90s TV Rebel Girls

The archetype of the tv “rebel” girl in the 90s definitely had many faces. Each one of them were easily some of the best on television at the time. Since I love their style just as much as their snarky personalities, I thought it would be perfect to compile a list of some of the…

Throwback Thursday: Jem and the Holograms

This entry makes me really question my sense of memory. I seem to have this endless supply of the cartoon side of my early youth. Back in the 80s (um awesome) there was this show called Jem which was the ish. Like really this ish. It was based around this girl Jerrica who owned a…

Menswear Monday: Joshua Jackson

I know that I’m probably going to get some flack about this post. Or maybe I will awaken the inner Joshua Jackson fan that lives in you out there. During the 90s it was really all about JJ. He first starred in The Mighty Ducks movies about a community  hockey team of misfits. Of course…

Throwback Thursday: Fav 90s Sitcoms

One of the best things about television is it’s ability to distract you from your actual life.  I loved watching sitcoms in the 90s because it seemed that each premise was even crazier than the next. A true departure from reality. This is also where most of my junior high boy crushes were first birthed….

Throwback Thursday: My So-Called Life

Throughout the years on the blogI’ve mentioned the 90s tv show My So-Called Life. Never before have I gone into detail on it’s impact.  It was one of those shows in the early 90s that directly mirrored my life. Even today I seem to compare my own happenings to the introspective Angela Chase played by…

Lifetime Inspiration: This is England

In the past 4 years of writing this blog I have thought of the entries as a time capsule. Or a way for me to remember things important or inspiring in my life. Almost like an online scrapbook if you think about it. Finding a film that hits you hard as soon as it’s over…

Throwback Thursday: Clarissa Explains it All

Clarissa Darling, one of the girls in the 90s that I was insanely jealous of. She had the most amazing wardrobe filled with crazy prints and I think she was the first girl my age on tv I saw in Doc Martens. I wanted to be Melissa Joan Hart in the 90s. “Clarissa Explains it…

Menswear Monday: Luke Perry

Otherwise known as Dylan McKay from Beverly Hills, 90210 and the guy Cher was “saving herself for” in Clueless. Every girl in the 90s and for that matter always wants the bad boy. Whether he is clad in a leather jacket or standing behind a guitar, there is just something about the forbidden and dangerous…

Throwback Thursday: California Dreams TV Show

If you were a teenager in the 90s you knew what TNBC was. It was a segment on NBC after Saturday morning cartoons that was marketed to teens. Hence the “T”. Saved By the Bell was the main headliner for years, but for a few seasons a show called “California Dreams” ruled the waves. This…

Throwback Thursday: Blossom

I’ve just done a little mini post on Blossom before, so it doesn’t hurt to pay homage to the girl who inspired the denim flower hat of the 90s. Blossom just shaped the 90s awkward girl trend and made it super cool for kids like me to dress like a spaz. How can we forget…
