Party like it's 1995!
Last month, I went to my friend's birthday party at Middlesex in Cambridge. The theme of the party was early 90s and my homegirl and I had a ball getting ready for the party by reminiscing about the olden days of Grunge, Doc Martins, Janet Jackson braids, New Jack Swing and the era when it was cool for girls to wear baggy (comfortable) gear.
I searched high and low in my closet for a pair of baggy jeans, only to realize that I gave all of those to Goodwill or Rosie's Place years ago. Since my tribute to TLC (R.I.P. Left Eye) was a no go, I decided to go with a nod to the late Kurt Cobain with the grunge look. Thankfully, I'll have a chance to remix my 90s outfit this weekend and give a little something back at the same time. Anybody still have an 8ball jacket I can borrow?
