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…
Love 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!
