Weekend Review: 90's Party!




Last Saturday on 8/14/10 I went to a unofficial high school reunion party. I say unofficial because it was just something put together by a few classmates at someones house. Since I joined Facebook over a year ago, I have reconnected with many friends from high school. I had a close group of friends, about 6, who have been in my life ever since graduation day. Now with Facebook I have re-friended many more. It amazes me how we can all stay connected and keep in touch after all these years. Some friends it seems like no time has gone by and we are all still buddies like back in HS. So I know you are probably wondering how many years it has been since HS and what year I graduated. Well I have always said I am older than most of the Fatshion Bloggers. I am not afraid to say my age, I just hope it doesn't scare anyone either!  I was class of 1993 and we had a 17 yr reunion party! Yikes! 1993 seem like ages ago, but honestly I feel like it was just yesterday. After reconnecting and hanging out with my former high school friends, I am totally pysched for the 20 yr in just 3 yrs. It's so funny I still remember being part of the 10 yr reunion committee and thinking wow 10yrs have gone by so quickly! Now here I am talking about the 17 yr & soon to be 20 yr reunion. Times have sure changed since the 90's and so have I.  Still the same person basically, just a lot more confident, secure and embracing of my self & body.  If you would had told me back in 1993 I would one day be blogging on the internet about fashion, I would probably laugh & say you're crazy! I did dream of going to FIDM or some other fashion school after graduation, but it never happened. It never happened because I felt being a chubby girl I could never fit and be accepted in fashion. Even though looking back at HS pics I was about 50lbs lighter and could have rocked any fashion being only about a size 14 (I wish!) Although my fashion choices were way limited, not having many cute stylish and trendy places to shop. I wore lots of men's jeans and shirts. But it was the 90' and grunge look was in so it kinda worked out! Now I am sharing my fashion and style with the world! I've come along way baby!  I thought about sharing some now and then pics from HS, but still looking for some good ones.  All I found was my cap & gown portrait from the year book.  I pretty much look the same as high school, just a few extra pounds and a few little wrinkles. Also promised Nik from XOXONikStar I would do here High School Confession feature, so if you want to see my HS pics you have to wait. :)

Here are some pics of what I wore and with my buddies from HS. Enjoy!

Bought this strapless tube top maxi dress, loved the style, but not loving the strapless!

 My outfit for the reunion party, Maxi dress from Ross, shrug from Target & Sam Edleman sandals
I decided to give maxi dresses another chance this summer.


My other BFF, known her since 5th grade.
Catching up with the girls and enjoying wine from plastic cups, we are classy! LOL

Partial class of 1993, a few more people showed up after this photo. Everyone was so happy to see each other.

  4. Wow, I can't believe you graduated in '93. I definitely never would have thought you were an "older" (pssh, you are so not old) fatshion blogger. You look exactly the same now as in your high school graduation photo!
