Designers at New York Fashion Week are channeling slacker-era Seattle’s unruly fashion with an affectionate tribute to all things grunge. The autumn/winter ‘11 shows are “haute off the street” with a Nirvana-style revival that hints at another whiff of teen-spirit in the air (yessssssss!). All too reminiscent of the early ’90s inspired trend, this prevailing motif suggests that every step forward yields one step back. Personally, I have always loved the 90's grunge look. I thought I was so sooo cool in 1998 wearing my essentials:
ü black nail polish that I would buy at Hot Topic (when it wasn't even Halloween)
ü Doc Martins, of course
ü mood rings and thumb rings
ü flannel (I still die for flannel)
ü black....anything and everything black (my dad always told me "your closet looks like a funeral!"
ü my torn cutoff Levi's

Ahhhhh...the good 'ol days. Glad they're back. I welcome you with open arms, while wearing flannel...obvi.
