Paying Tribute II

Seeing that my obsession with the late 80's early 90's has lead me to watching old school hip hop music videos and movies for the past 4 days. Which by the way is what I use as fashion inspiration. I just had to write about a show we all know. Beverly Hills 90210, a show I never really had a chance to be captured by as I was always sent to my room when it came on. Needless to say I felt inspired to show you how far back some of our current favorite trends/styles come from.

 Matching crop tops to your high wasted bottoms, a very popular trend this year.


 Kicking it in combat boots

That black and white striped dress would qualify to be in my wardrobe

There was one character who's style stood out for me the most

Donna Martin, a spoiled Beverly Hills teen with too much money and too much time played by Tori Spelling.
I love her style as a whole, she kept reinventing herself with every outfit but continued to look great.

Love it! Her fashion sense gets two thumbs up from me.

It wasn't all good though. I think the one thing I hated about 90s fashion is the mens fashion back in the day. Over sized blazers and shirts, suit pants that just never sat right and jeans that were for some odd reason too tight in the crotch areas.


Fashion is repetitive and I believe that its up to us to learn from the past and do it better than they did the first time around.

As the year comes to an end I look back and realize I'm still where I was a year ago. Single, not studying what and where I really want to and with no idea what next year has to hold. The most fulfilling thing I've done for myself this year is this blog. It has helped me reach out to you and realize that there are a handful of girls out there that relate to my struggles. Man how time flies, just yesterday I was 16 and madly in love now I'm a 20 year old single black female addicted to retail. 

Here are just a few things 2013 gave us....
''Lets reflect ''

These round frames were very popular this year. 

White Pumps
These shoes became a necessity in all wardrobes. They go with whatever.

Bold lips
Everyone has been more daring with lip colour and I 'm loving it. From fuchsia to all the shades of red to dark purple to brown.


My least favorite trend of the year but has given many girls a sense of elegance and confidence

Everyone from the runway to celebrities to street style has rocked and continues to rock this trend. I'm still on the hunt for that perfect tribal blazer.

Geometrical shapes 

Miguel ft Kendrick Lamar
I first saw these interesting monochromatic patterns on Kendrick Lamar in this music video. He was daring and wore a  Guns, Germs, $teal outfit.

Combat Boots

This unisex trend was very popular this year and this one I must say I've fallen in love with. I don't own a pair because I'm rather picky and I haven't found the perfect pair just yet.

If there's one thing I am looking forward to is the next Closet Exchange. Sunday the 2nd of Febuary, get your stuff ready and be sure not to miss out. 

Happy New Year!!


With love,
