When I saw this ’90s picture of myself, my memories of wearing this pair of purple jeans came vividly alive to me. I remember having to rip the jeans myself as it was in trend. I also owned a green pair which I never tore, but that’s another story.
Frankly speaking, I’d much rather be in coloured jeans than those neon leggings, which were just as popular in the ’90s.
Tying a shirt around our waist, well, everyone was doing it back then! I guess I was channelling Vivien Ward (aka Julia Roberts) from Pretty Woman (see the image below).
They were mostly plaid flannel shirts, but my shirt here was not a random shirt, it was a tie dye shirt and tie dye clothing was also hugely popular during the ’90s. Plus I was so in love with the colour purple, therefore I did the shirt and jeans purple double dose!
This location shot was taken by Taiwanese photographer Tsong-Chii Lynn. It did not appeal to me that much back then but now this photograph is growing on me. I love Taiwan’s black sandy beach and the fading away mountains as the background.., they remind me of Chinese ink paintings.
