Girl of the 90s

…Maybe we were never really cool at all.

Beauty is Pain: Dangerous 90s Jewelry

You remember the stick-on earrings, the ying-yang pendants and the watch rings.  You’re not surprised to have seen the holographic and mood jewelry come and go, but you have to admit that some of the fads are actually concerning when looking back at them.

Choker Necklaces

<br>

Think about it. “Chokers” are, in essence, truly that.  Nothing like having the main passage-way for air, food and blood flow constricted…

Danger Scale: 6

Best Friend Necklaces

<br>

We’ve all been there… watching your “BFF” walk into school with bling that matches someone other than yourself.  As their knife plunges into your back, they wear your broken heart from their necks proudly.

Danger Scale: 7

Slap Bracelets

<br>

Slap bracelets.  SLAP bracelets.  You remember the cuts and bruises on your wrists.

Danger Scale: 8

<br>

<br>

<br>

<br>

<br>

Sex Bracelets

<br>

Try to call these harmless.   You and your friends used to whisper about the girls wearing black bracelets to school.  Why so dangerous?  One wrong move and you’ve ruined your reputation.

Danger Scale: 9

We all have our own story.  No matter the repercussions, 10-year-old you would say, “beauty is pain.”

    This blog gave me the giggles. Of course I remember all of the jewelry from those late 90’s. I wore the choker for almost an entire YEAR?!?! … if that is possible? I loved your incorporation of a “danger scale”. Great humor, Winnie!!

    Thanks! Cute post. Can’t recall slap bracelets from my day. The bracelets, yes! Armfuls of them!

    Great Blog! I definitely remember all of these, especially the snap bracelets! I remember my sisters and I snapping them on each other as hard as we can…. so they were definitely a little dangerous!

    Love the scale from 1-10. SNAP BRACELETS ARE DANGEROUS
