The ’90s are my decade. Why do you think I wear so much flannel, make regular references to “90210,” and sing “Doll Parts” at karaoke? Because it’s forever 1992 in my soul. Anyway, ’90s nostalgia is big right now with my generation, probably because we’re all hitting our mid-30s and -40s and tired of being cynical and too cool for school, and just want to harken back to our good ol’ younger days. That’s why I’m totally on board with the hair flip making a comeback. Oh yeah, the hair flip. You know, where it looks like you just ran your fingers through the front of your hair and then flipped it to the side, all casual and nonchalant-like. Sometimes the hair flip was all silky and slippery looking, like Alicia Silverstone in “The Crush” and “Clueless” and those awesome Aerosmith videos. There was the “sexy supermodel in a rock video” hair flip, the Donna Martin hair flip, which, if you touched it, sounded all crunchy and crinkly. And of course there was the Drew Barrymore circa-”Poison Ivy” (best Drew) hair flip. Are you feeling me? Click through to see which current celebs are rockin’ the hair flip and if you’re interested in giving it a shot, Lauren Conrad’s site, The Beauty Department, has a tutorial. Or, you know, you could just run your hands through your hair and flip that shit because it’s that easy.
Bonjour! I am back from Paris! I was supposed to be back yesterday, but I got detoured in Iceland. (Long story, but I went to the Blue Lagoon!) Anyway, back on the internet and look what wonderfulness has greeted me! “Game of Thrones,” re-imagined as a 1995 feel-good sitcom! Check out the opening credits above! [Cheezburger]
When we look back on our favorite TV shows from the ’90s, sometimes it’s the romances that stick out, like Zack and Kelly or Rachel and Ross — but what about the female friendships? Memorable girlfriends like the ladies of Sex and the City and the Beverly Hills, 90210 frenemies were always there to watch and relate to. And unlike in movies, TV friendships play out across several years, so we’re able to watch as the relationship grows and evolves. Here are our favorite TV girlfriends from the ’90s!
The girlfriends: D.J. Tanner and Kimmy Gibbler
Why we loved them: As childhood best friends, these two are there for each other’s every up and down. From boy issues to family drama, D.J. and Kimmy witness each other’s best and worst times. Kimmy’s goofy, happy-go-lucky attitude is the perfect complement to D.J.’s low-key rationality. Read more …
Winona and I recently made a very important discovery: There is no foul mood that can’t be cured by a ’90s dance anthem. It’s like the music of the decade was specifically created with funk-busting in mind. Whenever you’re having a crap day, all you really need to do is find the appropriate ’90s tune to lift your spirits and help you get your head straight. After the jump, Winona and I compiled a list of instant ’90s musical cures for whatever might be ailing you. Keep reading »
The other day, I complimented my friend Becca on her dress and asked her where she got it. “Target, like, three years ago,” she sighed. “My heart hurts for Target three years ago. Everything was so cute and fit me perfectly.” We got to talking about other collections and trends that we still yearned for, even though they were long gone. For example, I totally loved it when every store was stocking leggings and tunics a couple years back–so comfy and flattering! And I really miss those light-up sneakers from the early ’90s, but that’s kind of a given.
