Oh Right, The Clothes!

sexiest-flannelOMG, I can’t believe you are going to write about those dresses without showing them! Upload photos, please.  In the early 90s, I mostly wore ripped jeans and cardigans. Also, sometimes, overalls with pigtails. Why did we dress like farmers, Kara? Was it a rebellion against the uptight academicism we were embracing simultaneously?

Later, we strategically ripped the necks out of our shirts as if we were being chafed by the tag and got carried away — also, I think, so the shirt would fall off our shoulders a little. We wore Revlon Blackberry lipstick but not a lot of other make-up. We dyed our hair a lot. But generally I feel like the uniform was fairly unisex, with the flannel shirts and all the shoulder-length hair. And wasn’t that so nice in a way? That men and women were able to turn each other on by dressing more or less the same, and so comfortably?

Of course, after all that frumpiness, I think it makes sense why as the nineties were ending all I wanted to wear were short skirts and high heels.

P.S. Here’s one of the other “sexy flannel” pictures I found while looking last night for a blog header. I do hope flannel makes a comeback.

  1. This makes me happy. You have no idea how much I enjoy wearing jeans and a baggy flannel shirt.

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely
    know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?
