The Truth Is Out There
So I'm officially about a year late to the party, but this autumn I'm really hankering after a bit of 1990s grunge in my wardrobe. I think I've overdosed a bit on the supersweet and the ultra-retro, and I just want to channel my old grumpy, grungey teen self a bit. Though I've heard goth is supposed to be making another appearance this winter, it hasn't as yet made an major appearance in the autumn/winter stuff coming on the high street, except in the form of this dress which I'm fast developing an obsession with. It's the perfect tribute to my teendom as a grungey, geeky sci fi nerd completely obsessed with My So-Called Life, Reality Bites, X Files, Dark Skies, and Millennium. (I didn't go out much as a teen, my life was pretty much homework, music and tv).
But boy do I love this dress! (Though that seems inappropriately bouncy and enthusiastic - I should be more like "yeah, it's ok, I guess"). It's so cool and it makes me want to dig out The Bends and listen to it on repeat like I used ta. Ah the good old days, back when I was so very miserable...
