The other day, a co-worker of mine suggested that it’s much too early for 90s nostalgia. I wasn’t even a part of the conversation, but very nearly spit cold afternoon coffee all over my desk in my rush to promptly correct him.  l informed him, on behalf of millennials everywhere (and, well, the Internet) that he’s dead wrong. All he’d need to do is spend ten minutes on Buzzfeed or Hello Giggles, and he’d see the appetite for the 90s (and early 2000s, even) is stronger than ever. Stronger than yesterday. Now it’s nothing but my way. My lonliness ain’t….WHOOPS I’M BRITNEY-ING AGAIN. See? The force is strong. Just ask Terri or this chick.

Anyways, If I were to offer an objective suggestion for the rule that would allow one to wax nostalgic about a certain decade, I’d say that once clothing from that decade starts selling in vintage shops, wax away. I picked up this 90s mini from the lovely Girl on the Wing in Hamilton a few months ago, and it’s a straight-up Zack n’ Kelly Dress. What is a Zack n’ Kelly dress? It’s what my sister Laura and I would call our Barbie dresses that were particularly snazzy, worthy of being worn by Kelly and adored by Zack. I have very vivid memories of demanding “MY TURN WITH THE ZACK ‘N KELLY DRESS!”

My own Zack n’ Kelly dress is floral, bright, and, thankfully, not quite short enough to send me to Mr. Belding’s office. But even so, I can say with some certainty that Kelly Kapowski would’ve rocked dress all the way into the college years. I’ve already offered my personal favourite Saved by the Bell moments on this blog back in 2012, so I think I’ll just leave it at that.

Sigh, remember 2012? Good times.

    Wow! The colors! Amazing 🙂 Very Kelly and so modern at the same time. I am so happy the 90’s are back. There’s a bar near me that even does 90’s night once a month and you can bet I’m there for it 🙂

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if
    you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
