Back in the day if you were a teen in the 90’s (or at any decade really!) and you were trying to be down with your peoples, you had to be just like them. When I mean just like them, I’m referring to how they would dress, down to the pair of kicks they would so covet. However, I was never like that, sure I was obsessed with their sneakers, because my parents could never offer them. Sure, the clothes they wore were giving on evil eye by yours truly. However, I was never down with the baggy pair showing off my unmentionables. I did go through a long to the knees white t-shirt phase, which quickly went out the window, when I took a glimpse of myself in the mirror. As time went by and I became what I fear the most…an adult. I realized that no matter how much I spend on clothes or not, it really doesn’t matter. You can wear those $200 dollar sneakers (which you saved up for), with a $2 dollar shirt and pants you found at the good will and still look good. It all depends on you, your attitude and the confidence to know you look good. Who cares if you can’t afford those must-haves, it’s whatever you drape on yourself, which will make people want to have what you have. No matter how much money you spent or didn’t!
