On the weekend my family celebrated my youngest sister’s engagement and I ran up a dark grey velour skirt for the occasion. I was almost going to wear the floral dress I made a few weeks ago but I wasn’t feeling especially floral that weekend after spending some quality time suffering discontinuation syndrome after stopping Pristiq. I always wonder whether or not I should share mental health stuff on here, but I figure if I can help one person it’s worth it! (PS: Pristiq is a SHOCKER to quit, set aside a fortnight if you can and unplug yourself from reality.)
Shirt: Domino Dollhouse
Skirt: Made by me

This morning I had to hop to it when I realised I had an appointment in the city! So I pulled out my Kermit dress and now compulsory Docs. I haven’t worn another pair of shoes since Sonya so graciously gave them to me! I never thought, after all these years, that Docs would be wide enough for my feet but they are, so when I can save up some money I will definitely be investing in some 1914s.
Last week I wore my new (to me!) Docs with a black and white patterned dress and cardigan and put some Tommy Girl perfume on. It’s like I’m the teenager now that I wish I was in the 90s! If you weren’t a teenager in the 90s do not believe any of the cool young bloggers trying to sell you a 90s revival right now. The 90s was, by and large, pretty daggy. I am your elder. Trust me on this. At my very coolest I wore brown corduroy flares and little velour t-shirts but you don’t see anyone bringing back corduroy flares, do you? (Someone should, I am really into corduroy flares.)
OK back to my outfit.
Dress: Made by me

And just because I like to embarrass myself to my very fullest potential… Here are some jumping photos. It doesn’t really work out when your ankle is still tender from being fractured!
You are the absolute best. That green dress is adorable, and the grey skirt is so coooool. Is it just a circle skirt?
Love your outfits :)
Yayyyy I’m glad they’re getting regular wear!! I swear, I haven’t worn them since I was 17, so that means they were just sitting in my room for 10 YEARS! I love the ~~velour~~ skirt too.
I so totally had the same backpack as you in 1996.
Oh, the 90s were awesome! All you needed was a daggy dress with some flowers on it plus a pair of Docs and you were set! I have very wide (and tall) feet and Docs and Danskos are all I wear.
I love love love your green dress!
That green dress is AMAZING. I agree about 90s revival stuff as a whole. I was a child in the 90s and I wore some goddamn ugly shit. I also hate hate HATE when people call the 90s ‘vintage’. No.
