☆But really, The 90s are Retro?☆

I can't believe that a time that only seemed like yesterday. No, really!! I can still hear the musical agony of teen rebellion called Nirvana.  And let us not forget the fashion worlds nose - dive into the dark dungeons of grunge and heroin chic; replete with overalls, and dingy lumberjack plaids. Hackeysack anyone?

But the 90s did have some less tragic moments. I mean that was the time of the...drumroll please..... SUPERMODEL!

We interrupt this blog post for a Drag queen moment: "Cindy...work mama!, Naomi...she is fierce! , Christy....foxy lady out of sight!" Okay, back to our regular blogger programming....

Teenagers with sex lives became the story line as Aaron Spelling resurrected Dynasty with a teeny bopper version called Beverly Hills 90210.  And we all tuned into the Dylan, Kelly, Brenda triangle and...... wait for it.....wait for it.....Donna Martin loses her virginity!  Oh the drama!

Nonetheless, the earlier 90s, my personal fav, were glamorous, colorful, golden, and full of big wind blown studio hair. VERSACE was King and we were all haunted by that damned perfectly placed Cindy Crawford mole!!! Who didn't want one?  You know you had that eyeliner pencil ready!! So here's to the 90s enjoy!!!

The cast of 90210 - How relieved were you when you discovered that they were 10 years past puberty?


I still adore Daria's dark wit and her annoying little sister Quinn.....


I told you it was a golden time and King Gianni was at the helm....


Supermodels - They really did rule the world, but at the cost of $20,000? Really?....


Doc Martens - the 90s take on the edgy rock princess meets Ska - boi.......


The Mole.....


Its still voted one of MTV's most controversial video premiers. It couldn't be aired until midnight....


I can't help it; it was a fashion heyday!!! Ok, no more Versace, I promise.....


"You better work"......


It was the movie that launched a million annoying Lisa Loeb radio requests..... "And you say..."


Groove is still in the heart!!! De - groovy, De - lovey, De - licious, Dee - Lite.....





Cross Colours were the rage and if we weren't in spandex, we were in our boyfriends baggy jeans....


He was always cute, but you know your heart stopped when he became.....


a Bad Boy..... 


Uh, oh, the darkness descends...eeek, GRUNGE.....


Well you have to have somewhere to wear all that plaid and teen agnst on your sleeve....


The movie that rocked my world!! Oh, how I longed for those bangs....


There was nothing like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time. It was like a door opened...


Marky Mark without the Funky Bunch and Kate Moss steam it up for Calvin Klein......


Hacky Sack anyone?................



The beginning of Apple's experimentation with color and the resurrection of the V - Bug...... 




Hip Hop loses two very talented men.........


A generation lost its voice.......


The Cosbys were moving out.......


The Conners moved in ........


And the Kids took over the Village. - New York Club Kids
