The 90’s are back! As a child of the 80’s, I came in to my prime shopping age right around the time we were all watching Clueless so I bought many a chunky platform and plastic tattoo choker. I’m not saying I didn’t occasionally look ridiculous, but I have to admit that I’m a little thrilled to see so many great 90’s had-to-have-its at Target right now.
The clothes are the most obvious 90’s throwbacks but I have to admit that a lot of them border on costume-y. The good news is that if you wanted one of those Halloween costumes that (A) look like you tried but not too hard and (B) includes things that you can wear the other 364 days of the year, you can stock up on 90’s fashion and wear all your purchases at once on Halloween and then scatter them through your wardrobe the rest of the year.
Clothes are not the only retro products available and my favorite stuff is actually found in different departments. There are a ton of great ideas for the holidays and they’re priced at 90’s prices so big fat yay on that one. There are a bunch of 90’s toys (remember Bop It!) but the big ticket items I’d be looking for are the portable Sega Genesis and the Nintendo Super NES Classic edition. As for stocking stuffers, grab some holographic phone cord pony holders, a crushed velvet Scrunchie, a yellow Tamagotchi, and some extra shiny lip gloss with those little metallic flecks.
