I generally miss most of the stores that used to be. Oh, I have a bonafide list of fashion stores that no longer exist that I wish I knew who to write to bring them back in business! Lol! Among those stores is one in particular by the name of Contempo Casuals.
I think they actually closed for good in 2000 or 2001, I’m not completely sure but it seems after Contempo Casuals closed all of the Wetseals, Forever 21s and other stores like them became extremely popular. I used to shop at places like Winklemans, Dots and of course Contempo Casuals. Well, I decided to wear a look inspired by the company as one of my favorite old stores to shop!
Back in the day, you could get real leather (before it became inhumane and offensive), real fur, and real wool designed to make the most fabulous pieces. My closet was amazing! I still have a few pieces from a few of my favorite places (and they are almost 20 years old), but I want to show some of the things you could put together from shopping at Contempo Casuals.
I’m calling this look Contemporary Casual. I simply grabbed one of my favorite pair of jeans and a slinky (ode to the 90s) mauve bardot top. In the 90s, there wasn’t need for a bunch of accessories in an outfit. So I’m not wearing much with this look. Of course I modernized the theory of this 90s inspired look with a chic handbag and chain detailed heeled sandals for an extra touch. Have you ever shopped at Contempo Casuals? If you have, do you remember the last thing you purchased?
P.S. I apologize for the low supply of pictures. I wasn’t feeling well.
Later Cupcakes 💋
