The Intro

Hello everyone!

Welcome to The 90s Aesthetic! I want to wholeheartedly thank you for stopping by and formally introduce my site to give you some insight as to what it is about. The 90s Aesthetic is an Urban Fashion and Lifestyle blog set to inspire other young women, such as myself, with a focus on fashion and self-care. So while this may seem like another fashion blog on the surface, it's so much more than that and I want to inspire others to unapologetically love themselves, just as I’ve learned to love myself. While fashion is the vehicle, self-love is the overall goal.

As a young black woman in this day and age, loving yourself can be an arduous task with constant odds stacked against you, whether it be the work of outside opinion, misrepresentation, or societal standards. I've decided to take on this high-stakes task by loving myself through the outlets of fashion and personal wellness. With all that's going on in today's society, we tend to forget how important it is to take care for ourselves, and as a black woman this can be almost impossible given the challenges I’m faced with in my daily life. Much like my existence, I don’t follow trends or try to fit into them, I bend standards to work for me and create my own. I use fashion to not only express myself, but to build confidence and care for myself as well. I wanted to create a platform that not only expressed my style, but incorporated and promoted various forms of self-care. So while placing various looks and outfits on display, I’ll also be providing Self-Care Tips to help keep the mind, body, spirit and well-being intact. By discussing things like hair, books, joy, music and events, I hope you’ll be inspired to reflect and take the first steps towards self-care.

I've learned that in order to be our best selves, we must do the foundational work to care for ourselves and never lose sight of our own value and importance. So again, thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope this blog inspires you to value and love yourself just as I’ve learned to. Welcome and enjoy!

Peace,
