Lovers of All Things 90s: Present Haul and Kurt and Courtney in Sassy!

Lately, and for the last few months, I've felt consumed by all things 90s. So you can imagine my delight when I saw that the website, I Heart Daily posted a flashback entry about Sassy Magazine's 1992 cover article on Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love!! They have a pdf of the article itself AND an interview with Christina Kelly about her experience conducting this interview for Sassy in the early 90s. You should definitely check it out!

This entry was aptly timed for me, as I received some fantastic bday presents from Chris to help me nostalgically revive my 90s style.

Brick red Doc Martins and a Jessica Kagan Cushman "I want to be the girl with the most cake," bangle referencing the Hole song, "Doll Parts." Also pictured are a few of my other winnings: A book locket necklace from etsy seller, birdsnbeez that nods in the direction of steampunk (without going over the top, imo), and Fresh lemon sugar perfume. Thank you Chris!

I bought a pair of Docs for hiking just a month or so ago, and suddenly *poof* they were in again. I'm so glad I got them on sale...

Awww ::::sighs:::: I miss Sassy, such a good magazine, do you think they'll ever bring it back? *Hopes*

Jennifer Nicole, you have great timing!!

Eyeliah, I was also a 90s teen so the entry made me very nostalgic!

S, He is indeed a good gift giver! :)

Hippyhippychic, Isn't it great?!

Gingersnap, It would be so amazing to bring it back but sadly, the medium of print seems so risky for even the already successful mags out there. I doubt any publishers are in a rush to fund a start-up in this economy.

Is it sad that I actually remember Sassy and very well, too? I miss the 90's as well and I think it was one of the best decades--but I might be a little biased :)
