This is TODAY.
I was up early and browsing on the Lilly Pulitzer site, marking things for my wishlist. Then I noticed markdowns popping up on some items! The search was acting kind of funny. but I saw three things I really liked and quickly put them in my cart and bought them. Now, as of 6:30am ET, you cannot even access the site. They are using the Queue-it platform which is the same thing Too Faced used for the Sweet Peach launch.
I wonder if I’ll get my Cathy Shift Dress and two tops? I got a confirmation number… Hm…
LOVE POISON NO.9 by Wildfox
Look of the Day
Buy this vintage Wildfox t-shirt on my Poshmark site here.
Check out my totally awesome New Kids tee! Talk about flashback! Found this gem when I was cleaning a drawer. Now, if I could only find my New Kids on the Block slap bracelet…
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.
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!!!
I love Alice + Olivia.
I love their Basquiat collab project pieces even more!
