Bringing Back The '90s

There is nothing that excites me more than heading out to the flea market and being overwhelmed by all the amazing items that are so cheap. Even though I love clothing, shopping for myself at retail stores is not that exciting for me. I can shop for other people, but not for myself. I am more of a flea market, second hand store, car boot sale kind of girl. The idea of digging through heaps of clothing as if I am looking for hidden treasures brings me such joy. Weirdly enough, the fact that those clothing items were most likely worn by individuals (or multiple people for that matter) does not gross me out, in fact, it actually makes It that much more special *inserts giggle*. I bought this oversized denim jacket at a flea market and felt like I had hit the jackpot. You just do not find denim jackets like these in retail stores anymore and the good thing is, it will last me forever.

My vision for this OOTD post was "Bad Ass Chick", hence my overly forced attempt at mean mugging. I just wanted to portray a bad ass girl, that knows she's fly and is so cocky about it LOL. After going through my pictures, I realised that I was subconsciously channeling 90s fashion (90s baby over here!). Oversized denim jacket, shoes with socks, and dark lipstick are all part of the phenomenon that was the 90s Fashion trend. I really dislike continuously going for the obvious look when it comes to specific clothing items, which is why I decided to go for a more casual approach with this Oh So Sexy dark olive green striped dress. You could also pair it with black stockings or thigh high socks, as Winter is on our doorstep. I am totally loving the shoes with socks trend, it is perfect for the Winter months.

I'm certainly not an expert, but I'll try my hardest to explain what I do know and research what I don't know
