As I turn the pages of various fashion magazines, I feel like I am turning the pages of time. I remember the 90s was filled with Kate Moss’s heroine chic look for CK One, the band Nirvana, slap bracelets, overalls, music by Salt and Pepper, the TV show 90210, Doc Martin boots, the grunge look, and the “Rachel” haircut from the TV show Friends. I also remember running around my neighborhood with my childhood friends, eating Otter Pops on a hot day, and wearing my mood ring, overalls, and black jelly sandals. I might still have some of those clothes hidden away.
I have closets full of original vintage clothes that date back to the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. I keep them in Northern California (where I grew up). They were clothes that once belonged to my grandmother and mother and now they are mine. One of these days I’m going to have to make a trip, go through everything, and add them into my newer collection of clothes. I have enough vintage clothes to open up a store. Maybe that will be my next business venture. XOXO
