early nineties
I so agree about Twin Peaks. It was probably my biggest style inspiration for the early nineties. Like 1993-95. That and Russ Meyer movies. From Twin Peaks...Audrey, whats-her-face. Kind of a sophisticated 60s prep school girl look. The plaid...the pale matte faces, matte red lips. Short poufy sweater sets, cardigans, skirts, bodysuits.

I was also into simple early 1960s polyester or wool dresses. I curled my hair.

Little medium heeled oxford shoes. And sexy saddle shoes, oh god, I loved saddle shoes. I was so obsessed.

sailor pants.

medium-short a-line skirts, in brown plaid and muted tones. Then the version of that skirt, only as a dress with a sort of bib top. does anyone remember those? I had one in a nubbly plaid fabric.

Also, inspired by beyond the valley of the dolls, and all that early 60s hair and heavy eyeliner on top.

And then came all the club kid stuff...tiny little baby tees, with low-rise baggy skater jeans (of which jnco was the 2nd wave mass market version).

It so interesting that you mention the brown lippy. I was thinking of trying to find something similar.

Just like the gorgeous Emmanuelle Beart in this 1994 film L'Enfer

Oh yes, I remember the brown lip well. Brown lip + thin, overplucked eyebrows = one of the quintessential '90s looks.

Drew Barrymore was something of an icon back then -- dating Eric from Hole, buddying around with Courtney Love, wearing daisies in her hair.

Her hair was really covetable, then, too:

The '90s were when everybody discovered pomade for the hair. I remember thinking gel and mousse were so awfully '80s.

The little girl hair clips were popular, too -- part of that whole Courtney Love "kinderwhore" look (her term, not mine).

Yeah thats true the whole childish dressing e.g. Kids backpacks/ lunch boxes, little tiny cartoon tees, hair clips, knee high socks with doc marten boots

I am wondering if we will see the certain 90's heels returning. They look slim from the side and wide from behind. Do you know which I mean? I really dislike them.

Found a pic by www.healthline.com

However it looks even worse if the heel is also curved seen from the side

I love the 90s. I've been waiting forever for the death of that other era. The nineties will stomp all over the eighties' grave with its big black boots! bwaaaaaaaaahahaha.
