It wouldn’t be a proper TBT unless we paid homage to every middle school betch’s favorite destination for cheap multicolored accessories. That’s right, Claire’s.
You know the drill: your mom or dad would drop you and your besties off at the mall. You were probably wearing either Juicy tracksuits or Hardtail pants and a Sugar Lips tank. Then you hit all your regular spots: Abercrombie, Hot Topic—jk you ran right past Tot Topic--and finally you head to Claire’s because you need to up your accessory game.
It would be a waste of time to cover everything that sparkly purple haven had to offer so I’m just going to do a tbt to honor all my favorite items previously sold at Claire’s. It’s like a TBT inside a TBT. A TBT-ception, if you will.
So we salute you, Claire’s. We’re not really sure how tf you’re still in business, and you really missed the mark with Icing, but your shitty plastic "jewelry" was nonetheless a part of every 90’s betch’s tween years.
*Sidenote: if your parents were actually delusional enough to think it was a good idea to have a teenager punch a hole in your ears and not charge you for it, I feel bad for you.
