If you follow along on my Instagram stories you know on Tuesday night I was at 90s Trivia in Hamilton hosted by Hub of the Hammer. Our team didn’t do as well as I thought we would—so now it’s time to brush up. It’s hands-down my favourite era, mostly for nostalgia’s sake, but also because it was objectively awesome! Since I am obsessed, and you just may be too, I thought I would share some of my favourite 90s inspired Instagram accounts, so that the obsession may continue.
Growing up we would watch The Nanny as a family, and Fran’s style was one of the first formative influences in my style. I knew that she had all the confidence in the world to wear whatever her heart desired, and all I knew was that I wanted to be her when I grew up.
Capsule98 is nostalgia heaven. She is like me and has kept basically everything from the decade, plus bonus points for having walls that looked like mine circa 1998/99. Especially all the Leo heads…
This person just gets me.
The iconic collection of 90s celeb candid shots and screen grabs.
Everything from 90s commercials and products, to pop culture, and retro videos.
Here is another one of my early fashion icons. She was rule when it came to style in grade 6. I can only imagine how annoyed my mom would have been with the phrase “but Cher wouldn’t weat that.” Needless to say I had the plaid skirt, mini backpack, and beret.
You know an account is good when they have a pic of Leonardo DiCaprio that I have never seen before. Especially when it is as gold as this.
One of my go-to shows for 90s nostalgia is 90210. Although in the early 90s I wasn’t allowed to watch it, which was heartbreaking as my older friends were allowed, it didn’t stop me from having the Brandon, Dylan, and Brenda Barbie Dolls. Now as a full grown adult I let myself watch it on repeat, and now I understand why when Luke Perry came back in 1998 it was such a massive deal. Also… Donna + David = FOREVER!
Although they don’t strictly do 90s illustrations, they ate all perfection.
