A look back at all things 90’s: Both good and rad.

From paprika to cumin, there aren’t numerous spices that really make a large impact on a society.  But in the late 1990’s, people everywhere were spicing up their lives with a little British flair.

Not since Beatle-mania, Americans were embracing the latest export from across the pond with open arms.  Perhaps it was a fun escape from a decade of change and turmoil, or perhaps it was a middle finger to the grunge movement, but nothing paved the road for the return of pop music like the Spice Girls.

It was one of the first CD’s I had to run out and get.  I was waiting outside of Tower Records (anyone?) and I must have been about 10 or 11, eagerly anticipating the sheer brilliance of the fabulous five-some.  Did I identify with Victoria Beckham and her ’97 Gucci Mini dress?  Maybe.  Did I drag my family to see “Spice World” about 100 times? Absolutely.

The Spice Girls served up a heaping platter of girl power, and paved the way for the entitled empowerment the female stars of today receive.  With glittery accessories, platform sneakers and a union jack dress, these London ladies were a part of the 90’s I will never forget.  I pine for the day when I have to explain to my children what a “Wannabe” was.
