You guys, 90s fashion does not only consist of baggy clothes, boot-cut jeans and grunge. Please refer to the picture above for really good 90s fashions.

Who is that model, you’re wondering? That is Krissy Taylor. During the early 90s, sisters Krissy and Niki Taylor were fresh-faced models who were everywhere until Krissy’s sudden death at the age of 17.  Before that, they were high-fashion’s only sister modeling duo. In fact, look at this video interview to take a peek behind the scenes of the Taylor sisters.

Anyway, back to THE plaid mini. I’m pretty sure I had an outfit similar to this in the late 90s. And, you know what? I want it again.

Let’s dissect the ensemble. I mean, there’s:

Mini.  Check mark symbol
Suspenders. Check mark symbol
Long-sleeve turtleneck. Check mark symbol
Suede Knee-High Boots. Check mark symbol

Add some tights and you have a perfect fall/winter outfit.

      That is NOT Krissy Taylor in the movie clip._ That is Alicia Silverstone! :)

      Oh, how I miss these days…beauty and fashion were so fun then. And I miss little Krissy…she was my all-time fave. RIParadise, sweet girl.

      Also…yes, that absolutely is Krissy (with sister Niki) in the video clip at the end. The top photo is indeed of Alicia though.
