Get The Look: What Would Claudia Wear

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-What-Would-Claudia-Kishi-Wear-Babysitters-Club

Soooo… I pretty much like to draw my fashion inspiration from Claudia Kishi of Babysitters’s Club fame. Remember that?!? The best book series / TV show of my childhood life. It was kind of like “Girls”… but minus all the sex and naked-ness. If you were a child of the 80’s / 90’s, you know what I’m talking about.

The 90’s were hands down the best decade as far as fashion was concerned. Some would argue against me, but they would be wrong. Claudia was a hipster-rebel with a passion for fashion, and I’m pretty sure she was only a member of the club to fuel her shopping addiction ( a girl after my own heart ). I mean, money talk$. She had a seriously kick ass Seattle grunge scene thing going on. She always looked like she had just scored at the Urban Outfitters sale, and this is before Urban Outfitters was really a thing. So, cheers to you, Claudia! Thanks for keeping me inspired for all these years :)

Get The Look: Pretty In Punk

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Pretty-In-Punk

It’s not a shocker that punk / grunge has totally made a revival. I dare you to walk out your door without spotting someone sporting some Doc Martens with a flannel tied around their waist. Seriously. Good luck with that.

I for one, am thrilled. Some would say that the trends of the late 80s / early 90s were horrendous… I would disagree. This was probably my FAVORITE  time for fashion. I may have been a kid, but I knew a good thing when I saw one. Babydoll dresses topped off with a flannel were my jam. I lived in my Doc Martins and didn’t leave the house without my mini-backpack… probably filled with pogs.

Fast forward 20 years later and not much has changed. This is still one of my favorite looks. I say, go for the grunge… just polish it up a bit. Think crop tops and fitted skirts or plaid leggings… and don’t forget to accessorize!
