As a kid growing up in the 90s, I've gone through pretty much every terrible style phase you could go through. I was in middle school from about '97-'99. This was about the time it was very cool to wear white eyeliner with green mascara (oh, yes I did) and long psychedelic dresses with sneakers (again, guilty). I was little too young to participate in the grunge era of the early 90s. Although I was a fan of the music (could never get into that boy band stuff) and an avid fan of My So-Called life after it was already canceled, I never got the chance to wear my flannel with Doc Martins and sing along to the haunting lyrics of Kurt Cobain when it was current. That's why I'm a little excited that the 90s has returned to fashion. I'm looking forward to the cooler fall days when I can break out the flannel listen to my Gin Blossoms station and pretend for a moment that times are simpler again.
