’t see myself walking about in huge dungarees, with no straps, but the eccentricness and madness of 90’s is something that is definitely growing on me and I think I am definitely learning to love it! xoxo
