+ 90s Kid 4Ever +

I'm a 90s kid at heart. I remember the summers of my childhood. I grew up watching "Hey Arnold!" & "Full House." I recall The Spice Girls & Britney Spears being the epitome of cool. Every girl knew the words to every song. I used to record tunes from the radio on my tape recorder because that was the only way to make a customized mix tape. Oh the times have changed.




Dress: eShakti* // Shoes: Old Navy // Necklace: my grandma // Anklet: Rue 21 // Nose Ring: eBay

I long for those carefree days. At least I can live vicariously through my stylistic choices. This Empire Tropical Floral Print Dress from eShakti is customized. I requested that it be tailored above the knee for someone 5'7" & that is spot on. I was really drawn to this print because I'm obsessed with anything tropical, but also because it reminds me of the 90s. It takes me back to those old times. I have a bed sheet from my kidhood that looks similar to this pattern, so it's kind of like wearing a childhood token. I like the pockets & square neckline too. 



I wish I could bust out all my favorite Disney VHS tapes & have a marathon. I wish I could eat vanilla ice cream & hot fudge at my grandma's while watching cable television. I wish. I wish. I wish. Oh well. Guess I can just wear this dress & make new memories! Do you have any childhood memories that send you back?  + 90s Kids 4Ever +

  10. Oh my gosh. I love the print! It's so gorgeous. I love loud prints like that. I love that the print is very 90s but the cut of the dress has some 50s vibes. Reminds me of Bettie Page dresses!

  16. I love this dress! It's great that you can request different sizes as I usually struggle to get dresses long enough for me.

    Also an 80's kid, I remember recording music from the radio, too! I used to record the top 40 pepsi chart every week, haha.
