Hey James Bond, in America we drive on the right side of the road. I am. You try driving in platforms.

Classic 90s, Cher rocking some kick ass knee socks. Growing up Clueless was one of my favourite movies, to this day I associate knee socks with Cher Horowitz and my high school uniform. Unlike kilts and regulation grey dress pants I didn't develop any sort of aversion towards mary janes or knee socks and still wear them to this day. 

I remember seeing Clueless for the first time and wanting both Cher's revolving closet complete with outfit making software and every article of clothing worn in the movie. No one was wearing anything remotely similar to the Clueless cast's wardrobe (well except Josh and the stoners but that doesn't count because the movie makes fun of their clothing) when it was released. In the grunge era plaid flannel, greasy hair and doc martin boots were the uniform of the day. This film helped shift the 90s aesthetic away from the that look.

Because it was ridiculously and uncharacteristically hot yesterday I searched my drawers and rediscovered a pair of long forgotten boyfriend cut offs. Since I always feel a bit generic wearing shorts with sandals I threw on my favourite mary janes (that need to be replaced badly) and some patterned knee socks for something a little different.
