THE MTV GENERATION

I'm a child of the '90's - I was born in the 1980's but I was 7 when the world entered the 1990's, and had some of my best years. MTV was in it's fledgling years, of course only the really well off families had it at first, because sky was super expensive and cable was only in the select areas at that time. So until we got cable at my house (which I would watch the music channels for hours hoping for a glimpse of the now defunct boy band Damage) I would wile away the hours playing on my Amiga 500, raising my Tamagochi, getting kitted out in Geordie Jeans and wondering what the hell this Pokemon was that everyone was talking about...what it a sweet or something?

Well when I saw this MTV t-shirt on ebay, I just had to have it and for its first outing, wear it suitably '90's style - baggy pants...check, crappy hat...check, over-sized necklace...check!

MTV slogan tee, ebay.
White wide-legged jeans, BershkaBelt, H&M
My old faithful Converse
Hat, Matalan

Panda necklace, Punky Pins
NYC, Madison Avenue Polish

 What do you guys out there remember about the '90s?
Have you all been enjoying the sun...I want to see the Barbour catwalk show today as part of Newcastle Fashion Week - really exciting to see my first runway show and I will be sharing the pictures with you very soon.
