One of the things about being the youngest child is that you spend your childhood looking up to your older siblings. You want to be where they are; you want to be doing the things that they’re doing, like wearing dark purple lipstick, strutting down the street in Doc Martins and sporting super-stylish-chokers. You’re a nine year old that knows the TEN album front to back and are entirely convinced that if Eddie Vedder just had the chance to meet you, he would for-sure agree that you were a mature nine year old and that you should probably be allowed to wear dark purple lipstick.
. . .alas, this was never the case and you just made your way through the early part of the nineties yearning to be a part of a generation you didn’t qualify for.
There are just some things in life that can’t be replicated and the experience of being sixteen during the nineties is one of them . . . that is until recently.
The nineties are back, bitchez!
As you may have guessed, this has made Lecina the happiest! Libertee is presently on the phone with mom, hoping against hope she didn’t give away her Doc Martins.
The reality of the situation is, it’s unlikely those boots are still at home, but the good news is this trend is popping up in the coolest shops!
