I own Saved by the Bell Seasons 1 – 4 on DVD. I am not ashamed. It’s still as funny, if not funnier, than the first time I watched them…20 some odd years ago. I had such a huge crush on Mark-Paul Gosselaar that I wrote to his fan club asking for a signed autograph…I’m still waiting for that autograph to come in the mail…
Since, I’ve been watching them for the last week and half between cleaning, getting ready and going to bed – I’ve come up with a few conclusions:
- I am Lisa Turtle.
- Zack Morris…need I say more?
- Jesse and AC’s relationship – dysfunctionality at it’s best.
- I love Jesse, Lisa and Kelly’s aerobics work-out music video. (By the way, how was it every OK to wear thong-spandex work-out body suits?) Let’s not forgot that this was also Jesse Spano’s caffeine addiction episode.
- “I can’t believe I’m at school on a Saturday morning to take the S.A.T – I’d rather be at the beach getting a T.A.N.” – Zack Morris (the epitome of 90s wit)
- How does AC Slater/Mario Lopez still look the same?
- 90’s fashion is awesome – neon colors, stripes, denim jackets, leggings, boots with skirts, off the shoulder tops, sweat pants as pants, form-fitting dresses
It’s funny to see what they wore back then and then to see how it’s been altered to meet fashion now. Everything about what I’m wearing below is a bit 90s – stripes, denim, leopard print, bangs, tennies, thick glasses, a fitted dress…but in a different way.
If I was 7 it’d be a stripe top, denim skinnies with little zippers in the back, disheveled bangs, super thick glasses, white Keds and a leopard print headband. Yeah – I was stylish back then too. I lied – if you saw me back then you’d run in hide. Trust me.
I actually really like this casual look; it makes running errands and doing every day things a bit easier. I could even throw on a pair of nude wedges to dress it up a bit more for work or dinner. Not going to lie – I love carefree outfits as much as I loved my carefree 90s days. I also love neon! Sometimes I wish I could go back – but with better hair.
