Look of the Day: 2oo0's k!nD@ w0rlD


It may be 2019, but ain't nothing wrong with an early 2000's steelo! Ever since I was a child growing up in the late 1990's/early 2000's (I've told this story over and over, but I have to keep reiterating it haha), I always wanted to dress like the grown womenz on the tv screen.

Josie and the Pussycats, Destiny's Child. Britney Spears, Moesha, and so many more were the sources of inspiration for my budding love for fashion.

I absolutely lived for the high waisted, rhinestone studded jeans, glitter tops, rainbow hair streaks, and all things tacky. Yes, a true element of 2000's fashion was tackiness. I've often seen so many website discussing how tragic 00's style was, but I lived for every bit of it. I'm sure I would have enjoyed myself thoroughly if I was adult back in the day.

Now this look in particular is actually from last summer. I was going to The Rink skating rink here in Chicago, an iconic skating center on the south side, and had to dress the part. 

Back in the mid to late 2000's, going skating was indeed the move for my friends and I. Skating has also always been a big deal in the city too.



I came across this super cute blue jean romper while thrifting and it screamed 2000's! I always wanted one of those joints back in the day but never got one. I went for a hip-hop look so I paired my vintage baroque jacket from Bold Spirit and my Timberland heels for the look.

I had these Timbs since like 2007 and only rocked 'em a few times! I honestly never really knew how and wear to wear them, until my style became solidified!


Of course I had to be extra af with the picture edits. Nothin' like a MySpace, glittery aesthetic to go with a 2000's look.



Until the next look!

  2. I so enjoyed this stroll down memory lane. I was in my prime during these years. I was out here looking fly/tacky with the rest of them. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t cute.
