I remember the ’90s as a time of liberation! There was a shift in the cultural paradigm and society was blooming on every level!
There was no social media and people were generally left to their own devices to have fun and be inspired.
The fashion was different and the antics were most definitely quite different than they are now.
Here is a compilation of a couple of things that marked the 90s. Things that will have you raising your eyebrows today!
1. Brown Lipstick
Even though brown lipstick had tried to stage comeback in these last couple of years, it was not accepted with the gusto and zest it was used to be worn with back in the ’90s!
2. Phone Numbers
We used to memorize so many phone numbers by heart you guys! Nowadays, I wouldn’t know my a number to save my life!
3. Making Plans
Sticking to previously made plans and being responsible and loyal to your friends was of utmost importance back in the days! There was no way of instantly rescheduling or just blowing the fuse on the whole thing altogether in a brief moment via texting as it is now!
4. Middle Parts
I think that middle parts had a huge comeback and were readily accepted! At least when it comes to girls!
5. Frosted Tips
6. Watching TV
Binge-watching shows?! Girl, sit down! You could only watch your show once per day if you were lucky and some shows were showing new episode only once a week! Be appreciative of what you have now!
7. Airport Meetings
Airport traffic is now a strictly regulated thing. Back in the ’90s it was quite romantic to pick someone up from the airport!
8. Sweater around the Waist
Even though this was a ’90s thing, I still do it! I like this way of layering!
9. Photo Backgrounds
I find this extremely cheesy yet endearing in a way! It definitely reminds me of my childhood way too much!
10. The Macarena
Literally everything would stop once they would air this video on tv so I can catch up on the moves and learn them by heart! We were obsessed!
11. Pushing Someone in the Pool
Whoever has not pushed someone in the pool at least once has not lived life, I tell ya!
We actually had to move our asses and walk to the store back in the ’90s. I still do that though! I don’t trust online shopping when it comes to clothes!
13. Internet Patience
Oh, boy! This triggered me so bad! Thank you Gods of the Internet!
14. Sending Faxes
This was way back when documents were physical copies. Some companies still do it. I think it’s a rather romantic notion to follow the protocol of the olden days!
15. Platform Sandals
Stay woke! These are making a huge comeback!
16. Cassette Tapes
People passionate about cassettes are reviving the trend. The vinyl is back in all it’s glory as well. I say why not! Bring it on!
