Thrift Style Thursday - Like, totally 90s

Once again I thought I might have some trouble pulling together something for this week's Thrift Style Thursday - our theme is Nineties Nostaglia and while I am a total 90's girl - I didn't think I had much in my closet that would fit the theme.  Oh how wrong I was.  I set to playing around with a few things and realized this was easier than I thought. This was fun to put together!


So this sundress isn't necessary something that screams 90's - but then start adding pieces like the denim vest and we're getting there.  For fun I also added floral sandals, a daisy necklace (I seem to remember daisy things were big then) and a butterfly barrette in my hair ala Sarah McLachlan in her Lillith Fair days. Oh and we can't forget my tied flannel shirt - had to throw in some grunge too.  I always had a flannel tied around my waist in the 90s - even in the summer with my shorts.  I never said I was cool back then!  The whole outfit is finished up with one of my vintage Coach bags (that I'm pretty sure is a 90s era bag - makes me old to call something from my teen days "vintage").  Overall I think I'm pulling a pretty good mid-90's era feel here!

Sundress - thrifted, Vest - Vintage Lee (Mighty Swell pop up sale)
Necklace - Butterfly Boutique, Flannel - Old Navy
Sandals - Merona (Target), 
Bag - Vintage Coach (Tandem Vintage pop up sale)


And funny story - while I was driving Oliver to my parents this morning, the radio station I was listening to was doing their daily "guess the celebrity birthday" game - and it happened to be Melanie B (aka Scary Spice) from the Spice Girls birthday today.  So then naturally they played "If You Wanna Be My Lover" and my transformation to my teen years was complete.  Isn't it ironic, don't you think?

Head on over to these other thrifty gals blogs for some other 90's flashbacks!

  1. That would be so fun to put together. I don't think I have anything in my closet that I could use to pull off the look. Love your song references at the end. They made me laugh! :)

  13. the denim vest is VERY 90s, i had a couple of them back then, one of them had patches all over it. LOVE the vintage coach bag, I'm a bit of a vintage coach addict so that's my favorite part of the outfit for sure ;)
