Two posts in a week...
Has to be a record for me. But, in a way, it's making up for lost time. Looking at the archives, monthly blogging has been light as of late.
It's also been remiss in its fashion output.
So here's what I've been thinking sartorially about lately.
If you are an avid Vogue or fashion blog reader, you'll remember that moment about 2 years ago where flannel and acid wash made a brief reappearance only to be overshadowed by the re-re-re-emergence of 80's influenced/Proenza Schouler type clothing.
But damn. For a minute there, things could have gotten really interesting.
Maybe it's just this summer and where I'm at and what I've been watching. Because the re-runs of Daria, My So Called Life, Clueless, etc. have made me long for the return of 90's influenced style.
Midwaist jeans, the chunk-stack heel (Candie's anyone?!!), and floral print dresses (and yes, even flared leg light wash denim).
I am light wash's biggest fan.
Can you imagine the way these things could be incorporated now? A dash of Seattle grunge? Combat boots and mini-skirts? Even, dare we(?) hemp necklaces incorporated with more modern elements? Yes!
In my humble opinion, it's time for the 1960's/70's Annie Hall gamine look to be filed away for later use. I'm tired of the Williamsburg American Apparel "Vintage" Queen. Call me sentimental, but I'm ready to pair my high waisted shorts with a baby doll graphic T.
Which leads to my final thought of the day. Fashion is in a transition period. It's so fluid and un-fixed right now that practically anything goes. So....what do YOU think should go?
In other words, where is fashion headed? And, should it be headed there?
Remember 90's movies/TV?
And the music?!!!
