Wow! Technology has been unkind to me trying to get this post ready to post to you guys. The struggle crashing computers not been able to edit and publish but still I struggled through. It may be late over in England but still daylight over here. I Apologise in advance as soon as I can I will edit all mistakes xxx
So I am sharing with you a brand I recently discovered. You may have heard of it you may not. Let me fill you in, the brand is called Ready to Stare
Now we all know how I'm a sucker for the 90's and I must say the owner from ready to Stare Alysse just gets it nailing the 90's flavour think clueless, fresh prince, saved by the bell all wrapped into one.
Let me catch you up on who Ready to Stare is. 'Founded in late 2011 in Chicago, Ready-to-Stare draws on Dalessandro’s experience curating ‘90s clothing and her training as a jeweler and metalsmith while studying at Loyola University Chicago and Lillstreet Art Center...As a trained metalsmith, Dalessandro uses traditional metalworking techniques such as sawing, forming, soldering, drilling, riveting and metal coloration to bring the collection to life.'
The latest collection which dropped today "it's a 90's kind of world" name speaks for itself but I also have some pages of my favourite looks from the lookbook. To see the rest I will leave link at the end trust me it's not one to miss.
Viewing this collection is like remembering the best days of my life. How could you not forget the endless choice of program's to watch setting up the VCR so you missed nothing. patiently waiting for the top 20 to come on waiting by the stereo to hit play just so you can have your own mixtape of the latest hits. The fashion faux pas and the clothing you just wish you had kept.
I Asked the owner Alysse some questions about her 90's kinda world?
Here is what she said....
1) As this collection is inspired by the 90's what was your fashion faux pas something, you regret?
This probably sounds crazy but I don't believe in fashion faux pas. My love of fashion is born from the innovators, the risk-takers, and the people not afraid to end up on the worst dressed list. Think Lil Kim's '99 VMA boob onesie or Justin and Britney's matching all-denim looks. These looks were judged harshly but years later, we remember them! These fashion faux pas and other bold looks from the 90s were actually inspirations for this collection. I love the idea of taking risks with fashion. Some people will get it; most people will judge it, but eventually, but years later, they will be copying!
2) Also as this collection has a lot of Vintage fashion, What Fave 90's clothing item do you wish you could to get back?
This collection was all about finally making some of the items I wished I could've found in the 90s. Since the movie Clueless came out, I wanted Dionne's red vinyl skirt and I designed one for this collection! I also made black PVC gloves like the ones seen in the Spice Girls "Say You'll Be There" video. I loved the bright bold Versace prints of the early 90s and I designed a pencil skirt with a similar print. This collection to me has so many of the pieces that I wished I had from the 90s.
So I ask you guys the same questions would love to know what was your fashion hit and misses of the 90's? What are your thoughts on the collection?
