If you haven’t already noticed, grunge is back. 1990’s inspired fashion was all over the runway this fall. Out and About in San Diego you’ll spot an abundance of flannel and thermal shirts, combat boots, grunge band tee’s, oversized sweaters, and long billowy skirts. Snap up a pair of 1990’s Doc Marten combat boots at your local thrift store before it’s too late.
I spotted 22-year-old Tiffany Acevedo at Urban Outfitters in PB. She collects Nirvana t-shirts.
“I can’t stand when people wear band t-shirts when they know nothing about the group. Nirvana is my favorite band,” Acevedo tells me.
Acevedo’s t-shirt is by Chaser, her jeans are Carmar from L&F in La Jolla, her scarf is American Apparel, and her jacket is Free People.
Tiffany’s leather jacket is her favorite wardrobe item.
Bernadette Vela is a leopard print fan. Her canvas shoes are a recent Urban Outfitters score.
“My favorite wardrobe item is my faux fur leopard print coat from Forever 21. I live in it,” the 25-year-old tells me.
Vela’s oversized sweater is from Anthropologie. Her sweatshirt is Free People, and her scarf and jeans are from Urban outfitters.
“I’m the PB Urban Outfitter's store merchandising manager so most of my stuff is from here,” she tells me.
When asked what her biggest fashion pet peeves are Vela says, “I don’t like sloppy shoes like Uggs and flip-flops. Also, I don’t like leggings as pants.”
