Why did these ever catch on? They were so uncomfortable? They weren't altogether stylish.
The film, at the end of the day is a fantasy for any girl who wants a bad guy. It's a fantasy for people who think they can "fix" someone who is misguided just by knowing them.
Blair Waldorf was the ultimate queen bee, and ever since Gossip Girl ended, Monday nights haven't been the same without a weekly dose of her snark. But before there was Blair, there was Libby, Amber, Courtney, Sandi and Nicole.
Legends of the Hidden Temple was my favorite. It was slightly spooky, there was a giant talking head and creepy obstacle courses where kids would get snatched up by weird Island people.
High school isn't much different the second time around for Josie Grossie, she's still a loser but at least she gets to make out with her teacher. The end.
Today is Kurt Cobain's birthday. He would have been 46 years old today had he not committed suicide at the age of 27.
Pat yo' weave, girl. The 1990s were a time of luscious locks, crimped curls and those infamous, dang, butterfly clips. We all had them.
My sadness over the loss of Saturday mail got me thinking. What other things no longer exist from our childhood? Come, reminisce with me.
Let us not forget, though, that we were all kids once, with our own incredibly strange obsessions. At the time they were the coolest things ever. Looking back, what the hell was wrong with us?
"If you hadn't done it, some other loser would have so quit milkin' it," Nelson, the school bully says, as Lisa proudly announces to her classmates that she edited the entire thing. No one cares. No one even cares to sign Lisa's yearbook.
Today we pay homage to our favorite alternative ladies who have become iconic of 1990s womanhood, humor and third wave feminism.
I don't know if it's the cold weather that makes me movie-crazy, but I am so pumped for this season's flicks. I've been drooling over the trailers for Zero Dark Thirty since they came out.
Who doesn't love the movie Clueless? It is a quintessential '90s fim with amazing fashion, dry and snappy humor and teenage girl/first world problems. I highly recommend seeing the film - quite possibly with a bottle of wine and your BFFs. Anyway, for your friends who quote Clueless like they do Mean Girls these will make some great gifts and stocking stuffers.
We all know the kids in our favorite '90s shows had amazing personal style. From Clarissa Explains It All to Rupert The Bear, those kids had some major swagger. They mixed prints, graphic images, and baggy shapes to create some really cool looks. It isn't surprising that those grungy, yet vibrant colors and patterns have made an epic return. We found some snapshots of our favorite '90s characters in action. We think they'd make amazing street style photos even in 2012.
So this one time in third grade, this girl Jasmine came up to me like, "Do you use the rolly lip gloss?" Then she took out this small black bottle of Kissing Fruit Gloss in pineapple.
The 1990s were a magical time when teen and children's television was top notch. No, not every show was about being famous or obscenely rich, the shows featured teenagers who didn't wear designer clothing and had pretty hum drum lives.
You don't want your fashionable friends jacking you swag? Do you? Do you?! Of course not.
Mmm, the 1990s. Remember a simpler time when how cool you were was measured by how awesome your lunch was?
X-Men ultimately conveys the beautiful message: Yeah people may not understand you, they may even hate you, but it's because they've failed to realize that you're a human too.
Lisa Frank's beautiful art has the inflation rate of a Picasso. Can't snag some of her precious mini erasers for 25 cents, those babies are $10 for a pack of six now.
In so many ways, we really had it good as kids. We had awesome cartoons, excellent (read: awful) fashion, and most of all, really great candy. Am I right? There are so many candies that used to be all over the place that I never see anymore. Of course, there are always the classic candy bars that stick around forever. The weirder stuff might not last as long, but it sure does bring back memories.
Do you ever look back at old photos of yourself as a kid and think, what was I wearing? Luckily, we grew up in the 90s, which is an excellent excuse for horrible fashion choices. So many awful things were happening in fashion then. One thing in particular that little kids get away with is ugly shoes. So many of the shoes we wore as kids seemed awesome at the time, but were really atrocious.
Salt-N-Pepa got started in the 80s of course, so they've got all that awesomeness going on, too. But I remember them mostly as they were during my childhood in the 90s. I love their videos, and you should, too. Lyrics: yes. Dancing: yes. Outfits: yes. Girl power: yes. You'll see what I mean.
