Nirvana Nights

What fascinates me most about fashion is how different decades are marked by such distinct characteristics. In the 1920’s, waistlines dropped and hemlines rose as women entered the workforce and became more independent. In the fifties, skirts flared and men pushed up their leather jacket sleeves. By the seventies, everyone was grooving to Led Zeppelin in their bell-bottoms and earth tone tunics. But the nineties are like the grungy stepchild of the decades who wore midriff tops and flannel shirts around the waist.

The outfit I am wearing brings me back to the decade I grew up in. It may not be known for its fashion, but let’s remember that Britney Spears, roller blades, Friends, Kate Moss, and Nirvana all came out of the nineties. :)

Lo que me fascina más de la moda es que las diferentes décadas están marcadas por sus características distintas. En los 1920’s, la cintura bajó y los bajos subieron cuando las mujeres entraron a trabajar y se volvieron mas independientes. En los cincuentas, faldas explotaron y los hombres subieron las mangas de sus sacos de piel. Y cuando llegaron los setentas, todos estaban escuchando a Led Zeppelin en sus pantalones acampanados y túnicas en colore neutrales. Pero los pobres noventas son como el hijastro fachoso de las décadas que puso blusas cortitas y camisas de cuadros amarrados en la cintura.

Este outfit que me puse me transporta a la década en la que crecí. Tal vez no se conoce por su moda, pero hay que acordar que Britney Spears, patines “roller blade”, Friends, Kate Moss y Nirvana salieron de los noventas. :)

P.D. Mexicanos queridos: Que tal la bolsa “Made in Chinga”? :p
