24 Things We Miss From The 90’s
We’ll always have a special place in our heart for the 90’s. Although our favorite era may have come to an end over 16 years ago, we still find ourselves pining for these 24 things we miss from the 90’s.
1. 90’s teen magazines
Even poring over the ads was fun!
2. dELiA*s Catalog
3. Jordan Catalano
4. Mix tapes
Making the perfect mix tape was an art form. Receiving one meant someone liked you enough to spend hours waiting for the right songs to come onto the radio. *Swoon*
Ah, the good old days when it was possible to convey so much *~eMoTiOn~* with a simple away message and when you were too innocent to realize that your 14 year old “internet boyfriend” from Daytona Beach was actually a middle-aged predator.
7. Oregon Trail
9. Trapper Keepers
11. Slap bracelets
12. Roller skating parties
13. Receving (and passing) notes
Remember when folding notes was an art form? These days, we can barely be bothered to return a text, much less write a letter. L.Y.L.A.S. B.F.F.A.E!!
15. Hair wraps and friendship bracelets
16. 90’s scents
While you won’t see us spraying one of those old school Gap scents on us before heading off to work, we do sort of wish we could get our hands on some for smell ja vu purposes. Fun fact: Gap Grass is currently going for $125+ on eBay.
17. Book It
If we still got free pizza for reading books, well… I’d have a lot of free pizzas. Can we make this happen??
18. Young Leonardo DiCaprio
Remember when young, mostly-innocent Leonardo DiCaprio made us swoon in Romeo and Juliet and Titanic? Unfortunately, the older he gets, the closer he begins to veer towards greasy Jack Nicholson territory. *tears*
19. 90’s supermodels
Remember when models had curves, looked glam and seemed like people you’d actually want to be friends with? Also: we still want to be Cindy Crawford when we grow up.
20. 90’s music videos
90’s music videos are filled with an abundance of hideous color-coordinated outfits, fish-eye lenses and coordinated dance routines. So ridiculous, yet so, so good.
Almost every single one of our favorite 90’s TV shows was on ABC’s TGIF lineup, particularly Full House, Boy Meets World and Family Matters.
22. Landline phones
Sure, cell phones are great – but it was way easier to screen calls in the 90’s. That whole “I haven’t been home much lately!” excuse doesn’t cut it anymore. Now, we’re forced to be connected 24/7, whether we like it or not.
Remember when this scene from Clueless was funny and not, like, normal?
23. Sweet Valley High
Although we firmly believe that Sweet Valley High totally ruined our lives, we still hold a special place in our hearts for Jessica and Elizabeth’s antics.
24. 90’s fashion
KIDDING! In the words of Cher Horowitz: Ugh, as if!
