My so-called life

I was feeling a little grungy, so I decided to channel my favorite girl of the 90's. This was put together with Angela Chase in mind from my soundtrack (Sonic Youth, Cranberries, Violent Femmes) to the floral dress, vest, and leather backpack. Even though the series was created for teenagers, I originally watched it after I was in my 20's. Watching it put me right back into my high school self. I guess its true that not much changes about growing up no matter what generation.
Angela: What’s amazing is when you can feel your life going somewhere. Your life just figured out how to get good. Like, that second.
H&M dress, American Rag vest, Dolce Vita boots, vintage backpack, F21 headband

  4. I actually have the dvd's thats how much I loved My So-Called Life. My high school (small school) always complained and still cannot believe how such a show ever got cancelled. Most people have realized it wasn't the show itself, but that it aired at a time where too many other popular shows were airing, so it never got a chance. After it was cancelled, MTv realized the viewing increased and thats why it was played over and over. And why am I typing all this who knows? LOL LOVE THE OUTFIT!

  10. There certainly seems to be a lot of 90s nostalgia about at the moment. It makes me feel nostalgic too, even though I hardly remember it as such... (and the late 90s was awwwwful).

  32. i've never really been into the grunge look myself, but you look very nice here. i've been on a hunt for a dress just like this to wear with a fringed leather vest i found while thrifting. i'll have to stop by h&m sometime soon, this is very close to what i am looking for!

  33. I love this outfit! I keep almost buying that dress. You may have just convinced me I need it.

  35. This is such a great take on the 90's...and I just added My So-Called Life to my Netflix Queue! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. how are you IN MY MIND RIGHT NOW?! My So Called Life is currently on Netflix instant watch and I've been watching every night for like the last week. She wears these burgundy (velvet?) combat boots that I have been frantically searching for on Etsy/Ebay and yeah...

    also the fact that Jared Leto aka Jordan Catalano grew up to be such a hollywood weirdo is never lost upon me, but gosh he's such a dream boat in that series!
