I picked up this sweet little set of mini lipsticks by Urban Decay at the Sephora Holiday Preview Event yesterday. This is a great selection of five lipstick colors (pictured below) and will be great for my every mood. They are smaller sized than the regular Vice lipsticks. It’s really a cute little set.

 

1993 is my fav, actually, because it takes me back to high school days. Back then, we coveted MAC lipsticks and Twig was THE shade with an obvious lip liner around it. And when it wasn’t Twig, it was frosty pinky purples like B-Cup and Pervette (also by MAC). Oh yeah, and of course a MAC eyeshadow in a tacky blue – Tilt was the one – metallic AF.

 

Okay, I just dated myself. Totally. This makes me think of a convo I heard in a Sephora not too long ago where a prospective employee was being interviewed. They were quizzing her on the history of Urban Decay and were like ‘do you know how UD started?’ She was like ‘…that is before my time…’ I knew… nail polish. I didn’t say though, since I didn’t feel like ruining the vibe of her interview. I was such a Urban Decay fan. When they branched out into eye shadows and lipsticks, I snapped up as many as I could. That Vice re-release of retro shades – I had all of them… And those individual eye shadow pans – I loved it. Those wild colors… And as much Hard Candy as I could afford for my nails. We all wore those ugly plastic jelly rings from HC polishes. OKAY! I have to stop. Too much 90s flashback.

Have a Happy Sunday!

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.

fullsizerender-5

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!!!
