That ’90s Field Day

When I saw this dress on eShakti, it reminded me of one of my favorite fashion lines from my teen years, X-Girl. Being an indie/alt-rock music lover, of course I loved the style of the brand co-founded by Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and the fact that it was the sister company of X-Large, often sported by the Beastie Boys. Here’s more information about X-Girl in an article from Teen Vogue, including a vintage clip from House of Style at an X-Girl fashion show–P.S. Sophia Coppola and Spike Jonze make a cameo appearance. I totally coveted the turquoise and lime green ringer dress in the video! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to fit in their clothes back then, but twenty years later, I feel like I got the next best thing with this a-line dress–customized to my measurements , and I even specified for them to add a cap sleeve. I can’t wait for X-Girl to make their comeback for a whole new generation to rock their style!

What’s more ’90s than a pair of Vans? If this picture looks unnatural, it’s because I don’t do running…

IMG_1829Love these anatomical heart earrings from Australian-designer, Jumbly-Umph! They have great tattoo-inspired jewelry and accessories. I found them locally in Covington, LA at Shop Soul. Rey always has such cool and eclectic stuff!

Of course, since I’m in the ’90s mood, I had to include the obligatory high school portrait pose of leaning against a tree for no apparent reason. Peace out from the Class of ’97!

      Thanks! The earrings are made in Australia, but a store near me carries them and they have a bunch of cute tattoo designs!

        I looked at their store they have a lot of really cute stuff. I make have to make a trip to the north shore! It’s always like an adventure, it’s so close, yet so far away for us on the south shore. lol
