THE YOUNG AMERICAN (JEAN)

THE YOUNG AMERICAN (JEAN)

Hello lovely people

we're talking polly pocket, po and the dark fashion age of the 2000's

Was reading my latest Glamour magazine this week and saw an article all about the new transitional trend; the young american. It's all denim , plaid and neck ties. We're going back to the west! Funnily enough I purchased a piece of clothing, (i think fits with the young american trend)  that just screams responsible mother that carries her childens bran bars in zip lock bag and has a son called Bear.....(no shade) 

I also saw one of my favourite style icons; Cassie Masangkay of Tothe9's rocking the piece of clothing ......

 

 

 

So obviously I bought this:

(so easily influenced!)

long denim skir

EVERYONE CALM DOWN!

I know it looks like the sort of thing you'd see a nerd in every american teen film wearing,

but hold up (wait, wait a minute!)

they were quite the trend in the late 90's and early 2000's 

Now I'm not condoning the train wreck that was Brustin's (yes i shipped them myself, *pats self on back*)  denim fiasco of 2002 but you can see that they were once a trend okay? So I thought I'd try out the trend. Let's see how it turned out!

Thought I would channel my inner Po (its the red tele tubby, come on guys keep up) and  chuck abit of colour into the mix!

What do you think?

VINTAGE MESH BAG

PRADA

I am obsessed (yes i know I over-use that word) with this bag and the bold yet minimal contrast of its design and the way it compliments the colour palette of this outfit. Not to mention tiny designer vintage bags are making a major comeback, and I'm very much here for it! It's like being in year four again and getting your first "grown up handbag"! 

Was anyone else obsessed with having a handbag when they were like four? And keeping your Polly pockets and claire's hair clips in your precious bag? Or is it just me lol!

So what is the verdict? Which look is in and which is out? 

Personally I love both looks, they're so my style and I feel like I'm in a 90's chic flick wearing this funky skirt! 

 

LOOK ONE OR LOOK TWO?

That is the question.......

Anyway's I hope you liked this blog post! Hope I gave you a lil inspo or helped you go back in time to a simpler time of overdone denim and cool bonds tips!

Let me know what you thought in the comments! I love hearing from you all!
