Throwback Thursday: to my flock of butterfly clips.

This week’s post travels back to another one of my infamous 90s fashion-queen moments. It’s from 1999 when all I wanted was a navel ring, cool hair buns ala Gwen Stefani, and butterfly clips in every color.

I decided it would be funny to see if I could re-create my 90s outfit today. Ready?

Throwback Thursday Outfit: Summer 1999

I’m wearing a real flower in the photo — one that I probably shouldn’t have picked because I’ve since learned that’s stealing (sorry, Disney). Somebody thought it would hilariously add to my already over-dressed ‘do.

Is it bad that I’m considering getting these? No? Okay.

Not quite the same, but as close as I could find. I’m impressed I could find a one-size smocked crop tank from the 90s!

Not pictured (but I know for a fact I was wearing them): wedge flip flops. Not these, but close. The ones I had were taller with no heel and had a denim strap with an embroidered dragonfly on them. Pretty kickass.

What were you wearing in 1999?

The irony of 90s clothes being hip again is that my clothes from the mid-to-late 90s would still fit!
