It's Lisa Frank Bitches

Being born in '83, my formidable years were spent to the tune of the '90's. While there was a lot of great garage rock to come out of that decade I was too young to appreciate it till later on. I still view the whole damn beginning part of the 90's as a cesspool of terrible style, awkward school dances and even awkwarder growing pains. And to top it all off I got to spend some really great (sarcasm) years wearing this stylish accessory

no, that's not me, but I did have her outfit. 6th grade was awesome yo!(Again sarcasm)

Anyway, eventually I had surgery and blossomed into the totally hot and rad gal I am today but, as I'm sure all of you had as well, there were some pretty gnarly times.

One thing I do think back fondly on though was my INSANE collection of Lisa Frank. Every year after the depression of getting my back to school list subsided I would shake with excitement knowing I was soon to be in possesion of some brand new Lisa Frank School supply magic of my own. God, I remember staring at my folders and trapper keepers like they were the Mona Lisa. Obviously it had some crazy impact cause well, look at me, I still dream of unicorns and puppies holding paintbrushes on a daily basis.
Ladies, can I get a Amen? Who among you coveted these fine works of art?







Oh and how cute is she below? Totally stoked! I totally had that banana folder too

Oh hell yes! I totally remember the childhood Lisa Frank obsession. I had all the school supplies, but I don’t remember the clothes… bummer!
