vampires, mid-drifts, and other such things.

Because Justin and Jasper both go to bed early, I've recently taken to watching old shows while I do things for work. The latest installment I'm slightly ashamed to admit, is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Can we just take a moment and appreciate how far fashion has come since the 90's? Remember the mini backpacks? And what about spaghetti strap mid-drifts, tattoo chokers and overalls? And the best, those black elastic sandals? You know the ones I'm talking about.

Aside from the amazing fashion, there also is the cheesy violence and did they really need to make the vampires so grotesque. Twilight has given me such unrealistic expectations about how sexy vampires should be. Because before Twilight, all my vampire expectations were so realistic.

Perhaps I should try reading at night instead.

I have started watching Felicity on hulu. Seriously, 90s fashion attack to the max. Why were all the clothes so... baggy. and unisex? One of my personal favorites from the 90s were those white platform tennis shoes. remember those? The higher the better. I wonder what future generations will think of our fashions now.
