I’m a child of the ’90s. At my first slumber party, I rented Hellraiser: Bloodline and had to eject it because it was freaking out my friends. I came of age watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I listened to endless hours of Nirvana.
My first pair of boots were Dr. Martens with little multi-colored flowers all over them. I really wish I had hung onto those.
My second pair? Hand-me-down Frye boots from my dad, worn by his sister, Leslie, in the ’70s.
Now, I’m 33 with 2 kids, a career in PR and marketing, a husband, a house, etc. I never grew out of loving things that were a little weird, and I’m still rockin’ DMs and Fryes.
