Family Flashbacks - 90s

Everyone says the 1980s was the decade style forgot, but clearly in my case, it was the 90s.  Which of course is why I'm sharing it with the world - so we never make these mistakes again ;)
Ok this pic was first cause it's actually the least shocking outfits, prepare for worse...

Michael in his Simon Cowell trousers, me in my grans culottes...

God I begged my mum for this tracksuit then was hardly ever allowed to wear it cause there was a huge hooha about how flammable they were.  Clearly my brother was right to be ashamed to be seen with me...

Original outfit pics!

Can you tell my mum loved pattern?  She actually tried to buy me a bigger version of that pink jacket a year or so later, I said a firm NO.

Ah outerwear.  My brother seems to have got the worst of it with his entire turquoise outfit tho... 

School and brownie uniform - I got landed with culottes when all I wanted was the joggers, that would not be the case now ;)

Even the accessories were gruesome - giant glasses and bright blue hairbands?  Who thought that was a good idea? (again tho, I begged for the glasses, they were Beauty and the Beast floral ones)

Even the end of the decade showed no visible improvement - I was now wearing what looked like gym clothing  regularly and apparently matching my brothers wardrobe, sigh...

  1. I am so thankful to my mum that she always refused to buy me a shellsuit. The rest of this looks uncomfortably familiar, though...!

  2. I love 90s clothes, wear them now and you'd be featured on The Sartorialist. Don't worry.... here's me in the 90s, if you're able to see them... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150305094165154.578693.707845153&type=3

  3. How I remember randomly patterned headbands. I use to have so many, I thought I was cool. Hated how they just to dig away at your skin behind your ears though - the pain!
