I've had this dress since 1995. This is probably the first time I've worn it since 1997, though. It's been in a bin of clothes that I've been saving for Maya for when the 90s became "vintage." Now, fellow oldsters, don't freak out. Despite the fact that they play Nirvana and Pearl Jam on the classic rock stations, things aren't technically vintage until they're 20 years old, so while those color blocked shirts you wore in 1991 are vintage, your high school baby doll dresses aren't. Yet.
Anyway, I was going through the aforementioned bin to choose some things to give to her, when I came across this one. It still fit, though like my Free People shirt from the same year, quite a bit differently than it did 16 years and 50 pounds ago. I remember that I wore this on the first day of eleventh grade. I paired it with a cream colored baby doll tee and tan hiking boots. I was awesome.
A couple of times I considered shortening it, but never got around to it. I'm glad I didn't, because I think it's more interesting as a maxi dress than just another sundress.
I'll leave you with a 90s playlist.
Have a great weekend!
