Here is the second part to my list of favourite 90's femmes! Be prepare for an onslaught of make-believe words such as amazingness and greatness.
The Nanny always had some amazing fashion moments and great comedy, greatly due to the amazingness that was Fran Fine! Seriously, she is a great style icon. I'll even admit that her nasally voice grew on me over time. She also gave pretty solid life advice (case in point: "You shouldn't leave the house with things unresolved. That's why men die young"). And Grandma Yetta (LOVE)! I remember watching this show on and off as a kid and being very overwhelmed and awe inspired by Fran's outfits per episode. There were so many over the course of the show that I can't name them all, but graphic prints, gaudy sequins, animal print, bold colours and mini skirts were staples of her individual style. I can also remember a lot of tartan going on, but that was quite big in the mid 90's. I particularly remember that red sequin dress she wore in an episode - so beautiful (sequins are in general amazing). If I were a kid and required a nanny, she'd definitely be the one that I'd want. Fran, you're a damn inspiration to all of us that adore adorning ourselves with all the colours of the rainbow. I salute you.
Where do I start with Rayanne Graff? That hair, those clothes and just that personality in general. One of my favourite lines she says is "everything causes a scar - LIVING causes a scar" - she couldn't be anymore realistic than that. But back to her style; she had a lot of insane hairstyles, like the full head of mini braids, one section of wavy blonde hair in the front of her head, hair covered in multi-coloured plastic hair-clips and other foreign objects...her hair was like a bower-birds nest, you never know what you're going to find in it but it's always sure to be good! She also wore a lot of jewelry, dangly earrings and choker necklaces, she sure wasn't afraid to experiment. I like that fact that nothing she wear MATCHES, it all CLASHES. I love it! It's so refreshing and zany that it just works so perfectly! She's too amazing for this world, to be honest. She's from an amazing species of humanity that can make any combination of accessories and clothing look good.
I will never forget the first time Sabrina the Teenage Witch aired its first pilot on tv. I was hooked after watching it. Years on, I'm still in love with the show and still enjoy watching the reruns occasionally played. Sabrina's fashion sense was so typical of that transitional period between 1995 to the end of 1999 - I'm thinking lots of velvet, sheer blouses, cute fitted mini dresses, skivvies and plenty of layered clothing. The outfit I most loved was the one featured on every episode in the first series during the intro titles - the golden mini dress with those 70's style flared long sleeves and a scooped neckline - TO DIE FOR. Why don't I own it yet?!
Oh awesome 90's sitcoms, how I miss you. The flower hats take up a great portion of the fashion items featured in the show Sister Sister, which centered around the lives of separated-at-birth twins Tamera Campbell and Tia Landry. There were a lot of matchy-matchy type outfits going and and I adore it. SO MUCH DENIM too, and layered button up shirts over t-shirts. The plotlines of the show were definitely cheesy - especially the main concept of long lost twins reuniting after not knowing about each other - but I guess that's why we love them so much.
SHE HAS PERFECT STYLE. Seriously. I want to cry at some of the outfits Tori's character Donna Martin wears in Beverly Hills 90210 just because they are pure beauty. The headbands, the daisy-print dresses, everything equals greatness. Her hair was also perfect, set in that style which I so love and try to achieve with my own hair, but it never quite works the way I'd imagined it in my mind. Plus her Halloween costumes are great, as well as her prom dresses, such as the extravagant red ballgown she wore and that mermaid costume. There was never a dull moment in her wardrobe.
Oh my god, Vickie Miner has the sort of wardrobe I kind of dream and day-dream about constantly. She worked those platform shoes and floral tea dresses with an ease that I cannot comprehend, as well as her sunglasses and that fringed haircut. Unparalleled greatness 24/7. She was also fantastic in the attitude department, full of one liners such as this: "Évian is "naïve" spelled backward" - brilliant! Vickie Miner forever, people.
I also have another playlist, dedicated to France and all French related things.
Until next time, ♡
