Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I’ve got perma 90’s nostalgia. Perhaps everyone wants to stay in their teenage years minus the uncomfortable awkwardness. For me, the 90’s was about imitation – which is ironic because I’m obviously about embracing ones true self/beauty/whathaveyou. I think it is just a super amusing time to look back on because of all the experimentation- most of it ending up in goofy failures with clothing, make-up and hair. It also wasn’t until the late 90’s that I looked forward to presenting my physical self and styling my clothes.
90’s styles I’ve never been able to quit are as follows: clippies, cropped tees, adrogyny, grunge, brown lipstick, exaggerated eye liner, olive green, grunge and anything with a hood. What’s more is that anytime I come across a piece of clothing with said hood, I instantly become intrigued. It is because of this, and my passion for ethical fashion, that led me to discovering Animana – an ethical brand and boutique in Paris that create gorgeous knitwear and home decor. Hanging around near home on a warm Saturday afternoon, I based my comfy, loungy look around their super soft and airy Fandra Sweater. I find it a great piece for Northern California’s transition from winter to warmer spring. (Read more about Animana on Refix).
