Super Sunday Favorites: Empire Records

April is the beloved month of Rex Manning Day! Even though it’s officially April 8th, we’re still celebrating. This past weekend we headed to one of our favorite local bars (the Mews) for a celebration of Rex Manning Day, featuring bands covering the 90s (including Jessi’s beau!). So FUN! Highlights of our night included the Saved By the Bell theme song, Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” and Jessi rapping Salt N’ Peppa.

Anyway, we had Empire Records on the brain and were inspired to come up with some new picks themed around the movie. Enjoy!

Super Sunday Favorites: 90210 Beverly Hills

The 90s were awesome (duh) and one of the best products of the 90s was 90210: Beverly Hills. The cat fights (Brenda’s bitch face was monumental!), the sex (or lack thereof DONNA), the break-ups (who is dating Dylan this week?), the bizarre plot lines (uh oh, Kelly is in a cult), and of course: the fashion! We recommend wearing the 90s trend by getting inspired by our favorite ladies. Whether it’s lace, sheer, or floral, those girls were not afraid to wear anything, even if it was too small or too big. Here are our picks for Brenda, Donna, Kelly and our favorite pyromaniac/drug pusher, Emily Valentine:

Brenda

Nothing reminds us of Brenda more than the classic swimsuit top with denim. Don the dress and choker for a date night with your Dylan!
UO Flower Power Bikini :: Urban Outfitters
Secret Blossom Printed Dress :: Ruche
Mock Pocket Skinny Jeans :: Forever 21
Lacquered Triangle Choker :: Forever 21

Donna

Donna had a knack for the crop top and you’re in luck: they’re baaaack! We vote pairing them with this updated take on overalls and this floral baseball cap, OR take that floral look head to toe with matching shorts.

ASOS Bra Top with Gingham Print :: ASOS

Kelly

Kelly loved A) looking as sexy as possible and B) looking as old as she possibly could. This means a lot of doily and lace shirts and the grown-up giant blazers! And you can’t forget that scrunchie.
Pins and Needles Daisy Lace Swing Tank Top :: Urban Outfitters
Black Spot Longline Blazer :: Dorothy Perkins
Cotton Scrunchie :: American Apparel
Off-the-Shoulder and Wiser Beige Lace Bodysuit :: Lulu’s
