I love trends, (who doesn’t?) especially the old skool ones, that remind me of my childhood. (The good ol’ days, where you didn’t have to worry about anything except not to color outside the lines, ok back to fashion blog, not life 101.) One of my favorite trends right now is definitely the chokers! Its ‘s… so… 90s!! I remember when I was like what 7 maybe and would wear these, loved, loved these things.
Anyway as soon as I realized the chokers were back, I made it my task to go around my favorite stores to find the cutest chokers. I have to say, when it comes to jewelry or accessories I like to keep it as simple as possible, so I wanted a solid choker. After roaming around the mall for about 3 hours, I found that one of my favorite stores – Forever 21 has some of the cutest chokers. They have solid ones and also some more hip and chic ones at great Forever 21 prices!! But then it dawned on me… If I were a kid, like back in the 90s, where would I shop for chokers? I don’t think I would be shopping at Forever 21 or the rest of the other stores I now shop at. Then it hit me, I used to love shopping at Claire’s!! Ding, ding, ding! I knew wasn’t wrong about this. I went to Claire’s and found exactly what I was looking for! Solid, simple, chokers! It totally made my day (I was pretty stoked actually, not gonna lie!!)!! The best part is they had different colors, besides your typical black. My favorite one was of course the burgundy one or as Michael Kors calls it – merlot. It’s my favorite fall color. I think it looks great, on everyone, but yes, on dark skin Latinas like me 😉
So ladies, next time you are wondering where to shop for trends that we have seen in the past, remember to consult your box of ol childhood memories, it may just give you an idea of where to shop next for these old skool trends! Bisous mes amours! XOXO
