Remember a few days ago last month I went through that stage where I binge-watched like three seasons of the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air?
Well, maybe it was all of Will Smith’s enthusiastic dancing, maybe it was my love for vibrant colours or maybe it was just pure nostalgia for pretty much just any time that was not 2016 . . . but the 90s hit me hard.
So hard, in fact, that I may or may not have spent an entire month rocking neon, layers and pretty out-there hairstyles.
However . . . I regret nothing. 90s style is awesome. Neon orange is awesome. Forever 21’s velvet dresses, each only £11 not on sale?
So the inspiration behind this look was basically that I wanted Hillary to adopt me.(And if you don’t know who Hillary from the Fresh Prince is then I just don’t even know for you.)
“A rare sighting of the native urban Londoner in its natural habitat. Grime, dirt and bricks are the necessary sustenance for this species of the LDN family. Often found in alleyways, strolling after dark and in trainers. Close cousin of the Central and North London Blogger. Whereas the Central and North cousins of the Urban Londoner prefer daylight, white buildings and pristine architecture, the Urban blogger prefers the cover of the night.”
I haven’t really been posting OOTDs (or much of anything…) recently. I mean, in my defence, I do live in Britain. It’s cold, uninspiring and the motivation to get up and do anything worth posting about just isn’t there. That being said, I do actually have another OOTD post in the works for you.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you kind of know that the whole minimal, monochrome thing went over my head. I love vibrant colours – red and orange in particular, at the moment. This top is from the men’s section of Forever 21 and the colour is gorgeous.
**Note: Im not sponsored by Forever 21. I don’t know why I would be as they’d be getting a pretty shit deal what with the nonexistent fashion posts but I thought it was worth a mention. My obsession is totally authentic. Or it could just be that I’m lazy and like to buy entire outfits from one store; who knows?**
Well, that’s me done. What do you think of this outfit? Are you a fan of 90s style?
All the love,
