We All Know These ’90s Baby Fashion Choices Our Mamis Made Before We Could Say No

With every decade comes different cool fashion trends, but for ’90s babies it wasn’t all that great. To our moms, we looked super cute and preciosas, but honestly… what were they thinking?!

Here’s what we had to put up with…

1. Earrings that were half our weight in gold.

Whether it was at the swap meet, Claire’s, or abuelita doing it at home with a needle and ice, piercing our ears was mom’s priority when we were babies.

2. Gold bracelets with your name engraved.

In case you separated from your parents?

3. Your jewelry set wasn’t complete until you added a religious gold necklace with a pendant.

You were basically all blinged out by the time of your bautizo. #2CHAINZ

4. But mom also did the most with our clothes, like these socks with decorative ruffles.

Your mom seriously refused to buy you regular socks. In her view, if they didn’t have the ruffles, they weren’t cute.

5. Dresses that were nearly impossible to waddle.

Because you needed something else to weigh down when you’re barely learning how to walk. They were basically training you for your quinceañera.

6. You also needed huge, puffy sleeves to balance out the rest of your dress.

No puff=no swag.

7. When mom wanted to dress us down, knitted everything was her go-to. From head to toe.

From socks to dresses, pants and hats, 90 percent of your baby outfits were hand-knitted.

8. She almost always capped off your look with huge hats.

Apparently the bigger the hat, the more chula you looked… Or maybe she was just trying to hide your pelos parados.

9. Or with laced headbands and huge flowers.

Accessories are always a cute addition, but these headbands were just extraaaa.

 BONUS: And once mom dolled you up, she made sure you took a picture with a holy, religious backdrop.

Because you can’t let a good outfit go to waste.

Women Are Sharing Their Sage Heel Shopping Advice

Women Are Sharing Their Sage Heel Shopping Advice

When it comes to heels the options can beyond overwhelming. From stilettos and block heels to wedges and kitten heels, these pumps are proof that when it comes to shoes it’s not always a one-size-fits-all kind of game.

Women on Reddit recently gathered around on a discussion board, to share their best type of heel advice for women.

Check it out below!

“Sarah Flint is great if you really want to invest. Cole Haan is my personal go-go, but I’ve had success with Corso Como as well. J. Crew also has a surprisingly good selection of footwear and I snag trendy or statement shoes from them from time to time. All of these makers have small sizes in-stock as part of their standard offering.

For heels in particular I think committing to leather is important–if you buy them in the proper size they’ll “mold” to your feet in a way that synthetic materials never will. Pretty important for us wee ones who often have to deal with things running large to begin with.

“Thanks for the advice! Every pair of Cole Haan shoes I’ve tried haven’t been my favorites, so I’ll check out the others!”- mimosaandmagnolia

“While decidedly not an expert on heels, I checked the gf’s closet and found lots of Cole Haan and Burberry. She’s on her feet all day doing rounds at the hospital so she’s literally put a premium and is willing to pay a premium to be comfortable when she dresses up (however infrequent that’s been in the last year).

These may be outside your budget if purchased new, but may be brands to keep an eye out for at Nordstrom Rack, etc.”- itsonlyastrongbuzz

“Cole Haan for me. I have a pair of navy capped toe pumps that have lasted me for years and are very comfortable. For particularly small feet, I would recommend a Salvatore Ferragamo Vara pump. They’ve got a nice low heel, come in loads of colors, and they too last a long time if you take good care of them.”- Foxlurker8

“Hi! I think Franco Sarto makes a super cute block heel. Practical but still chic. I usually just go to nordstroms and try a bunch on.”- billnyegirl

“I bought a pair of heels once by Franco Sarto and they left blisters on my feet. I was so disappointed because after wearing them for a day my blood stained the tan leather.”- mimosaandmagnolia

“Definitely an investment but it may be worth looking at M Gemi? I bought a pair of their suede loafers on sale and love them — they are so comfortable! Looks like their heels go down to a size 35 (EU) which I think is close to your size?”- WannaWearMyRedShoes
