I just can't consider giant black Mary Janes with white socks "bad." That's the trend from the 90s that I miss most!

But yeah, what was going on with all the overalls? With a plaid flannel shirt OVER them? We had no shape in the 90s.

I still wear one of your shirts from the 90s! It's a mock turtleneck. Luckily it's not the long, black mock turtleneck with the giant buttons down the back, but that was nice too.

I am just so thankful that there were no cell phone cameras, blogs and facebook in the 90s when I wore my platform silver boots...with shorts.

Stephanie - you are right about the lack of shape, but what really sucks about that is that we probably did have a shape under all of that flannel and didn't appreciate it yet!

And Katherine - that mock turtleneck of mine that you still wear was from the EIGHTIES.

The denim shirt/black leggings combo was so maternity-friendly though!

The EIGHTIES??? That's vintage!

This got me laughing, thanks! As an 80's kid, I could add much more to the bad list than to the good! :)

I was just thinking about crocheted vests the other day. I believe either my freshman or sophomore high school yearbook picture featured me in a white shirt with a black crocheted vest. Why were those things ever popular?

If I ever encounter a time machine, I'm going back to 1994 to punch myself for thinking I was fat and wearing baggy clothes all of the time.

I'm starting to wish this had been a list of photographs.
