They say trends come full circle and this couldn’t be more true at the moment, given the 90s revival we are currently seeing.
As a child of the 90s I am delighted by the return of denim on denim, logos and statement gold jewellery. As you can imagine, I’ve been embracing it full heartedly!
The moment the 90s officially claimed their comeback was at the Spring/Summer 2018 Versace catwalk show where they reunited a host of 90s supermodels to mark the 20th anniversary of the brand. It sent ripples of delight and excitement through the fashion community and marked the return of bold prints, metal mesh and iconic gold jewellery.
Thankfully, the look has already started to filter down to the high street and when I spotted this amazing pink and lilac bodysuit with a Versace influence for £24.99, I knew I had to have it. You can check it out HERE.
Being a 90s inspired look, I obviously had to pair it with denim and as much gold jewellery as I could get my hands on! However, I feel like this look is missing one thing and that’s a statement pair of gold earrings. They are currently top of my to-buy list.
Talking of 90s throwbacks, who else remembers the Christian Dior Saddle bag? Well, this is also making a major comeback. As part of Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection it has been reintroduced. It already has long waiting lists and from what I’ve heard an exorbitant price tag!
So, I did what any thrifty gal does and delved to the depths of my wardrobe to find my original Saddle bag from 15+ years ago.
On the catwalk, Dior styled them with a cross-body strap. I plan on buying the strap separately and simply adding it to give me next season’s bag for a fraction of the price.
Nothing makes me happier than being able to dust off an old bag and give it a new lease of life!
If you want to do something similar yourself you can still pick up vintage Saddle bags for a bargain price but be warned, prices are going up and will continue to do so when the new one hits stores in late August.
