I never thought I'd see the day where I'd go to a nineties costume party, mainly because that decade still seems too recent to be ripe for "retro" costume party fodder. However, it's over twenty years since the beginning of the nineties and I am, in fact, going to a nineties-themed party. Because I was still very much a child during this decade, I didn't get to watch many of the seminal TV series and films associated with the nineties until I was well into my teens/twenties. My nineties looked something like this: lots of overalls and bike pants, Fun Dip, The Baby-Sitters Club, Samurai Pizza Cats, Spice Girls, Goosebumps, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, dolphins (lol), and countless afternoons terrorising the neighbourhood on my hot pink BMX bike. With that in mind, I started to workshop a nineties outfit with items readily available in stores. It also gave me a reason to finally buy a pair of dungarees (not that I needed much persuading). All that's left now is to party like it's 1999.
Clockwise-ish from left:
Moto bleach dungarees - I bought a similar pair from Glassons but they don't appear to be on the website yet.
Topshop 90s round sunglasses
My Kitsch ring set
Topshop sun necklace - I'm not actually a fan of this necklace but sun, peace, and yin yang symbols pretty much summed up the nineties. Oh, and dolphins.
Mini Milk Lip Smackers
New Look jelly sandals
Baggu striped backpack
