90's Icon - Daria
Combat boots - check. Winter green jacket - check. Whimsical orange shirt - check. Oversized glasses - check. Pale, skinny legs sticking out of a cute-but-very-uncute-because-of-the-boots skirt - check check check.
Daria was my idol when I was growing up. She spoke in a monotone, she was sarcastic as hell, she looked tough, she had wicked hair and she was cool. I, too, was a skinny, pale, bespectacled teenager, so Daria was basically my poster girl. I also had a bit of a thing for Jane Lane, Daria's death-staring, PPQ-esque playsuit wearing, super skinny BFF (and incidentally owner of one of the best names ever). That red blazer was a source of much jealousy in my younger years.
