  • I styled 3 outfits inspired by the popular fashions of twenty years ago! From Rachel Green from Friends, to Natalie Imbruglia and Sporty Spice of the Spice Girls, I had a great time pretending it was 1997 and letting my inner 90s child shine through. Let me know what you think of my ~lookbook~ and if you want to see more of these!

    Hello bbs! I finally finished the 1997 video, lol! What do you guys want to see next? I honestly want to do every year of the 90s now... can't wait for '98 and the arrival of Britney/Xtina/dueling pop stars. Which outfit was your fave?

    I feel like the 90's are so on trend, you could just wear anything you wear today and get away with it

  • moonlily1  (Dec 10, 2018))

    Fashion hasn't changed hugely since the 90s, I feel. Most of it wouldn't stand out too much. At least, you can wear a lot of 90s trend separately and not look odd, but if you wore them all together, it would look obviously dated. Like, I remember when I was doing the grunge thing, a normal outfit would be a flannel shirt over a black t-shirt, denim cut offs over ripped tights, doc martens and a bunch unisex jewelry like leather wristbands and a plain black cord tied around the neck as a choker. None of...

    i was a teen in 97 you got most of it right the only thing is your pants were hiked up way to high. it was all about the low rise and showing off your calvin klein underwear.

  • knittinggal  (Jan 25, 2019))

    I was 19 in '97 and can say that the 80's were the time of high rise noisy athletic pants and the 90's were low rise. They wouldn't be so low that she couldn't wear them on YouTube, but I think they might be hard to find now so maybe that's why they are high...Everything else on the video looked great and was a great homage the the late 90's. I was all about the minimalist look ha!

  • Omnia Mythica  (Jan 12, 2019))

    +Baba Yaga That's your opinion. I have mine.

  • So Fia  (Aug 29, 2017))

    "I was barely a person in 1997" I LOVE IT😂😂

  • Raspberry Mint  (Dec 14, 2018))

    Spending 99% of her time in the one dress

  • Cornèlia Sala  (Dec 10, 2018))

    I was 6 😬

  • Naiana de S. Nascimento  (May 28, 2018))

    When she says 1997, all that comes to my mind is Sabrina's looks in Sabrina the Tennage Witch. I love the style on the first seasons of Sabrina, the high waisted pants and skirts, flannels and half sheer half solid color blouses, i just loved 'em and if i dressed like the show today no one would noticed.

  • Liane Jenkins  (Nov 9, 2018))

    Sabrina. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Cher from Clueless. Buffy was it for me though, I legit use to call tank tops "buffy tops" 😂 😂 😂

  • Christy Blue  (Sep 22, 2018))

    Naiana de S. Nascimento me too. 😂

  • Nails Are Life  (Jun 3, 2018))

    Anyone else feel old when she said she was barely a person in 1997? Just me? Ok.

  • Mariaaa N.  (Jan 23, 2019))

    Nails Are Life I wasn’t even a person in 1997, I was born in 2005 :D

  • Larimar Star  (Jan 7, 2019))

    I graduated high school in '97. Delia's was my aesthetic for sure. But the "alternative" fashion was anti-fashion, and I wore a lot of thrifted/vintage things as well.
