today i have a very special modern take on melrose place. i am obsessed with this show, all thanks to kelly-anne, thanks girl!. it is now streaming on netflix and tom & i are tangled in this horrible web it has woven for us. i hate all the characters, alison being the WORST, out of all of them but i just can't quit you melrose place! if you are not familiar with melrose place it is a show that took place during the 90's about a group of friends who all live in los angeles and live in the same amazing apartment complex.

it is filled with backstabbing, lies, sex and horrible horrible 90's fashion. the worst offender, to my eyes, is the oversized blazer.....are they hiding something in there? what is the purpose? i am not quite sure. when the show originally aired i was a bit too young, i remember watching it but never really understood what was going on, but now that i am older i totally get why this show is so amazing...thus my obsession that has lead to my own rendition of a modern take on a melrose place outfit.

  3. I remember Melrose Place as the next "big thing" after Bev Hills 90210 - but I was way too young to understand what was going on, but it made me think apartments were pretty much the coolest thing EVER!! Seinfield also made me think they were amazing, I imaged my friends & I could all live in the same apartment block and it would be AMAZING!!

    I really love you floral dress and cute shoes:)

  10. Your Melrose outfit is a thousand times better than anything that was ever actually worn on that show! I am especially loving your bright shoes. Great touch. On an unrelated note, I cant wait to get book 5 in the mail. I have been Jon Snow-less for way too long.

  12. you look BEAUTIFUL and i love your modern twist on melrose place style! also, i don't get those gigantic blazers they wore, and my guess is maybe thay planned to be prepared for shoplifting when they went out.

    1. haha yea maybe they were gonna shoplift or they are selling watches and wallets out of their blazer! hehe

  13. I was obsessed with 90210 when I was like... 10 years old, haha. But somehow I missed watching Melrose Place! My sister-in-law has all the DVDs so I'll have to borrow them to watch one day.

    I love your outfit! Those shoes are such a great colour!

  15. I love your outfit - especially the shoes (so shiny and bright and pretty)! I love ModCloth - anytime I need a dress, that's the first place I go! I've never watched "Melrose Place," but I love getting into a TV series like that on Netflix and being able to watch from start to finish! I'm starting season 3 of "Supernatural" now - love it!

  16. Ha ha ha that's so random that you've gotten into watching that old show! :D And it's hilarious that you're watching a show in which you hate all the characters ha ha you're so funny!
    I love your outfit though, definitely cuter than those in Melrose Place! I remember it from when I was little, I probably didn't really understand it either, but I also hated Allison already back then!

  20. hee hee, oh those good ol days :D I was 17 when Melrose first came on & I too loved to hate (& to oogle Jake); I think I only watched the first series or two, had been a big Bev Hills 90210 fan (as that started when I was 15), and YES, I must admit I had the oversize jackets! Will have to try to find you some photos, ha ha. Love your modern take on it, very cute! xox
