Decisions, decisions…

Fashion, Other

Which would you pick – the beautiful, bright Sea Jewels Lilly Pulitzer dress on the left, or the sleek, edgy Alexander McQueen keychain on the right???

Both are about the same price, but have totally different functions. Seeing as I already have a key chain I am quite happy with, I am leaning toward picking the dress. But by that very same logic, I already have dresses I am quite happy with too – so the ‘need’ factor in making this decision is not going to work. This is strictly a ‘want’ and a money-sink, like most all of my purchases…

Here is a quote by rapper Jelleestone to close out the weekend – it is taken from his hit ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Happiness’ from 2001

“..Money can’t buy me happiness
But I’m happiest when I can buy what I want, anytime that I want..”

Listen to this gem here

And while you are listening to rap, here is another song from 1995 by Skee-Lo ‘I Wish’

Ahhhhh 90s rap…

Ultimate 90s Flashback – ALLOY Catalogue!!!

90s

THE Alloy Winter 1997 catalogue – one of my all time favs that came delivered through the mailbox. I kept this one because I would lust over everything on every page. And I still have it today! This is so vintage now, it’s hard to believe. Yet in my mind, this was just the other day! What happened to the time!

Take a look at some of the pages below…

Baggy clothes on skater girls. Un-feminine and un-attractive to some, but awesome, rad and cool to the rest of us.

fullsizerender-4

Track stripes everywhere, like the skirt on the upper left. Those spaghetti strap tank tops were popular too.

Custoline! I had a Custo shirt, but I gave it away. Wish I kept it…

More track stripes and the rise of the ‘tear away track pant’

For some reason, this unattractive style on the above right page was something cool girl that I just would not ever be able to pull off, but was so awesome.

Camo and layering short sleeve shirts over long sleeve shirts. And little tees with graphics.

Accessories. Lots of them.

This Buzzfeed article found here has more Alloy catalogue pages, some from another catalogue I didn’t keep.

Late 90s. Best. Time. Ever.

Some of 90s style is back these days, but when styles come back, they are never really the same. Someone hurry up and build a time machine so I can go back & go shopping!!!
