We remember when all we wanted was to have Rachels hair, own all the Buffalo platforms in the world, we walked around saying 'that's way harsh Tai... I'm outy', we wish we owned some thigh high boots we could stuff condoms down and longed for a best mate that lived next door who we could talk to out of our bedroom window, we also went round singing 'waterfalls' all day... those were the days of our lives.
But once MTV base was born and old skool garage became cool, all thoughts of scrunchies and check skirts became a thing of the past and all we wanted was one of those cheap, stretchy tube dresses with baggy top halves. If you were a teenager in the 00 's you will know exactly the classy number we mean.
We remember thinking, when 80s fashion was doing a come back... 'ha... imagine if they bought back the 90s' We mocked the very idea. We hadn't a clue. Why on earth would they not bring back the 90s. We forgot how good a platform was and how sexy mummy jeans and a crop top looked. How could we. The very era that made us who we are today. We can forgive the top knots and banana clips... just. All hail the 90s...
The good, the bad, and the dam right awesome!
