Party like it’s 1993

I attended a grunge theme party a couple weeks where we partied like it was 1993.  It was outdoors on one of the coldest nights we’d had this season (maybe 40 degrees?  Brrr!) which worked with the layering, although hid the awesome long-sleeve waffle shirt borrowed from a friend that I was wearing underneath my dress.  Very ’90s, I tell you.  I went to Target a few days later and they were selling thermal shirts right next to plaid flannel.  I guess people in my age group are nostalgic for the ’90s fashion of our youth, or at least the fashion of the cool people from our youth — I didn’t quite hit the mark at the time.  True example: in 8th grade I owned a pinkish-purple plaid flannel that I wore tucked into jeans.

I bought a floral dress at Goodwill that I shortened and tailored to my size, and since I’m considering this whole wearing-dresses-not-just-as-costumes thing I’m going to do something about the flutter sleeves and try wearing it In Real Life.  In fact, my grunge party outfit wouldn’t cause passersby to whisper, “Hey, check out that costume, where do you think she’s going?”

Jacket, dress, boots: Goodwill
Hoodie: I don’t remember
Waffle shirt underneath: Borrowed from a friend
Fishnets: I don’t remember
Lipstick: Wet N Wild from Albertsons

    Now THAT is a makeover with vision, that Goodwill dress. I probably would have passed it right by. Good imaging
