Five '90s Fashion Trends You're Going to Want to Shop For

1. Choker Necklaces
The choker necklace is back! Once an accessory for the goth, steampunk, even hippie gals of the '90s, the choker necklace has been reincarnated and it is looking really chic this time 'round. My favorites below are the black leather and gold choker necklace from Ettika and the gold metal braided version from REVOLVE.

2. Slip Dresses

You know what you can wear with a choker necklace? A slip dress! From supermodel Kate to fictitious fashionista, Cher Horowitz, the slip dress was totally it in the '90s. Well the slip dress is back and better than ever. You can always go authentic and grab a vintage slip dress from the '90s like this vintage Vivienne Tam number from my Etsy shop, or you can shop one of these fabulous picks below.

3. Mood Rings

My love of stacking rings came from growing up in the '90s. There was the Yin Yang ring, those jelly rings that were on the tops of Hard Candy nail polish, and then there was the mood ring, which for you history buffs out there technically came about in the '70s but had a huge revival in the '90s amongst other seventies trends. Today mood rings are a bit fancier and glamourous than its predecessors, however if you're feeling extra nostalgic you can still get this ring set from Claire's for just under $7.
Check out some of my other favorite mood rings below.

4. Mom Jeans

There was a time when you wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of your mom's jeans from the '90s. Now you wish had asked your mom to keep those pair of jeans she had in the '90s. If only you had known better! Yup, mom jeans have made a comeback and so have vintage Levi's, as seen on actress/fashion blogger, Ashley Madekwe below. You can grab a pair of vintage Levi's just like her's here.

You may have already seen this trend all over Hollywood or even on your favorite fashion blogger. I've owned this pair of '90s style round sunglasses for nearly a year and I still love them. Because a pair of round sunglasses hits the perfect balance between casual and glam, you can wear them just about anywhere.

What do you think of these '90s trends? Which one would you shop for?

Chic Bags for the Weekend Under $100

This weekend may be coming to an end but that doesn't mean you can't get ahead for the next. If you're looking for a good-looking bag without the hefty price tag, you've come to the right place. I've searched all over the interwebs for the following chic and affordable bags (all just under $100!) that are perfect for your next weekend activity, whether it's brunch with your friends, a stroll around town, or late night drinks with a date. Whenever you choose to use these bags, all of them prove one thing, just because something is inexpensive doesn't mean it has to look cheap. Can I get an, "Amen!"?

Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 Nasty Gal Bag
Nila Anthony Rodeo Tip Leather Satchel ($42, Nasty Gal)
Do your bags tend to get smaller when the weekend rolls around, too? This Nila Anthony satchel bag might be tiny in size but it's definitely large in personality. I love its cheeky nod to the inner badass cowgirl.

Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 ASOS Bag
Square Clutch Bag with Slanted Zip Top ($24.26, ASOS)
The tip for shopping for chic pieces that are inexpensive, not cheap, is to keep it simple. Black and gold is a simple but expensive looking color combination as long as the material looks good and the gold hardware is kept tasteful. Look for faux suede in black, like this clutch bag from ASOS, which tends to look more expensive than its other lighter colored counterparts.
Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 Shiraleah Bag
Ananas Tote ($46, Shiraleah)
How cute is this basket weave tote from Shiraleah? This tote had me at pineapple. It's perfect for a weekend stroll or a trip to the beach.

Fringe Hobo Bag ($34.99, H&M)
For a boho chic vibe, try this fringe hobo bag from H&M. I love its blush pink color and the braided shoulder strap. The gold metal fasteners add a touch of luxe.

Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 Vintage Bag
Vintage '70s Clutch Bag ($42, CutandChicVintage)
You may have seen this clutch on my blog before. I modeled it for my blog post with Interiors by Jacquin back in March. You know that saying, "They just don't make it like they used to." Well for the most part it's true! If you're new to vintage, I highly recommend starting with vintage bags. Choosing a chic design will mean it'll never go out of style and it'll stay in excellent quality as long as you keep it stored in a dust bag under cool and dry conditions.

Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 Foley + Corinna Bag
Foley + Corinna Crossbody Leather Bag ($89.88, Bloomingdales)
This crossbody bag is very chic, indeed. Wear it with a white button down shirt, a pair of vintage Levis, and a swipe of red lipstick for that casual Upper East side look. Next stop brunch and Bellinis. 

Chic Weekend Bags Under $100 Sole Society Bag
Cassidy Weekender Duffel Bag ($69.95, Sole Society
If by 'weekend bag' you thought a 'weekender', you'll like this duffel bag from Sole Society. I bought a similar weekender bag from Sole Society about two years ago and I still use it to this day. This affordable travel bag is perfect for short trips away. The best bit is it's made of vegan leather which is eco-conscious. I think this oxblood version adds an expensive, vintage feel to it.
