You’re from the 70s but I’m a 90s bitch!

1990 was a big year for me. I was in year 11, I had not idea what I wanted to be when I grew up (still don’t) and it was the year that I finally “became a woman.” My long-suffering boyfriend at the time had the shock of his life when I agreed that I was done with all the under the jumper action, and “tomorrow night we are going to do it.” (Mum, you can go back to surfing the web now please.)

He quite possibly jizzed in his pants when I told him. But I have no idea why he was so keen, given the fact that I was getting around looking like this….

To sexy for this gathered denim skirt.

1990 was a big year for the world. Mikhail Gorbachev was elected as the first executive president of the Soviet Union. West Germany and East Germany agreed to merge currency and economies. South Africa ended the segregation of libraries, trains, buses, toilets, swimming pools, and other public facilities and the evil Slobodan Milošević became the President of Serbia.

Sinead O’Conner was number one with Nothing Compares 2 U and we were all at the movies watching Pretty Woman.

As far as fashion, it was all about the choker. And other questionable attire.

I asked the readers of this blog to share what they were wearing in 1990. I call it a study in big hair.
