Beverly Hills, 90210 Trading Cards #3: New Kid in Town

Ah, Brandon.. seen here in his work outfit for the Beverly Hills Beach Club. This card describes him as a "nice guy", which is true enough for when the show started, but really the character evolved into more of a dude that just wanted you to think he was a nice guy. I still give him props for having sweet hair though.

Fresh Jewelry Choices

If you were a pre-teen or teenager in the 1990s, chances are you had at least one of these pieces of jewelry:

Giant chunky plastic rings. These would only stay on if I put them on my thumbs.

 Hemp or bead rings with clay beads. I always looked for these at craft fairs and souvenir shops. Must-have accessories for my tie-dye shirt/Birkenstocks outfit in middle school.

 Anything with dolphins on it.

 Something completely tacky from Claire's.

 A smiley face. Perfect complement to a yin yang charm.

 Chinese good fortune bracelet.

"What Would Jesus Do?" bracelet. A constant reminder to think about your actions first. Or just another thing to accessorize with, as it came in every color.

So many more pieces that I didn't keep: hard plastic pacifiers, "tattoo" chokers, slap bracelets, "Y" necklaces....
