Since when are the 90's considered vintage?

Okay, so I wore these in the 90's and now they are apparently hip again. (Or maybe they are from the 80's - it's all a blur by now)

Anyway, they are actually considered VINTAGE. Since when is the 90's vintage? Wasn't that just a few years ago?

I guess I always thought vintage meant like really old. You know, something from the 70's or older. I am sure some fashionista friend out there will let me know the skinny here - please.

I suppose vintage just means old. So, to my kids - I am vintage. To my grandma - I am a spring chicken. It's all about perspective. At any rate, my brain keeps forgetting to tell my body that I am not 24 anymore.

If you want some, you can go to Giant Vintage and get them along with all kinds of other vintage style sunglasses from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

Not for me, but maybe one of you spring chickens will enjoy them!

Yes, I too am troubled with the 90's being considered vintage!!!!

Also, didn't we already live through those times? Don't we have pictures of high school and college that we laugh at while wearing all these crazy trends?

It's like last season when all the 80's stuff made a comeback... in my opinion, it was too soon. I was still getting over the trauma of permed hair with high bangs, and all that neon clothing with the shoulders cut out. Living through it the first time was enough! :)

Oh, that makes me feel VERY, VERY old.

So if I remember the 80's and 90's, does that make me vintage (you know, like back when dinosaurs roamed the earth)? :-)

Something has to be at least 20-25 years old to be considered vintage. I don't really consider 90s to be vintage, though many would argue that it is. Hope that makes you feel a little better, haha.
