90’s Grunge Et Moi

An outfit for the 90’s grunge scene.

Hey Lovelies, how are you?

Some of you might not know this but I’m actually an oldie. I was born on the thirteenth December nineteen eighty nine, I’ll repeat that –  1989. I’m a child of the 80’s (kinda), which therefore means that I have a pretty good recollection of all things 90’s. I remember when Meredith Brooks released ‘Bitch’, The Dinosaurs was on TV, Freddos were actually 5 pence and when cassette tapes were no longer available in Virgin Megastores (yes, you heard right).

For me, grunge styling is a band t-shirt, oversized cardigans of varying colours, acid-wash baggy jeans, Doc Martens and a plethora of piercings. If you can’t picture that you can go and watch these music video’s:

The Man Who Sold The World – Nirvana
What’s Up – 4 Non Blondes
Weak – Skunk Anansie
When I Come Around – Green Day

… And if you’re still not sure go and watch an MTV show called Daria and you’ll get the idea.

As a result, as much as I did back then, I now love this style. It was so relaxed but also such a statement at a time where the world was obsessing over the glitz and glamour (much like now). The grunge scene was a true focal point of music and people coming together in unity to celebrate all the unpopularities of the world. A real, go fuck yourself to everyone that was applauded for the mundane 9-5 routine (in my opinion, anyway).

So, this outfit is inspired by all of that good stuff, the memories of my childhood. My idols, the Dolores O’Riordans, the Linda Perrys, the Sheryl Crows and the Shirley Mansons. Thank you, for giving me the best soundtrack, fashion choices and crazy hair styles a girl could ask for.

    No Need To Argue was a stunning album, from start to finish. Defo my fave Cranberries album. Zombie was a must to learn on guitar and drums. Ah, the memories!!

    Dolores O’Riordan was badass!! She never gave a fuck. I remember seeing The Cranberries live during a time when other bands were trying too hard to be Britpop. Instead The Cranberries just did their own thing. Loved that about them, which is why Linger is the 1st song I ever learned to play on guitar!!

      Linger is such an amazing song, my favourite is Ode To My Family. I think No Need To Argue was one of the first albums I was given. I remember loaning it from the library haha! When I sing along, I always sing with an Irish accent. I have NO shame haha!
