My own little 1994 revival moment

I'm having my own little mid-90s revival all by myself this weekend. Over the past few days, I've bought Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in both Toast of New York and Rum Raisin (both high school favorites), a Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, and a Louis Vuitton monogram Speedy (though I did buy the 2011 version of this bag, the bandouliere—with the strap).

I'm hoping the bag will break in and the straps will get a little bit of a patina by summer. I haven't bought a Vuitton monogram bag since the Mini Marie came out more than a decade ago, and anyone who knows me knows a monogram isn't usually my thing, but I have a premonition that this summer will be a big monogram summer, trend-wise. So I'm prepping ahead of time. Fashion: it's a marathon, not a sprint, right?
