I’m a 90s kid, in every possible way. Nirvana was the soundtrack to my childhood. I watched Rugrats and Kenan & Kel on repeat. And I spent a good 10 years solidly wearing denim everything. So no matter how trends change or fashion transforms, I always revert to dressing like the 90s kid I really am — which means acid wash, crop tops and dark lips.
This skirt is one of the best clothing items I’ve purchased all year. A gem from Bad at Petting Cats (an authentic 90s shop on Etsy), it’s become that thing I don’t want to take off…ever. Because of the thick denim, I can actually get away with wearing it and not feeling remotely cold as the temperatures drop. All you really need to add is a crop top, chunky black platforms and solid black tights, and you’re good to grunge. These Shellys London boots are kind of my new lover. I definitely recommend them. They’re sexy and comfy and Courtney Love-esque. So…they’re perfection, really.
