In keeping with the last two posts (wearing stuff I've had for donkey's years), I present you with... a 90s velvet dress that my mom gave me for Christmas in 1997, I think (so I was 14 at the time). I loved it then, even though I think the whole 90s thing that is currently being revived was just going out at the time, so I wore it to fancy events for about a year and then stopped. But I could never bear to get rid of it, because it's so soft and I love velvet and it has always been flattering and I adored the Chinese-style neckline and capped sleeves. When I read that 90s style was back I thought, "yesssss," dug it out of a box in my parents attic, and brought it along with me back to Europe. I'm so glad to have it back in my life, and it just goes to show, you should never get rid of anything you really like!
I've been loving it ever since it got chilly, and have been trotting it out for family dinners, drinks with old friends, and an evening of Wayne's World and air guitar last weekend in Bristol, which seemed appropriate!
