{Wardrobe} Wednesday: Remember Slap-Its?

10.12.2011

You know, those stiff, colorful bracelets that you were obsessed with in the early '90s and you had a hot pink glitter one, and a leopard print one, and a shiny lime green one that the plastic was coming off of? And you'd slap them on and off so many times that your wrist would turn red, so then you'd chase your siblings around trying to slap it on them, hoping that your wrists would heal so you could once again slap them on yourself?
Ya, I knew you remembered them. 
Well, how 'bout a watch that holds all the good time slappin' and none of the bad time pain?
I thought you might like that idea, so my friends over at softslap.com have donated a few of their signature watches for you! 
To Enter:
1. Just go to their website, tell me what color you'd like and your favorite thing about the '90s.
3. you can also tweet or fb about it for and extra entry!
Good Luck!
(Then the kittens came and I got really excited and distracted....)
The Breakdown:
Watch: c/o softslap.com
Rainbow Bracelet: gift from Loominosity
Sweater Top: ???

What I'd like to know is, how often do those generators pick number one?  :) Oh well... 
I'm obsessed with orange right now, buuuuut I think I'd go with black just because I'm boring like that.  
My favorite thing about the 90's?  How my mom and all my friends' moms wore bright colored nail polish.  (Okay, I was six years old.  That's all I remember.)  They just don't wear it anymore, which is weird since it looked so nice.  *RAMBLING ALERT*

Kaitlin said...

Yellow yellow yellow!!! I love this :)

Johanna said...

Ha, I never wore any of those.. I guess I'm too young? or live too far north? But I love the cute watches! I'd go with white I think. 
My favorite thing about the 90's would be the kids's TV-shows - I grew up with them and love them, even though they're mostly crap.

Ali said...

Purple! The gray is nice too, but I'm on a purple kick. My favorite part about the 90s was all the boy bands, and the panic over Y2K (late 90s, I know)

Kelseywiest said...

i love the grey! my favorite thing of the 90's was the tv programs and music. so great!

Emily Lo Cicero said...

Gray, just because it's neutral but not too harsh either way ;] Hmm the 90s, the 90s. I really loved those stirrup leggings,not gonna lie. As well as all of the awesome television shows!

Rebekah Haupt said...

This is such an amazing giveaway!! I miss Pinky and the Brain from the 90's. best. show. ever. I have no idea which color is my favorite my top 3 are grey, purple, and blue. 

Elizabeth Vollmer said...

The grey is perfect! The 90's, gosh...I love it all. I miss grunge, leggings, tying your shirt to the side, scrunchies and the tv shows...holy TV shows. My So Called Life, Rocko's Modern Life, Dinosaurs, Boy Meets World, X-men..I could really go on forever here! :)

Eryka H said...

Ooh I love the grey one :) My favorite thing about the 90's were the 1 hit wonders!!

talley said...

I like the grey one!


My favorite thing about the 90s was the music.  Most of the people weren't pretty but were good musicians!  Not like now... everyone's pretty and autotuned!  

Andrea Martin said...

i love the purple and the gray, but i think i'd go with gray because it's more neutral. favorite thing about the 90s? Probably Rugrats. My friends and i even had a Rugrats club, and we each had a different character doll.

Julie Stapley Manning said...

The white or blue one are very shnazzy.  My favourite thing about the 90's would  definitely be: skip-its, bop-its, the awesome t.v. shows and some of the musicians {savage garden, n'sync, spice girls...}

Robyn Carey said...

The purple is cute!

Pop music in the 90s ;). It was pretty awesome.

Dana Nez said...

I've been eyeing the blue one for months!
My favorite part of the 90's... Probably either the gel pen epidemic (I had SOOOO many) or all the legging pants and sweatshirts that my wardrobe was made of. :)

Meganlea83 said...

Ooh, I could totally relate to your descriptions of wearing slap-it's in the 90's. My siblings and I would chase each other around the house slapping each other with our bracelets until my mother would get frustrated and take them away from us. I love the pink one :) And my favorite thing about the 90's (well one of my favorite things) was the sitcoms...mainly Saved by the Bell and Family Matters.  :) -Megan
 

Tequila Mockingbird said...

Ha ha, I remember those! My fav thing about the 90s was coming into my own. I began taking ballet and was working in theatre. I was having the time of my life. I also began going out in drag. I sure could have used a softslap watch to know what time it was when I stayed out so late. lol.
I would definitely choose the purple watch. Purple is my favourite colour.

Abigail Leigh said...

The grey is so simple and pretty. Favorite thing about the '90s? Jelly sandels and tomagachis. 

Amber Maheu said...

I can't get enough of those kittens! So adorable. My mom totally has a snap-on watch right now haha. Looks cute on you, I love that color.

Becky Kerr said...

I love the grey! And gel pens take me straight back to the 90s. Also, arguing with my friends in the playground over who would get to be the pink one when we played Power Rangers! 
Check-it-out

Taylor Jess said...

ahhh cute! I love the blue one! As far as my favorite thing from the 90's goes. what's not to love? Boy Meets World, gel shoes, and of course slap-it's!

Nicole Helak said...

I love the yellow and the purple.
Also, I was having a pretty heated love affair with New Kids On the Block in the first year or two of the 90's. You know, 'heated' for a 5 year old means I totally had their beach towel, tapes, and a poster.

Kylie Pond said...
