Come As you are. As you were.

Do you know that Kurt Cobain took his own life 17 years ago today? It’s so odd to think that I was only 10 years old when it happened and yet I was already listening to so much Nirvana. I remember my friends and the older kids being horrified at the loss of someone we all related to, or wanted to relate to. To be honest, it still makes me a little sad.

In general, my mind has been thinking 90′s. Going back into your high school bedroom will do that to ya. I’ve been rediscovering the grunge music that helped me achieve ultimate moodiness as a teenager. I’m thinking fondly back on the one pair of JNCO jeans I owned and my Rage Against the Machine t-shirt with the gun-toting nuns on it. I’m remembering my awesome Courtney Love impression (it’s easy, just strum a guitar and scream obscenities as loud as you can). And I’m thinking long dresses and combat boots look pretty damn cool. I’m not the only one- I tweeted a pic of this outfit and got a pretty positive response. Perhaps we’re all a little homesick for the 90′s. Shall I set up a slumber party for everyone? We can watch The Craft and listen to this awesome new band, Garbage.

    I mourned. And I was doubly troubled when I realized he actually took his life on my bday. I remember when Courtney read the note. I remember MTV basically stopping all programming to focus on what happened. Ugh. I still mourn on some level. Such a huge devastating loss.

    I love your outfit. I was thinking about buying that dress but I fear it would look bad because I am not long and lean like you.

      This dress runs pretty small, Jess. I got it in a large (mostly for length) but it definitely is smaller than a normal large.

    I love this, so cozy. The rugged mix withe florals is a favorite style of mine.

    Yes! The dress and boots are perfect. I love that the 90s are making a comeback. If you’re having a flashback slumber party count me in!

    I tried to impress Gregor with my (twitter-sourced) Nirvana knowledge yesterday, saying “You know what today is, don’t you?” He responded, “Actually, they found him on the 8th. But yes, this is the day they think he died. … You’re talking about Kurt, right?”

    YES!! I can totally relate to this right now! I’m currently working my way through My So Called Life.. I’m pretty addicted. It’s reflecting in the way I dress as well, my trusty Docs and long floral dresses similar to the amazing one you’re wearing! If you’re into it, you should definitely watch an episode or two of the show. So so good. What could be better than a moody teen (decked out in flannel and floral) wallowing in self-pity on her bed listening to.. the Cranberries?! This post is awesome. I love your outfit so much.
